see you on Gameknot! play chess online

I've been playing since I was about six.  I'm no expert, but I delight in teaching and encouraging beginners.  I've been lucky to have some patient teachers, especially Terry Hsu.  The book, Winning Chess: How to See Three Moves Ahead, by Irving Chernev and Fred Reinfeld changed my game forever, but Reassess Your Chess, by Jeremy Silman, still has me buffaloed.  Online, I play using the screen name kd7scx. Gameknot is a terrific site with a great interface, millions of participants, free and paid options, and a minimum of advertizing. Over the board, I am a hopeless stress (ie speed chess) addict.
