I have played chess since 2001, when I happened upon a simultaneous exhibition at my school's annual fair. I got destroyed in that game, and that was the beginning!
I love the community that has grown around chess, the friends I've made in the game, and all the things the game has taught me.
According to "Chess Personality" I am a romantic chess player who should study the games of Ivanchuk, should play Sicilian as black and Ruy Lopez as white. I do not play Sicilian, but I do enjoy Ruy Lopez games.
In my opinion chess is all about fostering your own ideas, not playing like others, and taking as many risks as possible After all, it is just a game. And all deaths that occur on the board are restored upon the next game.
