Ivanchuk has been on fire lately, winning a couple of good tourneys in a row.

Too bad he is not going to the World Championships which I am pissed off about.

Is that the same range that you need to reach 2500 to be a Maximum class player?



For those who are saying stupid things, I only play at school and on internet
To sum it up, blitz is fast chess. Around 5 minutes per side, sometimes with a small time increment per move.

I played a little bit(ok very little ) when I was younger but I was utter crap. Now I have to much respect for the game to even start playing again.

Re: Chess fanatics?

I won a national championship in third grade, was 2000 when I was 11 and peaked at about 2200, but I stopped playing when I was 15. I play a little for fun occasionally on the Internet Chess Club (about 2300 blitz).

Re: Chess fanatics?

Next you are going to say you were head librarian at school as well

I don't mind the odd game of chess but prefer checkers.

Re: Chess fanatics?

My chess interest waxes and wanes. It's very sporadic. I'd play several games in a day and be all competitive and then I'd go over a year without playing.

I think I'm an ok player but if you're any good I'm just dead meat.
