I was born in 1960 - the year a young Mikhail Tal became World Champion.

After leaving the British junior chess circuit I started working unusual hours and have done ever since. For that reason I had very little chance to play chess as an adult, and instead bought chess books. At least 1000 have passed through my hands, and I have gone over at least 50,000 Master level games.

I am fascinated by chess as an evolutionary process, and have been writing about chess history since the days when I had to type up articles on a stencil for a 'duplicating machine'. 

There is a saying :- 'No-one is entitled to an opinion. Everyone is entitled to an informed opinion. Who would say that they are entitled to ignorance.' Sometimes things that ' everybody knows' are not true.

All chess players are my friends - except the rude ones!!
