|When I was in High School, my Dad made the mistake of getting me to regularly play chess against him. He won all the time. But I got interested and joined the HS team, not making much progress. One day, however, I saw The Complete Chessplayer by Fred Reinfeld in the store, and, after some major prodding by Dad, I finally purchased it. A couple chapters of learning basic tactics and I was on my way to beating him often! We didn't play much after that, of course. The fire was lit, but it wasn't until after college I really began improving by attending tournaments regularly. Among other things, I'm an avid member and Bulletin Editor of The Chicago Industrial Chess League|
