I was never destined for chess greatness. In my only FIDE rated OTB tournament (British Major Open 2000), I failed to get a 2000 rating by half a point, fading after starting with wins against a FIDE 2047 and 2088 in the first two rounds. My best blitz win was against the club champion of Harlow, when he was around 2200 FIDE. My best win in the only time-handicapped blitz tournament I have played in (at the Barbican in London) was against an FM who got his GM title a couple of years later.
