Dad taught me chess when I was 9. Korchnoi & Karpov played their 2nd match then, and I learned algebraic notation via their games. I didn't play actively until about age 16-17. I played a lot in Uni, then stopped until 40 when I started again on chess-com in 2012. In Jan 2016 I joined a club in Auckland, actively playing in OTB tournaments, and I'm active on Lichess4545.com, too!
