i first learned chess when I was 8 years old. From the get go, i fell in love with this game and developed a strong aptitude to learn different positions and practice many end games. if you play with me, you may notice that i will sacrifice my queen over a bishop or something like that.. that's my style ;) in high school, I participated in chess competitions and made it to the nationals. At once my peak rating was 2100 but then i left chess and haven't practiced since. i recently started playing seriously again and i'm hoping to improve as we play. perfection is a moving target.
