First Time


So, here I am.  My first blog at, so I guess I'll tell a little about myself.  I'm an awful chess player, but that doesn't stop me from trying to play.  When I was about 10 I got really into chess for about three years, but then stopped since I didn't have anyone to play with.  I played my first complete game against a human opponent in 9 years yesterday. 


I think I'm largely getting back into chess because now I have a wife and we are thinking about kids.  I want my children to have the best upbringing possible, and I think chess (and go, which I'm also terrible at) are some of the best tools for developing the minds of young people.
