School chess captain and then nothing 'til chess.com, 30 years later. Little bit re-addicted to chess now. Can be a beautiful game, though not so often if I am the one moving the pieces. I know it's academic, but I bust a gut to reach a 2000 rating...then relaxed and have found my truly recreational level. Fast mover, but slow thinker, which costs me many rating points! Have lived in several european countries and enjoy playing and having superficial chat with other international players so, until that should involve you......cheerio, adios, au revoir, yia sas, tot ziens, ciao!
