I am just beginning to learn chess...at this great age. It seems harder to learn than when I was younger. We'll see! I am looking for challengers approximately in my rank...for now. I'm also hoping to improve recent memory loss...they say chess is good for that!
Sept. 2011: After my ups and downs with the rating (one big one in particular where I dropped 250 points), I've joined 5 under 1000 or 1200 point groups and I think I'll begin learning a lot more.... -Linda
