What do you think ?
Define what good is. Good in relation to all chess players, a group, family, or your own goal? What kind of rating?
I mean average is 1200 I think.
Judge yourself. http://www.chess.com/echess/players
thanks thats realy cool !
I think 1581 is pretty good for a 13 year old. You have time to improve and become really good!
Me, I'll die a contented patzer, but you can do better.
jeez thanks ! I am 12 btw.
1581 is generally a strong junior, although of course nowhere near the ranks of the top ones.
Not for a grandmaster
Depends on your goals. But generally speaking it's not bad at all, mate! :)
Thanks its better than I though.
Thanks; its better than I though.
Sorry @SebbyLeb, but your average opponents are fully 400 points below you in all three rating systems. Clean up your act.
NO, you're a lazy player who (chronically) plays weaker opponents.
Set you rating range at plus and minus 150, then see what happens.
Nice photo, in any case.
thanks but I play people rated 2100 unrated ( not lazy bro I work my but off every day )
You habitually play weak computers in standard chess, too. What's up with that?
Sorry, but that's a complete waste of your time.
Whatever. Knock yourself out.
Your unrated in online so I wouldnt talk if i wear you...
he probably couldn't talk if you were to wear him.
I fell out of my chair laughing.
Better than 1580! Sorry, no one had posted that yet.
But what's the point of the OP's post?
I am a 1500ish rated player. I enjoy learning and very competitive games so I tend to look for the 1600 and up players. I have beaten or "tied" a few of the better rated players and have recently added the "tatics training" to my skill development to try to cure my blind spots and knowledge deficiencies. I wouldn't do well in a timed tournament, but I am growing in my tactics and skills. Just as there are tactical skills and playing styles in other games/sports (I am a national ranked table tennis player - just took another medal in the recent Senior Games in Cleveland, OH), training and practice make you more perfect.
