My highest OTB rating was from 1980s when I reached 1856. This was when I was playing in a tournament every month while living in Houston, TX. After I moved from there I never got to keep in practice by playing in any tournaments so you might say I quit playing for about ten years. When I took tournament back up I didn't have that chess savy I used to have. My rating slowly dropped to 1600 where it can never go any lower because of my older higher rating. I still love to play in a tournament when I can. I did capture the C prize in the 2003 US Senior Open in Ventura, CA. My only claim to fame. Haha.
