About michael legna

I learned to play around 8 but did not play tournaments until I was 16 pushing my rating up (after 6 years in the Navy and my BS in Physics) to around 1950 USCF. My best OTB result was a second in my state amateur championship. My best single result was a draw against Samuel Reshevsky in a postal game.

I later added my Master's in Physics worked in Engineering and Research for a half dozen year before moving into computer networking, ending up as an IT Manager for a financial firm. Finally retiring from my job in the role of cyber security expert at the end of 2019.

My other interests besides chess include golf, table tennis and reading SciFi. I am also very busy both online in forums and locally with Christian apologetics and debate.
