Personal Notes

Hello from National Master Richard Benjamin

No takebacks asked for nor given. Mouse slips happen to everyone and are simply part of the game on ICC.

I love chess therefore I am.

I have been a chess teacher for over a decade now.

I collect chess philately and paper ephemera to include, postcards, photographs, chess covers and cancellations, game scores and autographs of famous players, historical memorabilia, books, advertising, art work, and other items related to the game.

If you have any such material that you would like to sell or learn more about please message me!
