Just wondering how long have you guys been playing chess? blink.gif

I learned when I was little but never really played.

Started playing a bit more freshman year in person and with whatever people I could. Started playing online about 4 years ago on Zone.com, still don't really play that much today. Then this tourney popped up and I thought "heck, why not? tongue.gif "

Just wondering how long have you guys been playing chess?  


I really only started playing in the school chess club when I was 12, was in that for 6 years. Nadn't played since I was 18 when I took part in the first tournment. But its all about looking at the board and remembering moves, so it only takes a few games to work of the rust.
