I played chess as a child, and mostly lost. I got interested again when my teenage daughter got very keen on chess and we went to various local tournaments. Some had sections that not-very-good-adults could enter, so I got some experience of more serious games. However, these were mostly rapid-play tournaments with 30 minutes on the clocks. I have played only a handful of games in the last ten years, but was persuaded (again by my daughter) to try Scheming Mind. Correspondence chess is a new experience, and the tactics that got me through the "bare knuckle" rapid-play games don't work so well!
