Originally from Rochester NY, my parents were Cold War immigrants from Eastern Europe. Since it is so big in that part of the world, I learned Chess at an early age.

I am interested in the idiosynchracies of Chess, and disdain the movement to reduce it to formulas and algorithms. I study rare openings and their peculiar names; I have assembled a few collections that cover the most notable lines.

Game Collection: Unorthodox Games; Unusual Names (ECO=B,C)

Game Collection: Unorthodox Games; Unusual Names (ECO=A,D,E)

Well, there's also the puns. I try not to take things too seriously. It is just a game.
