Brooklyn born and raised, though I'll probably be living in Washington Heights by the time someone's reading this.
Nyu law student, hopefully joining the Marshall club for summer 2015, joining the uscf and actually getting a tournament rating. If I had to estimate where I'll fall, I'd say ~1800 based on my chess.com games and the informal ones I play at Washington Square Park.
Here to learn from the keen analysts I've seen in the kibitz section, and the great masters whose games are preserved for posterity. A big fan of the guess the move resource as well
Favorite players are tal, nezhmetdinov,Fischer, bronstein, polgar, kasparov, Anand, Carlsen, Lasker, morphy, Pillsbury... Well, for the most part that tells you what I'm into.
I admire the karpovs and petrosians of the world and wish I had more of a feel for positional and prophylactic play, but at this early stage of my development aggression and tactics are where I find the most pleasure.
