When did you first start to play chess?

I learned to play chess at the age of 5 but only started playing with any seriousness at about 12.

What is your grading or what is your level.

Currently 152 ECF

Which part of London do live? and which part do you work in?

I live in Penge and work from home.

Some members like to play online. What site do you use, what is your screen name and about what times will members likely to find you? under anarchos61


I have played chess for many years with the occasional lengthy break from competitive play. I am a former manager of supported housing services and I now concentrate on writing and music promotion.

What Mark J. is saying about this Meetup Group

A friendly and informal group ideal for players who are just beginning or for occasional players seeking new opponents. The standard of play overall is currently quite low but there are a few players up to strongish club level who get down. I am currently organising a simultaneous display featuring International Master Thomas Rendle so watch out for details if you fancy pitting your wits against a real chess master.
