It’s been a good few day’s worth of chess in the evenings. Last night spent a bunch of time talking chess basics with a fellow in Kansas, who was very happy for the information on strategy, openings, etc. I always enjoy getting a chance to review what I’ve learned so far by teaching.
And as of today I’m up another 8 points, to a personal best of 1133. At this rate, I might be an average player in a matter of a month or so! (heh). Seriously though, it feels great to be getting closer and closer to USCF Class D. I can’t wait to see if any of the Windsongers are into chess, and if so to what degree and at what level. It would be great to be able to work on things there. I love playing online, but nothing beats a face to face game.
