In my adult life, I found the game to be a wonderful pastime for many years, until the constraints of the profession withdrew from me the time to engage in it properly. I had the pleasure of teaching a number of children the game. I hope some of them pursued it into adulthood. The best performance I had in tournament play was in a county tournament, where I was runner-up. I had a winning position in the final game, but lost it through haste. Never hurry the game. (I have a doggone second-place trophy to remind me of this in perpetuity.) Never show mercy; never continue play in a clearly lost position, resignation is the more honorable course; and never, ever throw a game.
