I studied chess in Russia. Then I played in many tournaments and got "Candidate" grade. After repatriating to Israel I participated in local league. But now I play only in blitz tournaments and via Internet .My best Rating on ICC is 2289, on PlayChess - 2193 . For White I like Two Knights and Sicilian with 2. c3 . For Black - French Defence and Petrov. Except chess, I like to play ping-pong . I try to promote a new game: Shah-Pong (combination of Chess and Ping-pong).
