I am 73, born June 1942. FIDE rating 1768 June 2015 down from 1786 May 2015 and 1810 April 2015. Highest (2014/15) 1828. Career high BCF 190 (approx. FIDE 2040) 1969. Two games from that period are here.
I play on-line at chess.com and also use www.chessgames.com. This is a site for kibitzers to discuss chess in general, usually by reference to a POTD (Position of the Day) varying in difficulty from very easy to insane. My handle is David2009 i.e. DavidMMIX with Arabic rather than Roman numerals.
2009 is the year I started playing competitive chess on the Internet.
In 2011 I joined Montbron chess club and got my first official FIDE rating (of 1730) in 2013 once I had played sufficient games against other FIDE-rated players.
Other interests in retirement are modern physics: www.physics.britfr.com and selling our French family house
Here's a link to a challenging ending (changes daily). Enjoy!
