a long way from being a grandmaster

Well, it appears to be that time of the year when all of the year-in-review stuff starts to come out. Yesterday, I shared with you my music year-in-review. Today, let me share with you my chess year-in-review.

Yes chess!

I played a lot of chess when I was in high school. I was even in the chess club. Yes I was a geek. But I was also a jock and a scholar. I tell people i was a non-affiliated teen. I had friends in all of the tribes. I had my geek friends who I played chess and dungeons and dragons with and collected comics and stamps. I had my jock friends who I played football, basketball, wrestling, and track and field with. I was also on the rifle team. I had my brainiac friends who took their studies seriously. I graduated number two in my high school. While I did have lots of friends in all of these groups, I was quite the lone wolf. I walked among them, but was not one of them. To the people who knew me, I was “a riddle wrapped in mystery inside an enigma” (Winston Churchill said that).

After high school, I continued to play chess, but not that often. Until finally, I didn’t play at all. I got back into when I joined in 2011. I played for bit and then stopped again. But this year, I started playing again. Not a whole lot, but enough. Oh, if you do fancy a game, use this link to connect with me on (I’m soulcruzer there as well if you just want to look me up).

Alright, so here are my chess stats for 2022.

I know 19 games isn’t a heck of whole lot, but it’s better than zero. I hope to play even more next year. I do have a chess game in VR which is pretty neat, so that will encourage to play more.

Again, if you want to play, here’s the my link.
