I've been playing chess for 40 years. My best achievement was first runner-up for the Lake / Sumter College championship (Leesburg, Fl.). I was playing for the championship, up by a bishop, and fell for a trap. I am over it now. I no longer sleep under bridges drinking cheap wine. I enjoy reading, cooking, computers, single malt scotch, beer brewing, the occasional cigar,Louisville Cardinals and Miami Dolphins. I own eleven guitars. Luv dem blues. "Woke up dis mornin’, Someone done taken my rook......" My professional bio is at timrox.com, and my bar is called "The Lyndon Pub". Oh, and I have a tendency to play one of the Colle systems when in white.
