    I can't be 10+ because I'm only nine. I have been playing for 7 years.

    This is kind of a loaded question for me! Since I was taught at about 8 or 9 but I gave it up shortly thereafter, I haven't really been playing in the interim. I guess I'm still an absolute beginner at 43 still having never ever won a game!

    30 years on & off- not that I'm any good, but certainly better than when I first started

    Have taught 2 of my 3 kids to play, youngest still too young

    My wife's a good player, just doesn't have the patience

    desde junio 1955, Miguel Najdorf me regalo los dos tomos de su libro "15 aspirantes al campeonato del mundo editado en 1954 y jugado en suiza en la ciudad de Zurich en el año 1953 , lo gano impecablemente Vassily Smislov . Lo autografio diciendo "a Manuel Alberto Garcia con el deseo de que algun dia llegue a Gran Maestro Internacional de Ajedrez Dicembre de 1955 firmado Moises Mendel Najdorf. Un honor realmente .Cosas que a uno lo marcan para toda la vida , ahora soy simplemente un jugador de 1ra. categoria en mi Federacion Metropolitana de Ajedrez en Argentina, pero al ajedrez lo amo profundamente y tengo ademas mente ajedrecistica para todos mis actos en la vida. saludos a todos y amen al juego ciencia, es un buen compañero en esta corta vida que tenemos .
