I learned chess from my older brother when I was about 8 years old. I am now 62. Lasker said, "Chess is a fight..." I like to compete and match wits with others in chess competition. I tend to like to play a logical positional style of chess rather than the more tactical attacking type. I love the players of the long ago past such as Lasker and Capablaca but masters of attack such as Alekhine, Tal, and Marshall are a favorite of mine also. I make my living as a full time rideshare driver for Lyft. As for my other interests, I love to sing Karaoke, read in the area of psychology, and run/walk for fitness. My cat is named Lasker after the former world champion. However, he seems to just want to eat the pieces! I guess that is his form of sacrifice! See you on the chessboard...
