Former postal expert in '90s. Learned early in shadow of Fischer/Spassky. I strive to play inspired chess using many openings, but can also grind out wins and draws in the endgame. I seem to be using the Robin Hood philosophy of chess, robbing the rich of rating points, and giving to the poor. I enjoy tournaments especially thematics (specific openings) but have no time for puzzles or lessons. Never been good at blitz live or online so I avoid it for the most part. Only discovered online chess in 2016 and solely on chess.com. I enjoy the online communities of various chess clubs and have gradually been drawn into leadership roles.
