I am a current United States Chess Federation member although my rating here is still a provisional 1001 in the u.s.c.f. I was trained by 4 awesome coaches from around the world. Thank you so much coach Mika, Eugene, Johann,and Chava. Although my rating is provisional I am not to be under estimated a s a player as I am a very rounded player who has been known to even take on a few grandmasters. I like music, Traveling, Going to chess tournaments, Watching action and a few slapstick style movies. Chess club. I also Love being in church with my pastor and his family. I like hanging out with friends and family, I am a skilled chess player of 22+ years, I am very laid back and easy going. I can be somewhat a perfectionist and a realist with a sadistic side rolled up in one. I am a thinker and a problem solver. I love playing chess while listening to music or some ambient style of music; Chess is my passion, There is no other game to me that has such intrigue than this ancient game of kings. I study chess to further my playing style in both positional or tactical, along with the classical and modern school of thought. Some of my favorite openings are the The Caro Khan, The Scotch, The Verasov system. My favorite grandmasters are in order of succession Alekhine, Botvinnik, Tal, Fischer, Kasparov. I do my best to come up with brilliant innovations like that of Fischer and Kasparov, And if i fail in my calculations then I try to learn why that idea did not work out. I love tactics a lot and play over tactical puzzles at every opportunity I get. Please feel free to email me here at chess.com if you have any questions.
