 I am a Czech grandmaster born in 1985. I have written a book My Chess World (Thinkers Publishing, 2020), containing my games, essays and observations. I am also a co-author of the book The Secret Ingredient (Quality Chess, 2021), which has been written mostly by a Slovak GM Ján Markoš. Currently I should be working on another book for Thinkers Publishing, but I am playing too much chess instead, both over the board and online.

 I not playing much from this account now, as I do not want to reveal my preparation for OTB events. Nowadays I only play from here from time to time to show that I am alive and in order. I am almost never playing long strings of games here, mostly just a few games to get into shape. I am mostly playing some nonsense here, but sometimes it is high-quality nonsense!

This is the nicest mate which I have ever delivered on FormerProdigy vs. Mikhail_Bryakin | Analysis -

And here are a few other nice games:

Chess: penguingm1 vs FormerProdigy - 57906012877 -

Chess: FormerProdigy vs nissou-ach - 61614647447 -

In April 2021 I learned that changing the animation speed from fast to none can save me some precious time. This has slightly reduced the number of my losses on time, which has been steadily high.

 I am a big fan of Chess960 as well, but mostly play it elsewhere. I would be glad to play some blitz Chess960 games against other GMs from time to time.

 Please forgive me for rejecting or even blocking friendship requests. It is nothing personal, I am just not a big fan of social media and would find it strange to have hundreds of internet friends whom I don't really know, when I often lack time to meet my long-time friends in person. I also often disable messages here to concentrate on other things, typically on my OTB tournaments. That said, I generally like other people (like you)!

Thank you for your understanding!
