Do you enjoy playing chess socially? Or are you interested mostly in serious games & rated tournaments? Or both?

Both are fun. I will need to practice and study a bit before I will confidently feel that I possess enough mental stamina for a serious tournament game, but in my youth, I enjoyed the thrill of conquering players face to face in rated tournaments far more than the throwaway, flippant blitz games I play online.

What is your USCF or FIDE rating if you have one?

Approx. 1150

Do you know any places that would be good for holding meetups?

I operate the Bible Emporium. It has a peaceful atmosphere, a small cafe and a good location in downtown North Miami, near I-95. We are working to make sure that the store will have adequate tables and other resources for players who want to come and play a game. In time, if all goes well, we may be able to hold rated tournaments.


I recently made the North Miami Chess club an official USCF chess club. I now have a TD license and will run tournaments in the summer.

What David B. is saying about this Meetup Group

Excellent group of people. Lots of fun. I look forward to more meetings.
