Dad taught me the game in 1973 (lived in DC-Chevy Chase then) and played games with neighborhood friends; Chess became somewhat of a fad, back then, cuz Bobby Fischer had just became the new American hero. After move to NoVa in 1978, stopped playing 1) cuz none of my new friends played, 2) no chess club at school, and 3) discovered that girls were more fun. Just got back into the game 2 years ago to keep ahead of daughter, who now competes in scholastic tournaments.
Longtime DC metro resident just looking for OTB games.
