Hello, I have been a member of this site for 10 years. It's a great site and my favourite place on the net.
I find that whether I win or lose, I learn something from every game.

Courtesy and politeness in chess are important to me but I have a good sense of humour so dont think I'm too serious. IC is a great place to play chess and through chess a good place to make friends from all over the world.

I am probably one of the very few members of IC who speaks Welsh and that means a lot to me. 'Rwy'n barod wrth gwrs bob amser siarad yn Gymraeg gyda'r aelodau IC sy'n siarad yr hen iaith fel finnau.
