Lunch with an opponent from the 1978 US Chess Open
I am not a particularly strong chess player: I started by winning two tournaments (no losses!) in San Diego after I graduated from college, then went to the US Open and had my clock cleaned, and more or less gave up the game except for casual games. (I really prefer Backgammon and Go.) I had the pleasure of having lunch yesterday with one of my opponents from 1978. I was playing a casual game with Marty in 1999 (when we first moved to Sedona) and recognized him as an old competitor. It is fun to catch up with old acquaintances.
