About kbear1k

Played a lot in college 25 years ago. Starting to get back into the game. Rating used to be 2300+ USCF. Hope folks will still play while I try to get my online rating higher. I will use database programs, my collection of Informats, New In Chess Yearbooks, ECOs etc. I will also use endgame analysis books, and endgame databases (Encyclopedia of Chess Endings) - not tablebases. I also have a large collection of older games along with old collections of 64 and Shakhmatny SSSR. I do not use chess programs (PC based or stand alone) I will often spend hours agonizing on a single move.
I will only play clan or league games at this moment.
