Chess: It begins
Well I am a 34 year old single dad who knows very little about chess. Though I have always been intrigued by it and always wanted to learn. So I figured it was about time to begin. I also am some what of a writer hoping to get my first book published by early next year. So I look at this as a learning opportunity as well as a fun relaxing escape from my work and busy life. I plan on cataloging my experience as I learn to play this age old game called chess.
What I know; well very little. I know what the pieces are called and how they are allowed to move, but beyond that I don't know much. I love the idea of the game, the strategy and the mental preparation prior to each move, that is what I hope to gain as I start my study of the game of Chess.
So, with that let the games begin.
