If chess players are so smart why they are not millionaires/billionaires?

    You can be a genius for all I care that's your biusness.

    Has anyone derived the equation smart = money yet?

  • #423

    I apologize.  Perhaps I am a bit jaded because my parents took me out of Little League and forced me to enroll in scholastic chess.

    Do you know how to evaluate sources?

    Another question, does this story cite the source of this information?  NO.

    Check out the comments section of this article for some real entertainment.

    So basically what you are saying is you believe anything and everything you read on the internet.

    This is rich. Coming from a guy that creates and edits wiki pages under multiple sockpuppet accounts.

    Richness, according to Gordon Gekko comes from family, your own business or speculation :) Chess does not seem to fall there

    Indeed.  How is what I said incompatible with the caveat I gave?

    Nope, smart does not = money. People with super high IQ's may be janitors. And people with lower IQ's can make fortunes being a doctor.

    I just suddenly had the idea of starting a forum called

         "Chess Players:  Are They Competitive in Other Areas, Too?"

    Then I started thinking about the inevitable exchanges:  "Yes, we Are!" -- "No we're Not!"  "Well, You just proved You Are!" "Well, You're just ... a Stupid-Head!  "No, I'm not -- You are!"

    -- I got enough laughs from just thinking about it, so now I don't need to start the forum.  Well, that's a time-saver. ;-)

    Sorry, that was off topic.  Back to the discussion...

    A smart mind isn't going to guarantee you riches but "street smarts" will. Many intellecually gifted people don't possess business skills.
