Hello Fellow Chess Players and Game Enthusiast, I can certainly help you not only to improve your game whether you are a astute active tournament player (for rating under 1500), wanting to be able to play a good game with your friends and/or rival, and/or just to have fun with this game whether you play online or with a board and pieces.
I have been playing tournament chess for over 25 years and achieved a Life Candidate Master Title by the US Chess Federation since 1996.
