OK I admit it. I'm not really a robot at all. I'm a human being (sigh.) Apart from Chess, I love football (Translation: Soccer), good books, and English ale. I like nice kind gentle people, and try to be one, too. I think my most important job is father to my 2 sons. I have good & bad chess days. I suppose I'm an average opponent. If you feel you need to prepare for a game against me, here's a free hint: With white, I nearly always open 1.e4, but I'm trying to learn some different openings.
