Marcelo Bruno
Member since Jun-25-06
I live in Brasília, Brazil's federative capital, where I work at a public school. Music and chess are some of my greatest loves, although I like each field of the knowledge. My interest is to get more and more old chess games (I mean old until the earliest beginning of the 20th cenury); I use to play in the same style of the players from this period and consider that their games are my main source of inspiration. I also have experience on giving chess classes at schools in Brasília. Full Member
