I am an active adult 2nd Category tournament player. I view this site as a superb way to sharpen my opening knowledge and see lots of positions. Feel free to connect with me as I love the fight that is Chess...and as a former undefeated US Amateur Boxer, believe me, I can appreciate it. For those of you who may still question my manhood I will state emphatically that I rode R-E-A-L Bulls in Upstate New York during College. And survived wit only minor internal bleeding. Skydiving is something that I enjoyed but did not complete the Certification Course. Majored in History and relish new knowledge. I have a fondness for the Russian language and I bleed Green for the Philadelphia Eagles.
