Chessical
Member since Nov-03-03 · Last seen Oct-14-19
I am an UK chess player who plays OTB and correspondence. I particularly appreciate the games of Tal, Alekhine, Tarrasch and Capablanca.

I am particularly interested in the history of chess since the 19th century. I now spend most of my time here working on games collections.
