I used to play chess at the Seattle Chess Club back in the 80's and 90's. Other life responsibilities sharply curtailed my OTB play since then, with my main outlet for play being the internet.
I was a certified tournament director, and a scholastic chess coach (grades K-6) for several years. The team I founded eventually competed at the State and National level after a few years. My proudest moment was when the Kindergarten Section won the National Title in 2002.
My favorite players are Capablanca, Bronstein, Fischer, Tal, and of course Morphy!
