GM = Grandmother
The title actually refers to your moves in chess games:
CM = Crappy Moves
NM = Negligent Moves
FM = Foolish Moves
IM = Immature Moves
GM = Good Moves.
Awesome!!!!!! that was probably the best of them all.
CM = Cantankerous mover
NM = Nebulous Mover
FM = Fastidious Mover
IM = Inspired Mover
GM = Glowing Mover
also not bad
WGM=World Grande Meat
How to be FM or CM in LiveChess?
Have a real life chess title, either CM, FM, IM or GM.
What do u mean, secretofMana?
If you see people with CM, FM, IM or GM before their username, it means that they have a real life chess title, Candidate Master, FIDE Master, International Master or Grandmaster respectively.For example. If Garry Kasparov would create an account on this site, and proves that he is indeed Garry Kasparov, the title GM would be assigned to him by the chess.com staff.
many thanks Mana
