Father of two beautiful boys, the center of my life. From time to time I get to enjoy this great web-site as one of my passions. Running is my other major hobby. Drop me a line or fire up a game. It's a great community here. Not sure why, but chess has always appealed since I was about 5 years old and had to WATCH. My worst piece was the knight, but it has become my favorite. Strictly amateur, never joined a club or even played in a tournament until now. Great web site. Let's play chess!
