Thanks for the read and comment . . .

It seems to me when you get older you lose different abilities . . .

I'm not giving up just yet . . .

Another attack of 'dropsy' and I have dropped down again into a respectable 1400 level.

Id love to be as high rated as you! . . .

Denver, you need some good stuff to play chess better. I recommend this stuff.

@ bong711

Thanks for the suggestion

We also made essence of coffee to add to hot milk for the adults . . .

July 20, Monday a.m. I won another game playing for State of Colorado group in first division . . .

I went up 5 to 1380 . . . So far so good! . . .

I'm trying not to make obvious blunders . . .

Looking at more variations . . .

And sometimes not making the best move but the second best . . .

You need to castle as soon as you're able to. . . 

Develop the knights and bishops . . .

You will last longer . . .

Don't lose on time . . .

Thanks Phillip

It's a slow process for me . . . Don't know if I'm doing it right! . . .

Study simple mates and tactics and basic end games for progress at our level of play. Grand masters have eidetic memories of chess positions and spend long hours daily learning more. I don't understand what they are doing or trying to do most of the time.

I am gaining some real benefit from the chess.com lessons and encourage inexperienced players to take a good look at them.

I also took your advice and am taking chess.com lessons . . .

August 1st. Saturday p.m. . .

I won another game. One of the worst I've played  . . .

Worst accuracy analysis points ever for both of us . . .

But it's a win . . . Went up 11 rating points from 1380 to 1391 . . .

Knocking on the 1400 door . . .

Here hoping i keep winning . . .

Got six games I'm playing in group matches . . .

I need a drink . . .

@ TinkleDink  &  @ 52yrral

Thanks for the read & Comments i appreciate them . . .

I have six games currently and have signed up in two group tournaments . . .

That should add about 20 games . . .

One in house tournament is pending in one of my groups . . .

You sir, are quite welcome. We await your tales of battles fought and victories won!

My current amount of games are a bakers dozen . . . 

I wonder if young members know what that is . . .

More are coming . . .

Just yesterday one of my nine bowling balls cracked in half because i left them in my

car and the high summer heat did it . . . 

I'm not going to replace it because the bowling lanes are still closed nd some are closing forever . . .

                                  

            
                      Bobby Fischer always bowled during matches in whichever country he was in! . . .

                                                         Here he is going for the ten pin ! . . .
