Do you remember when you first started chess?
I do it was in 1998 and I was sporting an 1149 rating for about 1month before taking down the IL Class Championship D/E class with a perfect score and perfect bliss. I thought I was finding best moves but in reality best blunders. I found this game in the Jan issue of the IL bulletin (state magazine, was my 'chess life.') with the caption Young Blackman survived a couple dubious positions on his way to 4-0 victory. well enjoy youthful chess and share your first if you like. I would love to see the games.
