Headhunters

Just what is a chess headhunter?  A chess headhunter is a player who maintains a high rating by deliberately challenging much lower rated players.  This doesn't count friends whith you wish to stay in touch or play for fun.  It does count the stranger who challenges you out of the blue.

So, here's the deal ladies, I propose a special trophy just for the girls who manage to take down a headhunter.  Call it a Valkyrie.  If you are challenged by a stranger with a rating two hundred points or more higher than your own, he's an official headhunter.  Beat him and clain your Valkyrie.

I just accepted a headhunter's challenge.  Wish me luck.
