One of the greatest Chess players once said: [...] "Chess is a form of intellectual productiveness; therein lies its peculiar charm. Intellectual productiveness is one of the greatest joys--if not the greatest one--of human existence. It is not everyone who can write a play, or build a bridge, or even make a good joke. But in chess everyone can, everyone must, be intellectually productive, and so can share in this select delight. I have always a slight feeling of pity for the man who has no knowledge of chess, just as I would pity the man who has remained ignorant of love. Chess, like love, like music, has the power to make men happy." [...] Siegbert Tarrasch. ............................................................................................................................................. Although for me Chess is a great game, Mr.Tarrasch forgot to mention that Chess also has the power to make you very angry, especially when you lose. However not considered by many, it is, I think, the greatest sport ever. Thank You for playing and thanks also to the ones we don't see: GM, WGM, IM, IGM and all the greatest in the history of Chess who showed us how to play this game. I am a real person, I do not use an engine(computer) like most of You out there, not some time, not half of the time, not partially, not ever! I really don't understand people using engines when they play against other people. The worst is that they say "I only use it to see what is good to do in a given position, it's not like using it all the time" well You see that is the wisdom of a fool, I am sorry to disappoint you but that's actually using it. Helping yourself with computers is cheating and if You cheat here You most probably do the same in your own life. Perhaps when I play I don’t always do the best possible move, I even most of the time do the wrong one, but at least it is my move, my best original move and not the move of someone else. You can cheat some people some time, but not all the people all the time and even then You are only fooling yourself and You are not learning anything, but if You had that idea in the first place, You must be an empty soul looking for a fake profile. Let's keep this place free of cheaters and play real Chess the way it's supposed to be! Oh, and about me, well I am probably the greatest blunderer in the history of Chess nowadays, but I remember playing simultaneous games with pretty good results. I also created a chess club in school that is still there today, I organized tournaments, managed the club and became the champion, than I stopped playing for many years but this is history... I am back in Chess competition, only this time, I unfortunately don't have the same clarity as before, the same positional visualization and don't dream about chess positions anymore but still can kick your ass. Now this being said, I hope to be as relevant as one can be, and give as much challenge as I can, and all this as a fighter, a warrior, a Chessmen with style. In the Chess spirit, have a nice game! ____________________________________________________________________________________________Shadow_47 ............................................................................................................................................. “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” Albert Einstein
