What a nice surprise you are reading this. Welcome! Iím Sicco Reeskamp and member since 2005 (although the system thinks otherwise). Although my chess rating has not been above the 1600 yet, I really can appreciate a good game. Many chess icons inspire me, e.g Capablanca, Lasker, Alekhine, Euwe, Fischer, Spassky, Karpov, Korchnoi and Kasparov. And this site has brought many other great players under my intention, e.g. Zuckertort, Gulko, Larsen or Short. My favourite chess teacher is by far Simon Williams, I love his dvds. But Akobian and Seirawan are great internet teachers as well. By the way, Iím Dutch. And live nearby Amsterdam. And as the biggest chance is that you are American, we have a connection, did you know? Being the founders of New York, words as dollar ( daalder), boss (baas), yankee (Jan Kees), the capitalistic financial system and the tolerance of religion stems from Amsterdam (please read Shortoís highly recommended book 'Amsterdam'). So you might have guessed it already, history is a passion of mine. And now back to the chess games, cheers!
