I am 74, born June 1942.  FIDE rating 1769 December 2016,```` 1768 June 2015 down from 1786 May 2015 and 1810 April 2015.  Highest (2014/15) 1828.  Career high BCF 190 (approx. FIDE 2040) 1969.  Two games from that period are here. My most recent grading (October 2016) is 1769.

I play on-line at chess.com and also use www.chessgames.com.  This is a site for kibitzers to discuss chess in general, usually by reference to a POTD (Position of the Day) varying in difficulty from very easy to insane.  My handle is David2009 i.e. DavidMMIX with Arabic rather than Roman numerals.

2009 is the year I started playing competitive chess on the Internet.

In 2011 I joined Montbron chess club and got my first official FIDE rating (of 1730) in 2013 once I had played sufficient games against other FIDE-rated players. FIDE player card


Other interests in retirement are modern physics: www.physics.britfr.com and selling our French family house

Here's a link to a challenging ending (changes daily).  Enjoy!
