Alright, thank you for the clarification David. For the record, what is "standard"? I usually play 10 or 15 min games.
Bullet rating - For games under 3 minutes.
Blitz rating - For games of 3 minutes to 14 minutes.
Standard rating - For games 15 minutes and longer.
For details, look here: http://support.chess.com/Knowledgebase/Article/View/94/0/why-are-there-three-different-ratings-in-live-chess
David, I appreciate you answeing my question, as well as posting a link. That cleared it up for me.
Great, so I don't have to start at 0!
people are grandmasters at 2400 + thats why we have ratings or we would all be grandmasters.You can play unrated games if you want this means that your rating will not go up or down.Blitz games are for people who prefer to play fast, standard is 30 minutes these games usually result in a checkmate.
2400 is a bit low for a GM.
yes but u hav i no a gm hu got 4/6 in a tourny he lost 2 a 1750 and 1810 and he was one of the highest seeds
Can you solve this puzzle? (It's kind of tricky, but you can do it if you try hard!)
Can't Black just promote the pawn to a queen, or did I miss something obvious...?
and in the end black can just take the queen
why would black promote to a knight
That was not a chess puzzle. Black can never have 11 pawns in a chess game.
