    I assume Howard is still playing on ICC. He stopped using the old handle I knew him by but a bunch of months ago I heard a clip of his show where he was complaining about playing poorly and wanting to quit, like many chess players do.

    His standard rating on the old handle was in the 1700s and on the show he was saying he had dropped into the 1600s. So he's a decent player. Not bad for taking up the game as a 50 year old. Getting lessons from a master helped I bet.

    There are 3 Howard Sterns listed on the uscf site, do you think one is him? 2 are still unrated & the other is 1900's.
