I've been playing chess since I was four.  By the age of ten, I was a strong player and people had great hopes for me.  I have been getting steadily worse since then...

So, yes, my brain doesn't work as well as it once did, but I enjoy playing on chess.com and in the odd congress.  I play mainly on my iPhone, which is incredibly distracting, but in a good way.

I have a real weakness for playing King's Gambit accepted with 3. Bc4.  I have a liking for tactical complexity over long term strategical games, so like anything with an edge to it.

Away from chess, I spend most of my time cooking.  I enjoy wine a little too much, play the odd game of tennis, and do a lot of reading, mainly sci-fi on the fiction side, and anything to do with physics and technology.  I am also currently doing a second university degree in mathematics, which may or may not be a good idea alongside a full time job.  Time will tell...
