occupation: programmer hobbies: sleeping, beer, classic games, motorcycles, having hip surgery misc: - i enjoy competition most when my opponent's incompetence rivals my own :) - play here due to variety of international, friendly and mature players - don't care about ratings except finding evenly matched opponents (see first point ). - i play over-the-board like a live game. tried analysis. wasn't worth it to me.. - prefer FRC (chess960) over classic game, (chaos, but taken seriously in chess world) - generally i am a fast player. - don't care if you play fast or slow. the point is to have good fighting it out!
