I've been playing since I was a youngster... dropped it for awhile and then started playing again when I got a bit older. I first learned by reading Bobby Fischer and moving the pieces around the board. Since the internet it's now a lot easier to find a game. I'm a regular on chess.com, I also play alot on a nice friendly site, papaschess.com. I'm always willing to chat and enjoy meeting new people.
