Hello All ! First of all I want to thank everyone who congratulated me on my win, and also who pictured me as a "psycho-killer" (I like this a lot as a new nick of mine on playchess

Briefly introducing myself, my name is Eros Riccio, I am 30 years old, I live in Italy, in Lucca. I started playing over the board chess at the age of 14, and now and then I still enjoy playing some "otb" tournaments, my current fide rating is 2203. Anyway, my favourite forms of chess are engine chess and correspondence chess. In the Playchess engine room you can find me with the nicks Auryn, Great Ozzie, and Ultima. With this "last" nick (Ultima in Italian means last one) I played the 8th Freestyle, and as a paradox, I was first with it.

I'm weak on the board but I think I can say I'm a "computer chess specialist and experienced Freestyler" (as Arno Nickel wrote in his report).
