‘Katushakkia’ means Street Chess in Finnish.

Chess is the best game in he World. However,  there are a lot of misconceptions about the game that I want to change. Anyone can learn how to play better chess and chess suits everyone.

From these thoughts I started this blog. My goal is to write understandably and interestingly about chess. I emphasize that chess is a fighting game.

I’m Mika Leminen, the writer of this blog. I’ve played chess since I was a kid and the game is my passion. I want to develop as a chess player, as a thinker and as a writer.
