Personal Notes

Note: If you use an engine against me, I will check the game for accuracy and message Speedtrap routinely about it.

FIDE CM (over 2250 in 1992). CM IS now recognised by ICC as of 2016. Also in the top UK 100 Rapid player list as well, which is actually more relevant in any case. If you like web-based email chess, try out

I like the following people:- Amethyst, FatandMad, TheCypriot, Drunkenight, GamesMaster, Krakken, Nutcracker, HolyCity, KnightShadow, PrincessLea, Juliet

ICC is good fun, dont get upset if you lose on time or get swindled by me. On the chessboard in 3 minute chess I am ruthless. You are free to do the same to me if you want revenge!

My youtube channel at has a big variety of videos where I am currently trying to do a regular series of instructive games. I sometimes post links to those video annotations on the relevant games here. Please use the "Subscribe" button on my channel to keep
