Welcome To My Website!

I am przemm82 and I am addicted to chess :-). I was 36 years old in August 2018 when I decided to start a difficult but interesting journey and take a deep dive into the chess world. The question that I wanted answered was: can a person at my age achieve anything in chess or maybe it is already too late? I learnt chess rules when I was a small kid – years ago – and since then played couple of games a year, just for fun, with my older brother. What’s my main goal? It is obvious that I will not become a grandmaster, not even an international master. If I could however reach 2000 national rating (not necessarily FIDE), that would be great. Then I will probably set up a new goal!
