    512602now, you can't be more pathetic than this, can you? If you want to spam threads with your nonsense, do so elsewhere. (It's great that you closed your account.)

    Unbelievable rating deflation !!!!!!!! I am a 2200 player but I am losing to some 1700 patzers. Perhaps too many engines 

    Great to see ya back on chess.com!

     It is not however, great to see him continuing with the same accusations of cheating and the same use of profanity in Live Chess Chat that eventually resulted in the disabling of his first account after multiple warnings.

    I am therefore muting this account immediately.

    Although he might have meant that people use engines in their training, learn opening variations, practice tactics and review their games - and as more and more people do that, play at each respective level (such as 1700, for example) becomes stronger (as nobody's rating would rise were everybody suddenly to play better). 

    I'm not familiar with this guy's history, though - just looking at this specific quote.

    My phone sucks and don't have a computer. But I have a nice chess board and am very good at chess. Looking for someone to play through text so I have a ongoing game forever on my chess board.

    Play Daily/correspondence here instead. Unless your phone just won't display the boards at all.

    What that question has to do with ratings? Who cares what the other dude thinks, you decide if you want to play

    turtle, the general points system followed is as follows:

    pawn - 1pt.

    knight/bishop - 3pts.

    rook - 5pts.

    queen - 10pts.

    of course points are not everything... the position of your piece also matters.. for example you might not mind losing a bishop or rook to save a pawn on the 7th row.. and points dont have any bearing on the game result.. it is just a basic framework to help beginners understand the value of different pieces

    I was taught the queen's value was about 9 points. Has this changed?

    "I was taught the queen's value was about 9 points. Has this changed?"

    The value of pieces is an average which might depend on the position. Do you really think that 10% is a terrible difference ?

    That is strange, I was advised that several messages have been posted since I sent mine above (#2272), but when I come here my message is still the last one I can see :-o

    The Grandmasters of the old dident need to be so strong. And thay had limited tecnolagy. Databases and computers.

     

    Today thay get stronger.

    But todays GM are limited in time because thay spes7ualize in beating humans.

    There for todays GM are limmited when facing the top chess computers rated 3300.

    I a spesualist can beat draw with them. It takes allot of practice and learning strenghts and weaknesses and allot of opening preperation. And few can handle out of book new ground positions and hold up against top computers. It takes a genius. there have been few. I can be considerd one. My best move rate is worlds class.

    But the dream of reaching such hights of beeting 3300 is too hard beyond human potensiol it apears. Its an hardfight.

    Anyone trying to play better against strong computer.

    Aim for easy to play from positions.

    And if u spot a few winning chances thats.
