CHESS !!! I'am going to tell you the chess deal of the day. If you enjoy this game, and would really like to get "very good" at playing first rate chess..First, it will take time along w/ some hard mental work, yes hard! Harder then most people are ready to put up w/.Constantly going over and over moves, games, openings, tactics and end games!! So, if you hear that a high rating(say 1900) is within your reach, take my word ---it's not.My own game is limited because a close- tight middle game is not my cup of tea. Barring a tactical move I'm open to pressure from the good players......REMEMBER!......... it's a game to entertain....... and enjoy......whatever your level of play is!
