About tappa

Live in Co Wexford, Ireland. Retired, into gardening, walks, more gardening and 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, can't remember my FIDE grading, but was County standard. 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 ??
In May 2017 I reached the magic 2400 grading, back to what I was in the mid 1970s - it only took me seven hard years on this site to get my act together !! Update (Sept 2017) - can't maintain the standard 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)
