That brings up an interesting point. Do grandmasters have a higher IQ than regular chess players? Are there any High rated chess players who have a normal IQ? I believe average noraml IQs are around 85-114.
Now where have I heard this sentiment before...?
that the best advice I ever seen and how about applying this to yourself as well
And I only had the patience to go back two weeks...
Let's also not overlook:
and the many listed links to similar subjects is a good example of just because you can do something doesn't mean you should do something.
Such just turns a nice community space into one's personal crappy diaper.

Welcome to Stalingrad (referring to the WW2 stuff 1942/43)
btw just a note: when this type of thread like the one here get pretty lame, look out here come the spammers and threadjackers and hopefully we can put the thread out of misery. (not quite the best advice though, who cares?)
Ok, let's get onto another discussion. Who was better Bugs Bunny or Daffy Duck?
eh what up doc? I'll say Bugs Bunny of course.
But while tactically Bugs was a better comedian, Daffy was widely considered a true genius, success went to his head in his later years, wildly ranting how Hollywood was out to get him, then becoming reclusive in recent years, thus depriving the world of his comic genius.
Daffy was a brilliant straight man -- I mean, look at the understated brilliance here:
and all the codes were in the carrots.
Fischer studied more AND had a higher IQ. The higher IQ would suggest that he retained information more easily, and therefore he probably learned more.
This thing about Fischer's higher IQ is repeated quite often without giving the source. This is what Frank Brady wrote in Profile of a Prodigy:
"Recently, I spoke to a professor who used to work in the Grade Advisor's Office at Eramus Hall while Bobby was a student there.
'His I.Q. was definitely in the 180s,' he said. 'Give or take a point or two. He was definitely a "high" genius, but with no interest or capacity for schoolwork.'"
It's just a question of an estimate ("give or take a point or two") given much later (after Fischer had showed that he was the best chess player in the world).
Is it agaisnt the rules so delay games?
