    Hey David, do you still have room in your car? I live in NoVa and it seems more convenient for me to ride from Vienna...

    hi...i would start with a low option open in which the play would go in familar grounds...then from their you work out middle game plan and the end end generally works itself out...nothing hard but you find more enjoyment on building on your knowledge of the game..i do this with the computers .

    The Washington, D.C. Chess Meetup

    i thought of an idea that for the most people dont have a game plan in mind...if they would like to get just the open and practice that when they come that would be the game plan for them to get better, like learning a language...noth­ing hard,i could pick several openings for the to chose from,thereby elevating the experince and hopefully joy of getting better.....just­ a thought
