Personal Notes

I am going to track my progress on the road to GM at my website

Check my library for many interesting games, many gm wins and otherwise notable games. It's rare that I add one lately

If I just beat you on time because I made dozens of moves in under 2 seconds, it's called "premove". "/help premove". Every move costs 0.1 seconds even if you premove

Search youtube for 'zenchess' for my chess channel, there is another weird 'zenchess' channel but it will be pretty obvious which one is mine

Always available to analyze a game we just played

As for the name 'zenchess' - I used to be into zen buddhism, was never a practitioner or did any serious meditation practice. At this point I have rejected most 'spiritual' stuff, it's a lot of woo-woo nonsense, and what is valuable is hard to find

The truth does not care about your feelings or biases.

Only by letting go can we possess what is real
