Hi, I'm from Minnesota! I started playing tournament chess during my freshman year of college (1988). Learned the game at age 9. I have a current USCF rating of 2054. My favorite chess player would definitely be the "Wizard from Riga" Mikhail Tal!!--Loved it when he beat Rafael Vaganian to win the World's Blitz Championship back in 1987! It's a shame that the chess world lost such a brilliant player at such a very young age of 56. I am an absolute chess finatic -- can't get enough of the game! Shall we play a game?

potsie: whiteshark, Black resigned because of the threat of Rd7 and Qh3 by White. If black tries to stop the threat by playing 22. ...Rd8, then White will play 23. e7!! and win the house! :)
