Hi. I'm a chess fan, but a fairly weak player (~1400)

The legends whose games interest me the most are: Paul Morphy, Mikhail Tal, Bent Larsen and R.J. Fischer. I also like N. Short, J. Speelman, V. Anand and the 2 K's. Of late I've become a fan of Tigran Petrosian.

I won a blindfold game against a friend once (I was, he wasn't). That was both quite unexpected and quite funny! Full Member
