Formally "tranquilsimplicity", the realisation that Chess is a strong element in the life I lead has prompted me to re-register after a few months absence. However, the absence was illusory in the sense that I regularly read Kibitzers' posts but could not comment; and in most cases would have preferred to maintain silence. And therefore I once again make an entrance hoping never to depart. Nevertheless this time around my contribution (if I ever did contribute) will remain low-key, but I hope will be of some use and if not at least enlighten, entertain. I also thank many Kibitzers on this site who happen to be erudite, enlightened, polite and willing to assist the fresh entrant to this "Royal Game".
Smitten by this beautiful game rather late, like my Chess idol Mikhail Chigorin, I revel in tactical mêlées, and seek positional sacrifices and combinations. I have a penchant for an attack on the King, and my repertoire includes the King's Gambit, Sicilian Defence, Petrov, Dutch and King's Indian Defence.
If not playing Chess at home in London where I reside, or not quietly listening to music the comfort of my residence, I can be found seeking out the sun on the beaches of the African coastline, Kenya, from where I originate.
My pleasure to make your acquaintance.
