My 4,000th USCF Rated Chess Game

My 4,000th USCF Rated Chess Game

I recently played my 4,000th USCF Rated Chess game, and it was a win! I began playing Rated Chess when I was in High School. That was something like 37 years ago!

At the time of this 4,000th game, I was in my 747th USCF Chess Tournament.

Of the 747 tournaments I have had 55 FIRST PLACE Finishes; 45 SECOND PLACE Finishes; 74 THIRD PLACE Finishes.

My record after this game was 2,068 wins; 1,408 losses and 524 draws. (58%)

Of the 4,000 games 1,970 were played as White and 2,030 as Black.

My record with the White pieces is 1,040 Wins, 669 losses and 261 draws. (59%)

My record with the Black pieces is 1,028 wins, 739 losses and 263 draws. (57%)

Those 4,000 games were played against 652 different opponents.

The highest rated player I have faced was IM Joel Banawa (2515). 

The lowest rated player I have faced was William Anthony (560) whom I have played 18 times, but in spite of his low rating I have only won half the games, with 3 draws.

The average rating of all my opponents is 1657. 

The highest rated player I have beaten is NM Ken L Arnold (2369) {against whom I have played a total of 7 times, winning 1, losing 5 and drawing 1)

The lowest rated player against whom I have lost is Robert Wayne Varnell (1055)

The average rating of the opponents I have beaten is 1592

The average rating of the opponents to whom I have lost is 1785

The average rating of the opponents with whom I have drawn is 1720

My highest rating achieved was 1917

My lowest rating was 1528

I have faced 40 Masters; 68 Experts; 118 Class A; 232 Class B; 126 Class C; 80 Class D; 39 Class E; 33 Class F; and 10 Class G. That's a total of 746 class opponents, which might seem to contradict the total number of different people played (652). However, there are many of those players against whom I played at different rating classes. In other words, they crossed classes.

The person I have faced most has been Zachary Snow II (1667). I have played him 38 times with 16 wins, 12 losses and 10 draws (which also makes Zack the person with whom I have drawn the most).

The person I have defeated the most times is Ken Green (1634) with 19 wins, 8 losses and 4 draws.

The person who has defeated me the most times is John Richard Coffey (2016) (tied with Zack Snow) who has defeated me 12 times. I have only managed 4 wins against him, with 6 draws.

Other rivalries that I have enjoyed are as follows:

Robert Michael Hibbs (1464) +11 -8 =5

Douglas Strout (1634) +7 -7 =4

William Anthony (560) +9 -6 =3

William Scoville (1813) +8 - 8 =1

Joshua Landeros (1615) +8 -6 =2

Dr Benjamin Karren (1853) +6 -4 =0

Ethan Hu (1091) +6 -4 =0

Timothy Sean Paper (1643) +6 -3 =1

Other people against whom I have played at least 10 games:

Jonathan Stanley Russell (1198) +12 -3 =2

Douglas R Field (1089) +12 -1 =0

Eddie Shelton Barber (1966) +1 -9 =3

Juergen Marcus Werner (1337) +10 -1 =2

NM Michael J Hehir (2082) +3 -9 =1

Johnny B Carrido (1663) +8 -3 =1

Olurotimi Rowland (1576) +7 -2 =3

NM AJ Goldsby (2200) +2 -6 =3 

NM William Marcelino (2212) +1 -9 =0

My 4,000th game was against CJ Armenta (1529), whom I have played 12 times; winning 8, losing 3, and drawing 1. This particular game was a win. I hope you'll enjoy it.

 There was nothing spectacular about this game, other than it was my 4,000th, but with that many games some of them are bound to be ordinary.
