Spent most of my childhood getting beat by my older sister at every game. Now she only beats me 4 out of 5 games!

Have been playing on + off since I was five. Began to take study more seriously two months ago when SLO Dogs chess team began on GameKnot. Have totally got my butt kicked but steady improvement has followed. Currently investigating the mysteries of pawn structure + and end game strategy. As stated by the great late Douglas Adams: "The trick to flying is to throw yourself at the ground and then try to miss."

Chess is more than a game; it’s a sport, -a mental martial art- and a worthy lifetime pursuit. It repays manifold the energy & time we put into it.
