    I'm sure there are some out there, but they are reluctant to identify
    themselves. I don't know why, as it is an accomplishment to be proud
    of. How about it! And how about a little background. Most of us
    would like to hear your story, how long you played, how you did it, any
    advise you could give, etc.

    If I lived in america I am sure I could get the 'expert' title but I dont know how much it is worth, besides sounding quite nice.

    Kind of like my position as county captain, it sounds quite important to non chess players.
