Been a while. I'm still playing G/70 every Thursday in the club. I'm beating those lower than me and losing to those rated higher than me. The club has relatively few people that show up regularly and its a little disappointing. Also, if you're a member of a club you should seriously consider sending a thank you card to the TD and club officials because chess players are 1) Cheap and 2) insane. And this is based off a sample size of 11 people so I can imagine the kind of social misfits a larger club has.
(And no, I'm not saying all chess players are social misfits or insane... but I bet chess has a higher percentage than most hobbies. (I'm sure most of you out there would agree with me)
