So, I'm a 70 year old amateur living in Germany. I used to play in week-end tournaments in England, where we used to live. I play some e-mail chess and have just started playing over the net. my dad taught me the game when I was around eight years old. i still love it!!

   Nov-23-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
JAMESROOK: I find this system of choosing a World Champion with such a short game length unfortunate to say the least. I'm probably too old and fixed in my ways - I want a longer match and no tie-breaks.

   Sep-28-18 Nimzowitsch vs Ed. Lasker, 1910 (replies)
JAMESROOK: was among the first of my chess books: CHESS FOR FUN AND CHESS FOR BLOOD. Edward lasker gave his game against Emanuel lasker - a Ruy Lopez. Ed Lasker was black. it lasted for almost 13 hours and I think a 100 moves. It was a draw but Ed Lasker almost won this game. Great ...
