About kb5

This chess playing format has revived my regular interest in the game, an almost surprisingly enjoyable way to play.

I like to play promptly and boldly. I check my games at least twice most days.

My howling blunders engender both searing self-recrimination and a probably unjustified belief that my rating could be higher.

Only an infidel could use a machine against a player in this great game.

I also dabble in wildlife biology ; lately a Pygmy Possum ecology project through a Nest Box Study.

I like cycle touring (and have journals on a great website crazyguyonabike.com) .
