Hi, I'm Burger, an member (obviosly) here on chess.com. I am active, and will try very hard when necessary.

Lichess wouldn't load for me so I came back to chess.com and realized its better than I thought.

My ratings were higher on Lichess (I was a 2k in rapid and 1900+ in blitz and bullet), but I like it here. I just hope chess.com will create something like Shield Arenas which is what Lichess has.

Ima big fan of the leagues system- currently trying to qualify for Legend.

I have no idea what my favorite time control is lol... I play bullet far too much and rapid far too little... I don't like playing 1/1 or 2/1 bullet because if I accidently botez gambited then I like to flag my opponent, if there is an increment he'll normally have enough time on his clockwink.png.

Btw FINALLY REACHED 1K FOLLOWERS on July 10th!! Send me a friend request right now to get me to 2k! I posted about it here. Send me a PM or post in the notes if you or anybody else got to 1k faster (it took me 5 and a half months). Ik @Hikaru and countless other streamers probably have, but other than any GMs or whatever, I think I am pretty close to having the record.

Hopefully getting an otb rating soon, I don't actually have a FIDE or ECF rating yet, but my dad thinks I should be at least 1700.

One of my best games:

I created a blog about it here.

And now for the two games where I defeated Tani himself... twice (in a row)!

Game 1:  Chess: TanitoluwaAps116 vs Burgermaniac - 17426595389 - Chess.com

That's one of my best games too... perhaps #1. People who where watching the game (since Tani was playing) were like- he just beat an NM!!! 

Game 2: Chess: Burgermaniac vs TanitoluwaAps116 - 17427134739 - Chess.com

He beat me in four bullet games after that lol... but still, I beat Tani!!

My chess personality is Magician, like Tal. He and Bobby Fischer are my favorite players of all time. My favorite game of all time is one of Fischer's.

And to think that he managed to do all that when he was only 13!!!

My best arena placing: #2 in this tournament 1|0 Bullet - Live Chess Tournament - Chess.com

    When I am not playing chess, its normally football. My preferred positions are in goal or forward. I have lots of opinions on football clubs and players, any others like me join this club.

    Btw my lichess username is BurgerManiac777

My favorite chess memes: There are more but I don't feel like uploading them yet but I will get to it lol.

    People I Have Adopted









and countless others, especially in time controls of 30 seconds or less.

Anyway, that's about all of my boring but lengthy bio. To finish it off, I will put in one of my favorite chess puzzles out there:

  See if you can solve it without any hints.

Oh, and one last thing:

Bullying? You think your so cool? The girl you called fat? She is on a diet. The girl you called ugly? She spends hours putting makeup on hoping people will like her. The boy you tripped? He is abused enough at home. See that man with the ugly scars? He fought for his country. The boy who was crying? His mother is dying. The kid you just made fun of for being bald? He had cancer. Put this in your profile if you are against bullying.
