A game of chess a day

Joop is 90 years old. He lives by himself and still enjoys a game of chess every day. Against himself.

A retired plumber, Joop proudly recalls his game with a Russian chess player. His amateur chess club invited the Russian master. At one point the champion offered a tie as he underestimated Joop's skills. The event made it to a national newspaper.

Joop recently lost his wife he was married to for over 60 years. 'The game (of chess) keeps me healthy in mind and spirit', Joop says. 'It takes 3 hours a day for many years to get good at it. I love it'.
