John not only plays whenever he can (he has already played 36 graded games this season), but he also captains Cambridgeshire's Under 100 team.
John is a prime example of how playing chess can keep your brain active and alert. Always ready to give a quick and witty response, I asked him recently when his birthday was; he immediately replied 31st April. He did relent, however, and reluctantly told me it was actually the 11th.
We all hope you keep playing and enjoying chess for many more years.
