I'm a club player. Correspondence chess is for me a way of practising, learning and enjoying the game. I don't care much about my rating going up or down, I want to play interesting games and have fun. I play mostly a few moves a day, but if things get complicated I take my time to analyse. I do use opening books and databases during my games. (No chess engines of course). Feel free to have a look at my chess website Chess Improvement if you are interested in bringing you chess to a higher level.
