I wish I had more time for chess, but usually work is what occupies my time.

When I can play, I play at ICC (there are no local chess clubs where I live). I primarily play in the 3-minute pool there, and my rating hovers around 1950 - 2050. I like playing there because I usually get to play a game against an IM at least once a day. I am about 100 points shy of being able to consistently play GMs.

My USCF rating is only 1697, but I do not get to play in tournaments more than once every few years. The last one I played in my rating went up 186 points. It is hard to play in tournaments when there are none in your area.

I am a huge Nakamura fan.
