Yeah it's pretty much been conclusively proven now.
"And in conclusion..." In case you missed it.
There is a lot of supporting evidence, but in no way has it been "conclusively proven."
Aw yeah! I am definitely 2500+ uscf!
2500 Uscf would be 2400 Fide, which is IM-strength
Yeah, it's pretty on point, yes.
Actually FIDE ratings are higher than USCF.
1600 FIDE = around 1500 USCF
180 + 0.94 x FIDE if FIDE <= 200020 + 1.02 x FIDE if FIDE > 2000
If you look at the ratings for the top 10 US players its easy to see that their uscf ratings are significantly higher than their fide ratings .
How many feet in your mouth ?
How many hours in a GM?
Probably a lot.
How many meters in a foot?
How many pits in a pear?
Don't read everything you believe.
Are you suggesting we read everything we don't believe ? I'm confused ...
I'm not about to read through over a thousand posts...Has anyone posted this scatter plot of USCF vs. FIDE ratings? It's a bit dated, but should still be useful.
