Personal Notes

I am a Project Manager, currently residing in Denver, Colorado --- whose 'addiction' is chess

I will not ask for takebacks -- I do not give takebacks. It's blitz baby,

I realize there are mouseslips - that's why God gave us a "RESIGN" button.

My most brilliant moves are indistinguishable from my mouseslips

I don't think there's ever a reason to get abusive and I think it's unfair to disconnect when getting trounced

I don't expect the same from you because you probably have a psychotic obsession with rating points

On the 12th day of THE OMER, my Chess Rebbe gave to me, 12 PGN files, 11 databases, 10 tricky tactics, 9 borba struggles, 8 dark brick patterns, 7 endgame problems, 6 O-penings , 5 secure Dachas, 4 mating patterns, 3 attacking ideas, 2 happy bishops,...and a pattern of Stra-te-gy!

2009 Colorado Open Reserve Champion:

"It is one of the insights of modern players, and especially of the best ones, that one has to play the position itself, not some abstract idea of the position." John Watson, Secrets of Modern Chess Strategy, 1998

Forest Gump got it wrong...Life isn't like a box of chocolates.... it's like a jar of jalepenos. What you do today may burn your bottom tomorrow!
