"My head is full of sunshine." ~ Mikhail Tal

♔♔♔

Built in 1974. Married. Father of 2 wonderful kids & I love chess (I wish I was more patient). I visit this site very often, but I don't write to much, because on thousands of sites I guess much has already been said, but from time to time I will post some games played by me. ;0] Thanks to CG.com for this wonderful website.

As a positional & strategically minded player I like the styles of Capablanca, Rubinstein, Nimzowitsch, Fischer, Tal, Petrosian, Karpov, Andersson, Kramnik, Gelfand, Yusupov & Dreev very much. That's all. :0]
