I'm an amateur player from Singapore and despite having a full-time job and getting on in age, I still harbor the lofty ambition of becoming a Grandmaster.

Chess is an incredibly tough game and I will share my experiences here so that hopefully, someone might avoid the mistakes that I have made in the past!

Some of my achievements include:

- Took part in 6 Chess Olympiads;  

- 2 Grandmaster norms;

- Singapore National Champion 7 times;

- Board 2 bronze at 2012 Asian Team Championships;

- Combined 3 Bronzes medals at the South-East Asian Games in 2003 & 2005;

- Nanyang Technological University Sportsman of the Year 2005

Apart from playing, I am also a top blogger on chess.com, and I am also chess.com's official book reviewer. You can see my book reviews on this blog.

I have also wrote a chess book titled Chess Developments, 6.Bg5 Najdorf which has been widely acclaimed by players such as Matthew Sadler, David Smerdon and Daniel King.  (see for instance, https://www.chess.com/article/view/review-the-sicilian-najdorf-6-bg5). I was also an author for Chesspublishing.com, a premium opening theory site. My current elo is 2457.
