About me:
Hey, welcome to my profile!

I am a beginner chess player from Lithuania with a passion for learning and improving my chess skills.
I came across Chessity while searching for a place where I could see my chess skills flourish. The hand fit the glove and here I am, playing various training games and competing with other people here. So far it's been a blast and I believe that Chessity will become the hub of 'gaming your training' and the community will only grow.
