It is my husband who actually did indeed win several chess trophies in high school. He's fairly good with the calm, calculated moves. But I can give him a run "for his money" sometimes. It happens so rarely though and basically, to beat him, I have to take some risks. But I know, that's not advisable in this wonderful game I love so much. Just comes naturally to me. I don't know why!
