Greetings - I have been playing chess for about 50 years. I played my first tournament around the age of 14. I played in a lot of events in Southern California through my 20-30's, finally earning a USCF National Master title in 1992. I took a number of years off from chess for career reasons and though not as active as I once was-- I still enjoy trying to broaden my understanding of this great game. I appreciate all of the great resources on Chess.com.
