Almost Nobody

I've had a go at playing correspondence on a number of bigger, flashier sites, but find that now I play just here and through

All I'm really after is a few ongoing games which don't peter out through timeouts, which I've found happens frequently on the larger sites which seem to be more concerned with boasting about member numbers than the experience of those members during a visit there. Anyway, Schemingmind is a friendly corner of the net and I'm grateful to Austin it's there. 

I'm eminently beatable - a quick nose through my stats shows I lose a little more than I win; I don't care - a good game is a good game. 

Other than that, I'm happily married with 2 great kids, enjoy reading and watching test cricket. Like everyone else I'm hopeful that this terrible pandemic will pass and we can some normality back. Stay safe and enjoy your chess!
