So ?????? - just how many Carats does a turd have to be to get into a Jeweller's window
It has to be one special turd. A turd so awsome history will claim it as unique and powerful!
Not to mention, beautiful.
Believe it or not, chess sets have been made out of dung.
I don't believe just anyone could become a super gm. The person needs to have the commitment of devotion, extremely high relevant aptitude, strong interest in chess, and probably much more.
This is not to say you can't do it. Perhaps you have all of the important factors needed to be a super gm.

Like brains...I'm out.
Some threads are full of it, too.
A lot of people claim anything is possible. But we have to remember that because "anything" is possible does not mean "everything" is possible. Ratings are based on how much ahead of the average players are. If everyone starts being a GM, then that would just mean that the standard of being a GM would go up.
Not only is everything possible, everything is.
- I vote with all the people who say for all kinds of reasons not everyone can be a super gm
- and then it occurred to me that this game is proof positive I cannot be a super g m
- like I make dumb moves and leave players "hanging" grand masters don't
- and when it came to one part of this game I made a dumb mistake and put my rook into take by a bishop
HOWEVER - I MIGHT HAVE SOMETHING GOING BY ATTACKING WITH THE ROOK FIRST - but in the attitude of can't be a g m - - when I have a rook and queen in my attack - I WILL ALWAYS ATTACK WITH MY QUEEN FIRST - it is MY KNEE JERK reaction - attack with queen first because queen is more versatile - - however - I think a g m - would actually THINK FIRST - - and when I look at this game I think I should have otter have attacked with the rook first
AT MOVE 48 I THINK I SHOULD HAVE ATTACKED NOT WITH QUEEN BUT ATTACKED WITH ROOK FIRST
- however I won the game on time - but even now I don't know how I should have approached and stage and move my pieces for a win
- well I think a chess master would
well maybe everyone else in the world could be a super gm - well I know I can't - like that fighter pilot movie - only I don't have the right stuff
There indeed actually was a pretty cool win in there, brettregan, after White's 48th move (although it took a while for me to find it...all those check possibilities are numbing!)...
- and there you go I could never ever be a chess master because in a million years without thousands and of years of " COACHING" - I would never have found that sequence of moves AndyClifton gave me because I would have thought the first move in the winning sequence would be to take the rook sacrificing my rook - then getting a queen and then spending the rest of the game putting the opponents king in check hoping for when I can eliminate his queen with a pin
- now if I could or would have thought of Andy Cifton's sequence I might consider myself a higher class player but I didn't and I know myself - I would always think about taking that rook first
That's a lot of generations.
No they can't.
With how some people early on said that ANYBODY can be a GM then why is there only 500 GMs out of the 7 billion people on earth which is roughly 1 person out of every 14 million people on earth and in terms of being a super GM I think I read somewhere there‘s only 8 Super GMs so odds are nearly 1in a billion of becoming a super GM what I think it takes is A LOT of effort and what would help is a mental illness such as aspergus which helps memory a lot because Bobby Fischer showed signs of aspergus which would also explain his 180 IQ and Kasparov said he had a mental illness which helped him memorise chess positions which. would probably be aspergus
