Hey my name is Mark and I'm a 27 year old Australian. I've been playing chess for 7 years. Been playing video games since I was born. It is my hope that you'll find my chess stream both educational ***and*** entertaining. I also play some other games like PUBG and CS:GO. If you enjoy hanging out **follow** to join the ***Sour Snatch Kids***, and if you **really** love the stream, **subscribe** to join the ***Snatchlings***, m8. My username is **SnatchPato** on [chess.com](https://www.chess.com/member/SnatchPato?ref_id=5101493)
###Do you have a community hangout? Sure do! Come join our [Discord Channel](https://discord.gg/U6t7MWZ)! ###Where are you from? I'm a true blue Aussie (Australian), not a Kiwi (someone from New Zealand), even though the accents are similar! ###Can I be a mod? To become a mod you must demonstrate commitment to the stream. This means being active in the chat, answering questions from new viewers and generally interacting with the chat. If you fulfil these requirements and have been an active Sour Snatch Kid for at least 2 weeks send me a message outlining ***why you would make a good Moderator*** and we will sort it out. ###What websites do you play on? [chess.com](http://www.chess.com?ref_id=5101493). ###Can I play you? It really depends on the stream, however if it is a stream where I'm accepting challenges click this [link](https://www.chess.com/live#challenge=5m5s%7Cchess&member=snatchpato?ref_id=5101493) to offer a challenge! ###What websites do you play on?

###1. [Hutch](http://www.twitch.tv/hutch) Hutch raided me on Monday 16/02/15. It was such an amazing experience, and all his raiders were so supportive. Thanks for the exposure Hutch, I genuinely appreciate it! ###2. [ChessNetwork](http://www.twitch.tv/chessnetwork) Jerry has given me some quality advice about streaming and has always taken the time to help his viewers (even if it's not me). He's a huge inspiration and role model, and I want to thank him for laying the groundwork for all aspiring chess streamers. I consider Jerry to be the epitome of chess entertainment. ###3. [Eric Hansen](http://www.twitch.tv/chessbrah) GM Eric Hansen is the leader of the chessbrah's and is simply a super nice guy. He's always made time for me and been very welcoming from simply saying hey when I'm in his stream, through to hosting me for hundreds of viewers. He's a great role model, and a fantastic chess player to boot. Definitely a channel worth supporting!
