How good you are at chess isnt that much about talent its about the effort you put in

@bobby_max, that is absolutely not true. You REALLY do not want to hear what I sounded like when I started violin 7 years ago, but now I'm playing this (relatively well, if I do say so myself):

Also, I was about 100 when I first started playing chess.

Wow. Thank you. This what Bach has been missing all my life!

I am 41 years old. Have three kids and work full time. Last year I decided to learn how to play chess and not just shuffle the pieces around. So this year I went from around 1000 to 1500. I have no talent for chess and have poor working memory. But I am stubborn and know that I have to rely on repitition and memory to win. If I can reach 1500 then most can do it in less time.

(Oh, and try to not be me and tilt easily or play when you are tired and losing. It has cost me 100s of rating points time and time again).

Everyone can play chess even a 0 rated player can
Up standers like me give others integrity

I appreciate this post Sillis83. I've been playing classic against players rated above me (1000 and over) in hopes of improving my skill (I'm like 567 right now). But I loose rating points every game.
