    It can't be pfren. He has at leat 75 IQ and I know a candidate master who is even worse. Also Fischer should be considered.

    Chess is a game that require a lot of study and practice. Maybe smarter people learn faster, but to be good in chess you need to put a lot of effort.

    I thought it stood for Inherent Quality.

    I was surprised to learn that Kasparov's IQ is 135. I wonder if that's the lowest IQ with the title of World Champion.

    Richard Feynman had an IQ of 125. All I would really take from this is that above 120, IQ tests seem to be just measuring how good you are at taking IQ tests.

    Yeah, and Feynman wasn't even a Candidate Master. Just too dumb for it, this Feynman-guy.

    @andy - I'm surprised you did not come up with something more clever (I was waiting). My candidate: The empty lot I own next door - I've got the title in a safety deposit box - pretty sure the IQ is real low.

    Ivanov because engines can never have a testable IQ score. So Ivanov =

    Zero IQ. Laughing

    title = EM = engine master Laughing

    On reflection, you are correct sir! A silly post for a silly thread.

    Considering we have 9 year old master(s) now, and that if they maintained their chess and intelligence to adulthood, then their IQ would be what... 50?  So I think that's a good answer.  The lowest IQ for a titled player is about 50.

    There is no lower bound. A better question is "What is the highest IQ of members coming to read this?" Which, I assume, is around 70.
