I learned basic chess from my father when I was 6-7 then forgot about it until I was 18 and moved into a house where the landlord used to bet the months rent on games of chess at which point I studied the game very hard! I'm now 40 and still enjoy the game very much. I love Tal, his aggressive style I admire very much and only wish I had an iota of his talent for the game. Always happy to meet and play new and old players alike so feel free to challenge me. Cheers.
