Something's ailing me. I'm not playing well after coming out of my semi-retirement. Nevertheless I've not completely lost my chess marbles as evidenced by the following beauty that I played in the first round of the Marshall Masters against the amiable Oliver Chernin:
A friendly game in a friendly club & I was surprised at how nice everybody is at what I'd call my second home since as a child I played there every week. I'm not playing particularly well right now but chess is one thing with which I can escape the harsh reality for awhile. Hopefully things will get better - the future will tell us.
