For instance, I performed very badly in the West of England under-15s and only ever came runner-up in the North Gloucestershire under-18s. </li><li>I played in the local adult league (<a name="W6812W"></a><A HREF = "http://www.gloucesterchess.co.uk/" TARGET = "_top">North Gloucestershire Chess League</A>) while at school and my grade meandered up to 158, if I remember correctly. The school (Crypt GS, Gloucester) then had a strong team and we got to the latter stages of the <em>Sunday Times</em> competition most years, losing to big hitters such as Winchester College, <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_851_4">King Edwards Birmingham</A></U><SUB>4</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_851_4"></A> and a long telephone match against Methodist College Belfast. </li><li>While at school, I played on a low board for Gloucestershire <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_851_5">seniors</A></U><SUB>5</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_851_5"></A> and captained the Gloucestershire juniors, though <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_851_6">not from top board</A></U><SUB>6</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_851_6"></A>. I played in a number of congresses at school and <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_851_7">immediately after university</A></U><SUB>7</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_851_7"></A>, with mixed results. </li><li>I mention all this  not because it is the least bit impressive  but because it was important for the development of my confidence and self-esteem, as it all happened so quickly and without effort. Which, of course, was the problem. To succeed in any popular endeavour you need not just a bit of talent, but the will and focus to let that talent reach its full potential. </li><li>Anyway, I effectively gave the game up and switched to <a name="1"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_9/Notes_975.htm">bridge</A><SUP>8</SUP> at Cambridge, playing chess on only three occasions for the <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_851_9">King s</A></U><SUB>9</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_851_9"></A> team. </li><li>Since then I ve played in the <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_851_10">occasional rapid play</A></U><SUB>10</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_851_10"></A> at the behest of my brother-in-law, who used to organise them. I also played against Ray Keene in a simul organised by <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_851_11">HSBC</A></U><SUB>11</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_851_11"></A>. </li><li>My trouble with chess was, I think, that I had a natural ability to calculate variations which stood me in good stead against players who knew next to no theory  but against stronger players I never got into positions where calculation did more than tell me I was losing. I only ever used to play matches, never practice games, and have never actually read a chess book beyond the first few pages. </li><li>So, I don't want a repetition of any of that. If I return to the game, I'd like to learn to play properly. The question is how? I have a collection of (mostly old) books, but I've never been a keen reader of chess books  I can't easily envisage what's going on without either a lot of effort or setting the position up on the board. </li><li>I suspected some chess software might be the best way forward  what I need is something that's fairly interactive and which will get me to learn both the principles of positional play and some opening theory, as well as play some practise games, in as painless a manner as possible. After advice from <em>The London Chess Centre</em> (follow <a name="W227W"></a><A HREF = "http://shop.chess.co.uk/" TARGET = "_top">Link</A>), I purchased some software, as below. Unfortunately, the plan to make use of it hasn t come to much. </li><li>A recent idea was to learn to play blindfold chess, and I started reading a <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_851_12">book</A></U><SUB>12</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_851_12"></A>, but that hasn t come to much either. </li><li>An incentive to return to the game is that my brother-in-law runs a team in the Middlesex and London Leagues and he s keen for me to play, though doing so would involve rather a slog in travelling back and forth. </li><li>Also, one of my bridge partners is also thinking of returning to Chess, having been of a similar standard to me, though having played more recently. </li><li>The chess scene in Billericay seems somewhat <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_851_13">unexciting</A></U><SUB>13</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_851_13"></A>. </li><li>Follow these links for various websites associated with the local chess scene: <a name="W229W"></a><A HREF = "http://www.essexchess.org.uk/" TARGET = "_top">Essex Chess</A>, <a name="W6774W"></a><A HREF = "http://www.necl.org.uk/" TARGET = "_top">North Essex Chess League</A>, <a name="W6775W"></a><A HREF = "http://southendchess.awardspace.biz/" TARGET = "_top">Southend & District Chess League</A> and <a name="W228W"></a><A HREF = "http://www.billericaychessclub.org.uk/index.html" TARGET = "_top">Billericay Chess Club</A>. </li></ul><BR><!-- FUNCTOR_ID=08 --> <B><U>Summary of Progress during 17Q4 - 18Q3</B></U><ol type="1"><li>I have spent 21 hours YTD on this Project, or related work, where for "YTD" - Year to Date - I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2017).
