I started Chess about three years ago and set a goal to crack 1000. I lost almost every single game for about a year and slowly (very slowly) got better and I finally crested 1000.
Then Poof! I lost all interest in the game and dropped off the Chess.com radar. I couldn't stay away though.
I am glad to be playing again and to see my old friends and meet new ones as well. The Chess community is a true community and I am fortunate to be a part of it.
If you want to play a game, just send me the challenge. I will try to give a good game or at least use the experience to learn.
