That's his positive score against Anand, not his IQ.
Chess is related to IQ
Not even remotely true.
highest in the world is IQ300 omg!!
mine is 135
Does it really matter you all cant even beat a 1500 i presume
Guys this is DUMB Albert Einstein's IQ was around 65 100+ is superhuman
Here is a link to the doctoral dissertation of Roy Roring submitted in 2008.
Interesting observations , including one that some chess masters have IQs lower than the general population. Pages 4 - 7 discuss IQ and chess.
Kasparov's IQ is given as 123 at the peak of his career.
Review of Expert Chess Performance
Gary Kasparov 190 ? Please.... The man is good in chess but not too many other things.
fuzzbug: Great link! Thanks.
i dont thinkit matters how much iq u have what matters is how deep u can think
I have played against retards and they aren't any worse than regular people who don't study the game. Both groups are quite trivial. Here's a game I played against someone who is boarderline retarded:
Whereas this game as white was against someone at least average:
and when i go and make jokes about carlsen anand matches, you just tell me i'm a patzer and need to learn chess first to appreciate these fine battles
So, you can find it on the net:
Garry Kasparov: 190
Bobby Fischer: 167
Judith Polgar: 170
Robert Byrne: 170
But Carlsen, should we guess, would be around 180-190
Fischer = 186
