Started playing in July of '09 as a 68 year old ( turned 76 in May, 2017...whoopee!) attempting to fight off the deterioration of the mind, either through memory loss, or overuse, or perhaps even underuse! I have found a passion in this game...what a wonderful and beautiful mental exercise, challenging and demanding. Higher ranked players than me keep showing me the logic and power of disciplined minds and artful exercise. Thank you all!
