Back in the day, and a strange day it was, I was ranked in the top 1% of the country.  With a renewed membership fee, I could probably make some quick cash in a tournament before people that still play in every weekend tournament recognized me.

Speed Chess was called skittles games back then.  Probably still is. I remember those that were better than me would play for quarters here.  Inflation has set in, and I’m sure it’s dollars by now.

Would be interesting to take your wife or girlfriend, or, you can take mine for that matter 😉 for a nice long walk on the beach, and ‘accidentally’ come upon a game, and take it down for a lot of cash. All you have to do, is sac the first game. If you can afford that, you’re golden.
