Years ago I was involved in art photography, taking lots of pictures and trying to be the best. I begun reading about the best photographers in the 20 century, Ansel Adams, Weston and many others who became my ideal. The way they did see the photo through the viewfinder, and specially the printing techniques they used just obsessed me. They were so perfect!!! And I tryed to be them instead of being myself. When I understod it will never happen, I gave up photography.
I came back to chess after many very long years of not playing, went into the net searching for sites where to play until Chess.com popped up to my eyes, became a member and started to play again.When I was 14 I used to play a lot, scholar chess, D category national tournaments and regular players. untill I played some simultaneous games against some of the top argentinian GM at that time: Najdorf, Ruben Shocron, Rosseto and others.. I realized that I am not as good as I thought so some years later I stopped to play for more than 45 years until Chess.com
At my age,I need to play because I love the game, and the effect it has on my brains, I don't want to stop. What I must stop is the obsession for The pursuit of perfection. I am ageing, but not getting old. I just want to enjoy and get the best of the game, loosing or winning, fighting for a good game but not to be GM.
I WILL NOT GIVE UP, I WILL CHALLENGE AND BE CHALLENGED
