I used to play OTB tourneys regularly back in the 80's & 90's at the Seattle Chess Club. I also directed tournaments.
I have not played OTB events regularly for at least 20 years, but I still read many books and play online chess very often.
Back in the day, I coached a scholastic chess team (grades K-6) that won state titles. The team also won a National title in the K section.
My favorite players are Morphy, Tal, and Capablanca.
