A win which got me to 1900+ in Standard

  • #61

    Does not look like engine play to me, the game was decided after Black blundered a pawn, and on the next move he suckrificed a whole rook for nothing.

    1900 blitz rating isn't that unusual for a lady. I might persuade my wife to open an account here (current FIDE rating 2176, probably her lowest for the last 25 years) and attach a 20-year old photo of hers... Tongue Out

    pfren, love your comment.

    Why shouldn't a woman have a 1900 or more rating? Actually, there is plenty of women who have that. And not on Chess.com, but OTB.

    Maybe Sophia closed the account because she was annoyed with people on chess.com.

    You play very drawish chess.  As for your opponents rook sacrifice, I can't figure out what his logic was.

    he just hung the rook. She was probably tired of "irrelevant posts"

    I don't think the comments were about the gender + rating combo, it was that there have been a string of recent accounts with young women avatars who get a rating around 1900 and then close their account only to have another one appear a few weeks later.
