Do you have an estimate of the amount of time that will go by without a known titled player affirming that "the quality of" your "play and decision making in critical positions" demonstrates GM strength?

I want to hit rank 1 on chess.com daily chess format within the next 2 months,  provided people move fast enough and I can get sufficiently rated challengers to climb that fast.  

So, you have no estimate of the amount of time that will go by without a known titled player affirming that "the quality of" your "play and decision making in critical positions" "already" demonstrates GM strength?

Playing one of the most theory intensive openings at your level us not a good idea, especially when youre not even following the basics of the game.

Maybe his plan is using it for online blitz games, not otb. The system chooses players of the same level, so, why not?

For the future, perhaps we can agree that opening choice can matter for someone like DJJuriaial?

the best opening for DJJuriaial or anyone else is to play their own ideas naturally,  instead of trying to use someone else's work

I estimated that some titled player would complain about me demolishing this website in like a week.   I have also estimated that I will hit rank 1 or at the very least be obviously trending towards that in less than 2 months.   

So, you no longer want to discuss the idea that you "already demonstrate" "GM strength" by "the quality of" your "play and decision making in critical positions"?

Makes no difference to me.  My comment was based on their rating.

I already made that claim,  if you would like to find a GM who isn't capable of recognizing that I'd be more than happy to beat them a few times to insist the point. ... if you can find a champion to do some detective work OR try to beat me i'd play along.

I'm sure a known titled player will complain about me in the near future and make a big scene.  I believe my estimate was a week.

By February 26, 2020, we will see a known titled player stating that you "already demonstrate" "GM strength" by "the quality of" your "play and decision making in critical positions"?

So are you saying that some of the posts are not relevant to the OP's initial post?  Do you have facts to back this up?

You have a valid point. I suppose that we can now at least postpone further discussion until February 26.

If you face problems in choosing chess openings then I strongly recommend chessmood. The reason is explained in the bottom.
  1. Chessmood openings are sharp and also secure and depends on your style you can play positional too in some setups.
  2. Chessmood openings are full of novelties.
  3. Ideas were so easily explained so even a beginner can understand what's going on and a beginner can also grasp long term opening plans.
  4. Yu can crush easily 2000 elo field without too much efforts.
  5. Chessmood presentation method is not only focused on variations in opening but it will also teach you strategy and especially power of bishop pairs.
Still a lot more about chessmood which I can't describe in words.
Check out free starter course and rest is for pro members. You will find more benefits of becoming pro in Chess Lectures announcements.
