I learnt how to play chess when I was around 8 or 9. I lived in a small town in India where there weren't too many opportunities to play, no books to learn from and no Internet. I sort of just stopped playing except for the odd game once in a while till I discovered chess.com I'm enjoying exploring the game, learning about it, and playing against people from all around the world. I don't mind chatting during a game (prefer it) and would love to know your opinion on my moves. If you think I made a mistake someplace, tell me about it. If you'd like to know what I think you could have done differently in a game, ask me and I'd be happy to look at lines with you.
