Hi everyone! I am someone who is very much a patzer in chess as I became interested in the game in 2014, so bear with me! I am from Finland and I was born in 1993.

To name a few, say, five of my favourite players then they are Bobby Fischer, Tigran "Iron Tigran" Petrosian, Mikhail Botvinnik, Boris Spassky and Bent Larsen. I like them; doesn't mean I understand them well! As you can probably tell I consider 50-70's the best period of chess.

Anyways, I'll do my best to be respectable and friendly. As a beginner, I will surely learn a great deal from you. I have scrolled this site for some time anonymously so I know some knowledged users by name already. That being said, sow the seeds of chess knowledge and I will send you my blessings!

P.S I will be posting on quite many games so if you are bored and in need of a serious laugh provided by ill-digested ideas, visit the games I've kibitzed on!

   Dec-23-16 Spassky vs G Uusi, 1958 (replies)
A.T PhoneHome: Funny that after the sacrifice the only White pieces to move are Queen and Knight: the rest of the armada sitting still for the rest of the game.
   Nov-30-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)

   Nov-16-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
A.T PhoneHome: I'm glad this match has been about pure chess. I mean that there has been nothing about Russians trying to cheat or such, which usually is brought up and in dramatic fashion, if I may add. I've been very pleased about that.
   Aug-15-16 Sinquefield Cup (2016) (replies)
A.T PhoneHome: Belated congratulations to Wesley So! The final score may not spell "daring", but that shouldn't dim your first super tournament victory.

A.T PhoneHome: I've been studying mate, takes most of my focus these days. But yeah, haven't been hiding!
   Feb-20-16 Fischer - Spassky World Championship Match (1972) (replies)
A.T PhoneHome: Cold War did have an effect on the popularity of chess (say, Soviets saw it as a way to promote communism). But Fischer also contributed greatly, not only with his playing, but also by making demands etc. which benefited players and made chess appear more serious plus other ...

A.T PhoneHome: There's only one thing this player page is missing and that's Charles Wright Mills. By the way, I like reading your posts people, good on you! As for Trump, it's an absolute no from me. United States of America has no use for a leader incapable of maintaining amicable, ...
