Used to Play with my Dad as a kid in grade school. Stopped playing once I hit high school. Basketball was the full time sport. University was about partying and a little learning. Then having kids was more fun. I did try to get them to play. They understand the game but other types of sports got their attention. I guess like me and basketball.
Now with them off to university I have time to play (no money but time to play). Never studied the game so now I use the tools available at this site. Openings and computer analysis. All good for now. But fun is the name of the game. I enjoy the chat during the game and will play any rank, takebacks or rated.
