This is Dr. Pozen's first visit to the Boylston Chess Club.
He insists that in this chess venue, we call him: "Bob" . . .
The BCC Senior Sunday Open is Bob's first chess tournament.
Bob intends to learn chess the same way as he has learned and
understands the dynamics of the legal profession
and investment banking industry. Bob will, no doubt
discover similarities in the logic and strategies of "winning"
between law, economics/finance and chess . . . engaging his mind in
neurotechnosynthetic cogitation. Bravo, Bob, welcome to the BCC,
and the world of global strategic chess theory and application
and the development of network inter-connectedness.
