    This made me smile.

    I taught my elder son to play chess when he was about 5 years old. By the time he was 7 he could beat me regularly 🙂

    Happy Easter to you too 🙂

    • 🙂 I love chess, my father taught me too. He once survived a taxi accident in Spain and to celebrate, he bought me a beautiful chess game, but I usually play on the laptop, a free chess program that was included.
      The poem could be better perhaps.I will try and change it a bit. 🙂
