I joined Chess.com in 2010. I played chess since I was a kid (I am 45 now). When I joined I was barely a fair player on my best day, as I learned the rules but only the most rudimentary strategies. I got discouraged in my first few online games years ago by getting wupped in no time flat. ;) (Ditto for fast-action online shooter games.) A few years back while wondering in a bookstore I found myself buying chess strategy books I still haven't read; I figured if I get some exposure, I might just get the bug and get into it. Well, I got the bug! I love this game!
