Learned to play at 6, played for Grimstad sjakklubb from the age of 10 to 12, then quit the game completely for 25 years - something I really regret in hindsight! Now play for Kampen in Oslo, play for fun and to get better. Dan Heisman has been a major influence in understanding chess and how to improve, i wish I knew of his work when I was a kid! Best achievement is winning my section (then u 1250) in the national championship of rapid chess in January 2013. Enjoy the slow chess environment at chess.com.
