My name is Tony, I have played chess for around 20 years and I'm 28 years of age. I run Leeds Chess Club www.leedschessclub.org and I compete in chess tournaments all over Yorkshire. I love to play and study chess, my favourite chess books are Think Like A Grandmaster and My System. I have a current English Chess Rating of 131 Ecf and I don't currently have a FIDE rating, there aren't many FIDE rated competitions in England so it is quite difficult, I hope to gain a FIDE rating in the future, when I can afford to travel more.
