I started to play chess in 1991. I joined to Jyvas-Shakki (Jyvas-Chess), the chess club of my home town, in 1996. My first tournament was in Jyvaskyla 1999. I started playing more actively as late as in 2005. Some OTB-tournaments I have taken part of: Jyvaskyla 1999, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009; Jyvaskyla (rapid chess) 2008, Keuruu (rapid chess) 2001, Seinajoki 2004, Heinola (rapid chess) 2006, Lahti (rapid chess) 2006, Lahti (long games) 2006, Mikkeli 2008, Mantta 2008, Mantta (rapid chess) 2009. Here in Chess.com I started in February 2009. I have participated in 7 online tournaments and several team matches. Latest news: Soon I will have my first ELO rating. I managed to achieve the second required result in the international Heart of Finland tournament in Jyvaskyla earlier this year (2010). The first result I made in last year's Heart of Finland Tournament. 2009: 1 point from 5 games (vs. players who have ELO rating) 2010: 2 points from 8 games PREREQUISITES TO GET ELO RATING: 9 games are required. The minimum result which will be accepted into ELO calculation is 1 point from 4 games in one single tournament. (The games should be played versus players who already have ELO rating and the tournament must be ELO rated.)  My new rating will be 1646 (like it is above) and it will be published on the list of September 2010.
