Do you play chess? Or maybe you are looking for a new partner or for someone to help sharpen your skills?

When walking around the radio station, I asked a few people if they played, all but one said no. The one person who said yes, said no to me when I asked them if they would have time to play a round or two with me to see how rusty I was.

Good for me I found a few places in the area that are welcoming new faces (especially good for me, they welcome people at all levels!) here in the Hudson Valley.

Do you play chess? How often do you get to play? Have you ever entered a tournament?
