First of all I'm impressed with your web site and wanna wish you good luck! May be one day in the future you will be world #1.  
Also I have some questions. 1st: Is there any age restrictions for learning chess? 
2nd: How many hours do you dedicate for chess training in one day? 
3rd: Can you recommend me some chess books that will improve (learn) my chess skill?
Comment: Thanks, Enkhbat! 
1) There are no age restrictions. However, the earlier you start, the easier it is to learn & the more time you have to progress. 
2) I don't have a strict schedule. From 0 to 5 hours. 
3) Here you are:

Thought I'd peek at your page.  
When I lived in China lots of girls wanted to join the army so they could travel, and see something before marriage. Even if it was just traveling in China. Chess has allowed you to do that.  
Everyone falls in love with Flamenco music at one time or other in their lives. 
Oddly we have discussions about Russian women in our home. 
It is good you all are in the World Community (post Stalin). Six of my uncles fought in Europe during the war with Germany. All came back home.

Завидую Вам Наташа, у меня результаты так себе.
Comment: Надеюсь, зависть белая? ;-) Моя задача - совершенствоваться в шахматах самой и помогать другим, а не служить источником зависти.

I am very impressed by your achievements. Of course it would be an honor to lose a match with you. Doesn't hurt to dream, does it? I am new here and so may find answers to my questions elsewhere. I am curious as to your other interests besides chess. Continued success in all that you do.
Comment: Hi David! Thanks! Some of my hobbies are flamenco, music, photography, travelling, sports, literature and poetry, Internet...

Hi Natalia, 
I see that you were born on the same day as Bobby Fischer, March 9! Nice planning! :grin  
Did you study his games when you were younger? You both have an aggressive style of chess...
Comment: Fischer is one of my favorite chess players, so I did study his games. ;-)
