I’m a chess player and I spend most of my free time studying and playing chess. This site is mostly for my own purposes of tracking my studies so I remember what I’ve done. Sometimes I will share tips I’ve learned along the way or other things I find interesting. I also experiment with chess-related technology projects which are documented here.
Start here for site highlights, descriptions of my study and projects, and shortcuts to all the best articles.
