    The example of Eugenio Torre may be exceptional, but it proves that age does not have to have the final word on a persons abilities. So, hurray for Eugenio!

    It's borderline to the topic, but I'd like to mention that 64 y.o. Eugenio Torre from Philippines just won a bronze medal for the 3rd board at the Olympiad after scoring 10/11 (he played all the games !) against 2453 opposition. That's a 2836 performance !!

    Wow ... that's an *amazing* performance!

    I played chess in middle school at our school club but never knew about tournaments. I played my first tournament game when I was 22 years old in 2011. I was unable to play any games in 2014 due to where I lived. The majority of my games are played once a week at the local chess center. My peak rating is 1739 and my current rating is 1680. My goal is to hit 2000 (Expert) by my 30th birthday in 2019.
