What is Consider a Good Chess Rating on this Site?

  • 4 months ago · Quote · #221


    To me, a player with a rating of about 1700-1800 is good. I hover somewhere between 1500-1600 constantly and wouldn't call myself a good player, really

    depends on you experience and ambition - i allways think you should aim for 100 higher wherever you are but i play for the pleasure so good games are more important

       There's an insight that we can remember.


      BTW, I'm not any good at chess. 

       Ziryab, you have a sense of humor, strong player like you, we played them in the third round at my chess club, every expert in the first and second round we played a 1600 to 1700 player.

     If any player can reach otb expert ( 2000-2100 USCF or FIDE), he or she is a good player. That is the lowest title before master and better than A class (1800-1999 USCF). I believe most players would like to become master but it is too much work for most players.

    PG-13 would be the ideal rating on this site. But that's a bit hopeful. Mostly, I'm happy if its kept rated-R.
