the 65th Square

  • International 
  • Formed: Jul 5, 2013
  • Why play chess? is a question I have been asking myself (especially when I am getting shellacked!). Although it's often hard to forget about the win/lose aspect and simply play to learn and resolve puzzling situations, this is where the greatest joy comes for me. As one friend says, "chess is art." Certainly it allows for creativity! The 65th square is designed to be a club, a forum, a tournament site, and somewhere to share whatever it is you have to share (presumably related to chess in some way). It could be not unlike the 19th hole on a golf course, where members share their victories and analyze their defeats with comrades. Thanks for the input and support from hope2joy and SavyNL to get this started.

  • A very warm and happy Christmas and holiday season to everyone. My father passed away this month. He was 95 and lived a rich and fulfilling life. Today would have been his 71st wedding anniversary--the family always celebratedwith a gala Christmas Eve party, so I will be remembering him and my mom tonight for sure. I will try and set up some matches for our illustrious group of superb players for next year. Meantime, enjoy and may you play some exciting games. Steve Waldhorn
