Hello, I’m John Selfgene. I was born in 1870, I’m 29 years old. I’m not a famous person. I just love studying chess and I studied all the games until 1899. I’m still practicing, but if you want to see how we play chess in 1899, challenge me!
We were curios. How would an average chess person play in 1899?
Then we created. John Selfgene, a fictional chess player from 1899, saw the bests; Steinitz, Lasker, Anderssen, Blackburne and many others.
Ready to play. John used to play chess in chess cafes or clubs in London, back in 1890s. Now he’s here, ready to play against you, ready to show his skills.
