I have played chess for more than three years. I am interested in the complexity and logical calculation of the game. With limited time and only self study, I hope to gradually increase my understanding of chess so I can both enjoy my play and watch the games of other people, especially master games.
Here is a sample online game I played recently.

Online chess is a good slow chess. Sometimes, I don't have enough time or get tired playing many live chess games. Chess is fun and good brain exercise.
