I am 65 years young and still learning!  My USCF rating is only 1239 but steadily increasing.  I took 1st place in the Under 1300 section that had 10 contestants.  I tied for 1st place in an Under 1600 tournament that had 23 contestants.  

I haven't "Made it to the top" yet but I have a mentor who is a National Master who amazes me with his knowledge and skill.  I am learning a lot from him.

I played in the Los Angeles Open twice and lost a game to an 8-year-old kid!  He was some kind of child prodigy who went on to win the tournament.

Chess, like love, like music, has the power to make men happy....
