At 8 bI was shown the moves of pieces whilst in hospital. At 11 I played with a friend and beat him. A few school games, the odd game at Prompt Corner and with work colleagues and relations. Not a steady player.
I have not the faintest idea. I used to regularly beat a Kent County player and came second in a chess competition at work.
No answer yet
a modest player with little theory.
Number of regular and drop-in players increasing. Shopkeepers love to play too and organise contests. Good fun. Usully only 2 setrs kept but more appeared today..
