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.

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.

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).

I play chess. Used to be quite good at it, but probably not good enough to beat you ExcaliburII if you are profesional player

I used to play in club tournaments up till 2000 but now only play blitz (5 minute games) and occasionally rapid games. (25 minute) I still follow chess news and yes, Vassily Ivanchuk rules.

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.

Whats that blitz you are all talking about guys?

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.

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.
