     "My parents bought me a plastic chess set when I was young and I taught myself to play from books.  I joined USCF and started playing in tournaments in high school.  I have beat a couple of experts, but never a master.  I was never a club officer or won a championship.  I stopped playing chess during my working years, but started playing OTB again after I retired."
