    my knowledge of chess exceeds my actual strength. Thats why my goals arent to become the world's best (IM is my playing strength goal) but to become a commentator/teacher

    Whatever the field, respected teachers have achieved something in the field they're teaching.

    I suspect that's why they're respected.

    That's the problem with those objective measures, like Elo rating.  They don't take into account the player's intent, nor his self-charcterization. Subjective, self-defined measures are clearly much more appropriate.

    I would say that there is absolutely nothing special about my chess game. I am a crappy/mediocre player who makes a lot errors due to ignorance and laziness. I suspect that many people who have something 'special' about their game are probably going to have more in common with my style than they want to admit.

    I don't use common openings, just the alekhine and reti and so on are mine. I also don't use my clock, I move relatively fast when playing OTB not even paying attention to my own time.
