I love competetive games, such as chess, go, subspace/continuum, wing chun kung fu, street fighter, ping pong, etc. My favorite player is Nimzowitsch. I prefer people that are honest and open, and don't bring a bunch of ego baggage to the game. If you're honest about improving your game, you're willing to be criticized about your game. Likewise, you are willing to give criticism. We can all learn from each other, on our way to mastery.
