About tappa

Live in Dublin, Ireland. Retired, into lawn bowls, concerts, trying to live within my means !! I get bored easily so chess keeps the grey cells active. I will take skulls.
In the 1970s I played No.1 board for British Telecomms in the London Leagues. Just so you know, in Ladder matches, I will normally take the max time allocated.
My chess bible is the book of Modern Chess Openings by Walter Korn, which I purchased back in 1972 - I dare say opening theory and analysis has improved since then ??
Finding it hard going against some of the higher graded players on this site, they make it look so easy !!
Is fearr an t-ádh leat. (best of luck to you)
