Hey guys, I realize that with the extreme low level that this thread has drooped to, I'm opening myself up to your insults, but here is an interesting article I came across that is related to some of the things said previously...
- I'm a beginner at chess, have no "FIDE" rating and low ratings here. Interestingly, I have a higher than average IQ despite my relativley low chess ability - This article very briefly discusses some science behind the link between intelligence and chess ability.
I never thought that there could be a case on Chess.com where I'd find myself embarrassed to be Canadian lol.. But I guess there's a first time for everything!
Don't think so, is not your fault. If so, I would find myself embarrassed to be Spanish every time I go outside!
Can't pay the rent or buy a meal with an Internet rating.
You guys went to far with the expert. You scared him away. I hope no one reported him, i miss it already. Finally someone around here with a little intellect and who knows how to entertain some people.
I'm eager to read the article. can you post the link of it ?
oops.. Here it is...
Dear blastforme: You don't need to be ashamed. It was just one Canadian, not you or anyone else. And here, you can't even tell with 100% accuracy that who is who and where he resides. Regarding the article, yes, IQ does not correlate directly with chess ability. I have myself found some people with high IQs who suck at chess. Cheers!
I am otb expert and my highest rating being at 2110 uscf, to put chess players down for there low blitz and bullet is ridiculous and especially kids. MuhammadAreez10 and Ssakash are just kids and no adults should be insulting and name calling children. Canadian bacon (canadian_expert 1830) so call expert get a life, you are not that great. You lost your queen you duffer in the opening, bullet is not real chess just pushing wood around. I wonder if 1830 is the year you were born. BTW canadian bacon, you NEVER mention your otb rating.
I mean the whole post is BS, as some players are good at quick chess and others are not. I suck at blitz and bullet and thus my blitz and bullet ratings are 1600ish on here (my blitz is at an all-time high- it is usually in the high 1400s or low 1500s). My OTB rating is 1811.
This is canadian bacon (so call expert) great game, you lose your queen in the opening in a five minute blitz game. Very sad display in chess skills.
Canadian bacon, you don't know how to play against the King's Indian Attack and you played a horrible opening.
Yeah, that opening was really weak. The opponent was far ahead in development. I think it's time to change your name to Canadian noob. I don't think any experts will make such mistakes. Correct your own mistakes before criticizing about others
lol this is getting funny :D
