Worth noting that in an interview not too long ago Carlsen said Nunn could have been World Champion, except that he was (is) too clever.
Nunn has nunthing to prove. Even to IM @Pfren.
It's like saying Ken Rogoff is "only a GM."
Both Nunn's (and Rogoff's) CVs impress, greatly.
Dr. Nunn is one of my favorite players.
I know! He's one of my favorites! His tactic book called "Learn Chess Tactics" is brilliant! (it's not a book for beginners at all despite the title).
his checkmate book is also good, unlike others he really put effort in his work.
no ..... to the original title question, that is.
was Ken Rogoff really a GM??
He still is, Tetsuo. The title is valid for life.
In other words, is he still alive? I suppose it's also possible that it could have been revoked, no? Sort of like Lance and his 7 theoretically lifetime Tour titles.
Actually, I bought it a couple of weeks after starting chess and my tactics greatly improved. There are many simple puzzles in there, with just a few complex ones.
What wrong with your english yzzeffyx ?
so you can't use the google tranlation ?
definitely, if the 1300 player never resigns and lasts long enough for the 2700 player to blunder big time and lose the game...it is worth the risk...so stay in the game no matter how hopeless your 1300 situation is
i dont think so
with that atitude you might as well start playing lottery
Unless Rogoff passed away in the last few days, yes. He just made news this week for a student finding holes in one of his more important economic papers: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-22223190
im a 1050 in blitz and beat a 2200 in a tournament the other day. of course this is because his connection failed...
The stipulation was that it be a game where both sides are trying to win and it be an official (USCF/FIDE) rated game.
Probably someone else already did this, but I'm not gonna read the whole thread. So I used a page which calculates winning chances from ELO numbers. The result is
This is a more optimistic result than the previously calculated 0.000125
