Tom DiMarco from Red Hill, PA about 25 miles from Allentown, PA and 40 miles from Philadelphia.
Taught chess by my mother Susann at about nine and helped by my father and friends to improve.

My favorite quote is by Savielly Tartakover

Larry Christen sells his books here larryC for $20 he autographs them.
My favorite chess book is Winning Chess by Irving Chenev. Reuben Fine is a very good author.
