My name is Alex. I have been playing chess since i was 7 which means i'm a very good player. First, my grandfather taught me and then i began to learn from a book of world champion Anatoli Karpov and was impressed by his games. Later i was inspired by a book of world champion Alexander Alekhin's games and was similarly impressed with the play of Gary Kasparov, Emanuel Lasker and Bobby Fischer. In august 2010 i received the FIDE Master title. I currently train with GM Anna Muzychuk since 2011 when we became close friends.
