Let me start this topic.
I learned how to play chess watching my friends playing the game in the late 1950s or in the early 1960s. I just stop playing the game because I was in the Philippine movies as character actor, dancing the ballroom dancing, playing basketball and studying.
I just resume playing chess in the late 1990s or in the early 2000s.
How about you? Thank you for posting it here.
