About RJHinds

I am a former USCF member with highest over-the-board rating of 1817. I earned that rating after finishing in a 3-way tie for first in the under 1600 division at the Philadelphia World Open in 1982. At that time the USCF was giving 100 bonus rating points to the winners. I joined this site in order to get rid of the rust from not playing due to work and family restraints. I hope that I might learn to play better chess and have fun in my retirement years. I am also U. S. Postal Service and U. S. Army retired.
UPDATE: My rating after 5 months of play is 1825 at RHP. I have posted on the Spirituality Forum. I don't believe the theory of evolution, but believe in creation by God in 6 days.
UPDATE FEB 2012: I joined a chess club again after 30 years to play OTB chess. They have the room for only 2 hours, so they play 15 minute quick and 45 minute regular games. Both are quicker than I was used to playing. I'm not doing too well. I joined another chess club that plays 90 minute games but it takes me nearly 1 1/2 hours to get there.
UPDATE AUG 20, 2012: After returning to OTB chess from a 30 year break my regular rating is now 1547 from 38 games. However I did defeat a 1900+ player on my way down playing the longer time controls of G/90, d/5.

No OTB Chess since JUN 2013 due to obligation to care for handicapped wife.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1). Christians must live by faith and not by sight alone.
