Well personally I believe that, for my age (18), just knowing the basics of chess makes me good for my age, now if I were, say, 24, then it would be a big fat no.

I know a kid who passed 2000 around his 8th birthday and is currently a 2156-rated 9-year-old.

And another kid from about the same area who's a bit younger at 2087 (still 9)

Top u8 US players currently are in the 1700s - current generation is weaker than a couple of years ago.

One kid to watch out for is Aydin Turgut. One scary 8-year-old with quite a strong dad. (2618 CCGM and FM)

I'm good for any age, but, you know, only as in "Hey, that guy next door is really good at chess", not as in actually ever winning anything that counts. Cool

Sorry but the question has no relevance. Age has nothing to do with skill ability or desire.
