I'm a North American, but live in Guatemala.

In terms of chess, I'm an amateur of mediocre ability. I have loved chess since I was in grade school, but only played in one tournament, which was when I was a kid.

catlover: Accordingo to Vekcevich's bio page, he was not only a grandmaster but also earned a Ph.D. He was later considered for a Nobel Prize in chemistry. Must have been a smart guy. He seemed to quickly get a dominating position in this game.
   Aug-25-18 Blackburne vs W R Ballard, 1872 (replies)

catlover: <patzer2>, congratulations on losing 30 pounds and pursuing a healthier lifestyle. That is not easy to do. If your new lifestyle does indeed result in you visiting this site less often and posting with less frequency, you will be missed. I have especially appreciated your ...
