Tom Green's Chess Highlights

I learned how to play chess in the fourth grade and, as a fifth grader, purchased an ivory chess set (65KB gif) with my hard earned money. I didn't join the U.S. Chess Federation until after college during the Fischer boom of the early 1970s. I'm a Master correspondence player, a Class A over-the-board and action chess player. As a certified local tournament director, I organized a couple of rated tournaments each year, the Ides of March Mini-Swiss and Trick or Treat Mini-Swiss, publish two newsletters a year.  I also organized the Ohio Collegiate Chess Championship. "The Chessboard of Life", a poem published in the Ohio Chess Bulletin (July 2004, p. 5), expresses the importance of chess in my life.
