    If you are intelligent, it doesn't certainly mean you're good at chess. Chess requires constant practice, and sometimes reading books and studying tactics. It is though related. From intelligence, logic can easily be found.

    And creativity, which is more important in chess and correlated with intelligence. But the basic reason intelligent people are better at chess is that given the right set of circumstances they will soak up all information they are given. If you're not succeeding at chess, check your environment. You're playing on a computer; you don't have any friends who play it; you don't know what you're doing; there's no guiding hand.

    You have to pick up on subtle things to be good. One thing I didn't like until recently were trends. I don't know why, I just hated using them, I thought it made me a certain kind of player. Funny thing is, when I started using them unconsciously, I got to 1700 on chess.com in standard. I'm gonna start using them again, I think I've stopped using them for far too long.

    To conclude, I found the theoretical trends idea a few weeks back in a book by Yermolinsky. I don't think I understood it then, but then I realized my teacher had always used trends and had taught me how to use them but I was stubborn/didn't know how. Now I realize I CAN use them because I had the environment ready to be able to the whole time.

    Yes, intelligent people can suck at chess forever.

    Best exemple: Bill Gates. He likes chess, but is a deep patzer:

    The reason is that Bill and other intelligent people do not study chess a lot. They play only a few games and study only a few hours by year.

    Hi , me too monomaniac... many bullets. here is my 2 cents.. 20000 games work against you.  I just started to play less bullets/blitz and Improved. Also take a 2 minute break between the games this really improves focus...
