About hbal

I am 52 years old and used to play chess when I was young, but then life happened and for some 30 years I didn't play a game of chess. Early 2018 I met an old friend, who challenged me on redhotpawn, and now I suddently find it quite amusing and fascinating. Like visiting an old place you haven't seen for many years and seeing it with new eyes.

Now celebrating my first year at RHP, I have had many interesting games and nice chats with some of my opponents (who have typically beaten me subsequently).

I still consider myself a learner and play for fun and intellectual exersize. I'd gladly have a few words of chat with you, as I play against humans and not just moving pieces on a screen.

I typically make 1-2 moves pr. game pr. day, but occasionally I will be away for a couple of days. I try not to have too many games going at the same time, but sometimes I fall in the trap and enter a tournament.

I much prefer to play rather than win by timeout, so if you know you'll be away, let me know. But if you just stay away without a word, I will claim the win.
