I think hyper-gamma is mentally disturbed.
You have to be able to tuck the pencil behind your ear too..
Don't overlook that skill.. lol
Hmmm....maybe he wants a group hug.
Yeh.. Come here Gamma, let me give you a hug!
Yikes..what if you have no ear to tuck a pencil behind? it's a worry, hyper-gamma....
Ear?....that's all that will be left. Great one uwinagain!
I don't think Gamma's ear would have a pencil behind it though! lol
It's not like we really think hyper-gamma gives a stuff about his pencil. Behave. Least he has a pencil?
He must have....eunichs have great chess ratings.
Yes but they often miss the point! lol
...which is lucky...'cos some people can't actually make a point.
I have read that Vishy Anand has an IQ of 97, but I could find any ready references now; so I do not know how far that is true. One does not need to be a genius to play well at chess; chess is one game usually starting from the same position over and over again, where you can use opening preparations and pattern memorizations to terrific advantage. It need not be that your chess skills display your IQ.However, in general, it is believed and research indicates that top grandmasters usually have very high IQs. A person with average IQ is expected to reach a maximum rating of about 2000 in chess. Strong grandmasters with a rating of around and over 2600 are expected to have an IQ of 160 plus. The strongest grandmasters of the day with their ratings hovering around 2800 are expected to have IQs around 180.
My IQ has sunk about 45-50 points but yet sometimes I can solve chess problems that the very strongest chess engines cannot solve.
Methinks there is a small correlation between IQ and chess? [can there be a small correlation?]
The strongest grandmasters of the day with their ratings hovering around 2800 are expected to have IQs around 180.
Don't kid yourself with these speculations. If I was in Top 10 or a Super GM I'd be willing to take a test and demonstrate my inhuman IQ (Feynam's documented IQ is just 123). They're good at chess, not at raven matrices.
