I used to work with a Russian guy who would win local tournaments on the weekends...

During lunch, I'd play him and always get my butt kicked...But I loved playing because I knew how much I'd learn from him..

Eventually, I won a game here and there and that improved steadily...after awhile, it was 50/50 as to who would win, which made him more competative...It became very intense, and I thank him for the patience he had with me in the beginning...

This is "sorta" like a metaphor...You've heard the phrase, "Smart people surround themselves with smarter people"...That's how I like it...

If you're the best at something, there is no learning curve for you to progress...so I drift towards people that I can learn from...

Yeah, I play...

I used to really be into it but haven't played in quite while. I used to play at...oh, I can't remember the site...that's how long it's been.

I even bought a couple of books to help me improve. I got an electronic game...a computer game...& a playstation game. Not even sure where all that stuff is now.

you can play against people or computers, you can also chat. you can downloaded interfaces so you can chat with other players (and they're not nerds, actually,. Many are heavily into politics)

I'm an avid chessplayer, and am not ashamed to admit it. I am sure Galen will come down here and tell me I am a lonely, overweight mama's boy...but I dont care!

If anyone wants to play anytime, just hit me up with a PM.
