I am trying to make a comeback after reaching Expert in 1987 and then taking a 27-year break.  After a rocky three years I'm edging back up toward Expert again, or at least four recent wins against masters let me hope so.  I think my play is nearly as strong as in the 80's, but my local community is terrifically strong, especially the kids....

I thrive on insane positions where both sides could lose at any moment.

A brief note on the WCM title:  This title is earned for a FIDE rating of 2000 or greater, which I held in the 1980's; the title did not exist at the time but I applied for it when I returned to competition.  My FIDE rating is currently much lower due to participating in events designed for young players to earn FIDE ratings.
