    I am happy you qualify yourself as rational and reasonable and any human biegn who truly posess such qualities as you claim would know that everyone is entitled to his his or her own opinion. My own opinion of you is that you are not reasonable or rational as you think you are. I can really guess your age though I have not seen you. Your mind is still in its formative stage Grow up boy.

    Let me enligthen you that No single idea is perfect. And the fact other peopls opinion does not match what you think does not mean it is bad either you just learn to see things from other peoples perspective. And to be a top chess player you have to learn to see things from your opponents perspective ask Anand, carlsen , Kasparov, Karpov they all know this important principle they might not say it openly because its one of their secret weapon.

    Has anyone derived the equation smart = money yet?

    I apologize.  Perhaps I am a bit jaded because my parents took me out of Little League and forced me to enroll in scholastic chess.

    Do you know how to evaluate sources?

    Another question, does this story cite the source of this information?  NO.

    Check out the comments section of this article for some real entertainment.

    So basically what you are saying is you believe anything and everything you read on the internet.

    This is rich. Coming from a guy that creates and edits wiki pages under multiple sockpuppet accounts.

    Richness, according to Gordon Gekko comes from family, your own business or speculation :) Chess does not seem to fall there

    Indeed.  How is what I said incompatible with the caveat I gave?

    Nope, smart does not = money. People with super high IQ's may be janitors. And people with lower IQ's can make fortunes being a doctor.

    I just suddenly had the idea of starting a forum called

         "Chess Players:  Are They Competitive in Other Areas, Too?"

    Then I started thinking about the inevitable exchanges:  "Yes, we Are!" -- "No we're Not!"  "Well, You just proved You Are!" "Well, You're just ... a Stupid-Head!  "No, I'm not -- You are!"

    -- I got enough laughs from just thinking about it, so now I don't need to start the forum.  Well, that's a time-saver. ;-)
