As a child I learned the rules of chess. Since then it has my interest, although I have been very rarely actively involved.
By chance I discovered chess.com and that inspired me to give chess serious attention both by studying the game as by playing the game.
By now I consider chess as my biggest hobby. I also like to read an exciting book, I like to watch a good movie or documentary, I listen to music (especially rock) and I watch a lot of (international) soccer.
