Signs That You're A Really Good Chess Player

  • 4 years ago · Quote · #1


    You always win first place in a tournament with everyone else being a GM.

    You reach a position where you whisper to yourself, "Mate in 19."

    You are ALWAYS thinking ahead of time in chess and real life.

    Tactics is just like relaxing at the beach, because you are so experienced.

    You look up at your opponent confidently and say your rating is a 2324 FIDE Elo.

    You see a GM in a tournament that was beaten up by you.

    You are tied with Magnus Carlsen in a tournament.

    When your rating exceeds 3000

  • 4 years ago · Quote · #14


    When the major chess engine producers have you edit the move choices by their computer's programs and you still find mistakes.Then you get angry and have your own version of a chess engine, in which there is no line pruning and it still makes the best move choices, faster than any previous program.

    Some comments are implying that you are a BAD chess player; in that case, go to N2UHC.

    You are always thinking about chess even in checkers and you move your piece to capture another piece illegally.

    "Oh no!" you say when one person captures a king checker in checkers. "I lose because my king's gone!" even though you have other pieces on the board. Undecided
