With me I can usually know after the opponents first move just how aggressive my moves will be, if I'm playing black, if the opponents opening move is defensive, my first move is offensive... but no matter which side I'm playing, my basic strategy is to gain immediate control of the center of the board... hmm, may be shooting myself in the foot for revealing that  :D

I seem to have a different strategy based on who I'm playing. I can't say that I know what strategies from the other cause me to go conservative or aggressive, but I do notice that I seem to change styles a lot.

I used to have a weekly game with a buddy, but he moved away. It's sad. I guess this is a way to get a game going again.

Come on folks, even if you aren't into gaming that much, a session of relaxed atmosphere business discussion over a spirited game of Chess might surprise some of you stressed out "all business" youngsters at its ability to RELIEVE THAT STRESS...

I go for blood right out of the shoot but since I like to play fast I am most definitely prone to miss things and make silly mistakes, I CAN be beaten but you can bet I'll give ya a good game and conversation, anyone got a cigar?
