The Famous Chess Cat
Member since Oct-12-09 · Last seen Sep-22-10
Raised by a pack of wolves as a child in the boreal mountains of Canada, I one day confronted a Druid within the artic wilderness I called 'home'. The wolves were kind, but their lifestyle was not for me. So, when the Druid extended his philanthropy and offered me his home, I gladly accepted.

It was the sagacious elder who taught me chess. Every morning, we awoke and climbed atop the nearby mountains. There we would sacrifice livestock to Caissa, chess's elegant goddess. It was due to this ritual that Caissa began smiling upon me.

Now I am wayward on a road to chess mastery, a road complete with an icy coldness chilling the soul. And so, donning my parka and snow shoes, I set out to fulfill a destiny far greater than any could dream.

With a unicorn avatar, and a username no less charismatic than "The Famous Chess Cat", I bid you all a jolly good day.

The Famous Chess Cat: In the book "Tal-Botvinnik 1960" written by Mikhail Tal, Tal says the following: "White's edge in the center, stemming from the passivity of Black's king Bishop 'biting on granite' with the pawn on e5, cramped Black's position and no one had much faith in it. At the end
