                      It used to be that 1800 was the benchmark to being a "good" player. However,1600 ,1700, is quite respectable.

    being 1600 is better than like 99% of the world population and in the top 20% of all chess players that have gone to a tournament.

    1500 blitz is apparently in the 90 percentile

    I would say 1200 is good if we take into consideration all chess players of the world including casual players and people who have played chess at least once in last few years.

    1500 is good for semi-serious chess players.

    1800 is good for serious chess players.

    2400 is the starting point of professional chess.

    Agreed. I dont think there is an actual point where you just get good. You have to know what you are comparing with.

    I feel good at being 522 OTB in only a year or two-does not mean that I'm good, just lucky

    That's sad. I was beating 1522s halfway in MY first year

    and THAT is the kind of constructive feedback that everyone gets to enjoy. 👍

    nobody gets to 220o with out trying uscf atlas in places where ti is hard to get ratings. In Missouri I play like a 1400 per their inflation and i play like a 1900 in new york/ texas, they have inflated ratings

    why are the ratings so wildly different? I thought that was the point...to keep a level playing field. thoughts?
