My nickname is Monty, which is a short version of my surname. My real name is Parker Montgomery. I am a Benefactor Member of the U.S. Chess Federation, which I joined in 1970. In most years since then, I have been active as a player and organizer of over-the-board chess. ... Here at SchemingMind, I am captain or former captain of eight "teams" (clubs) that have competed in SchemingMind leagues.
