Started playing chess at age 6...never had any coaching...i stopped playing after 2006 but started playing again in 2014 I am an absolute HUGE fan of Mikhail Tal and if if I could play half as creative as him I would be able to say I have lived now haha I enjoy unsound sacrifices for no clear win but still have so much to learn its not even funny:) My OTB rating is 1468 chessa which is very close to the uscf ratings I also play guitar(Rock only) and am a big fan of the old school stuff i love this game as well as video games ex rpgs,strategies & survival horrors
