How long have you been playing Chess?

I have been playing chess since school days and was given a lovely chess set when I left 7th Grade in the States. Now, that's a long time ago and up until I started this chess club I only played socially with a couple of ex university chums. Now we have been eating, playing and making friends since November 2010 - what a great time we have had!

Would you descibe yourself as a novice, a mere mortal or a turbo player??

"Mere mortal" and find my dummies guide to openings really helpful! I do a daily puzzle on Shredder or Chess.com for inspiration and am happy to leave Kasparov's guide to being a Grand Master on the bookshelf.

Do tell us more about yourself, what part of town you live in, interests, dietary requirements etc....

I have lived in Wimbledon for the last 20 years. Music, art and literature feed the soul and I ski in winter, play golf and work out in a gym. Jane teaches in a pre-prep school and I am a partner in a West End firm of surveyors.
