Greetings and welcome to my profile! happy.png

Here are 13 fun facts about me:

1. My name is Ben, I am 13 years old, and going into 8th grade. (That was three facts? Oops!)

2. I am an extremely aggressive player and love to attack! My favorite openings are the KID, the queen's gambit, and the Sicilian Sveshnikov!

3. My current USCF rating is 1627

4. I will be representing Washington D.C. at the Barber Tournament of Champions on August 1-2! I qualified for the tournament by winning my state championship. I won my state championship by luck, obviously. When it comes to chess I do not have any skills.

5. I stream on Twitch, my channel is https://www.twitch.tv/harshsaber and I try to stream at least once a day. 

6. If I'm not on chess.com, I am probably on lichess or chesskid. My lichess account is HarshSaber and my chesskid account is BenTNorwoodGANDT (but I am not that active on chesskid)

7. I will accept all daily challenges, rated or unrated. Feel free to challenge me to a game!

8. If you know me in real life, or from an online summer camp, feel free to join my club! Unfortunately if I don't know you in real life, or if you don't say who you are, I will have to decline your join request.  https://www.chess.com/club/awesomes-friend-club

9. I sadly will report all obvious cheaters that I play. Cheating in chess is one of the most disgraceful things that you could possibly do. Considering that I, a humble 1600, have been able to correctly detect cheating multiple times, it should not be very hard for Stockfish (3438) to detect cheating. Please do not cheat in chess!

10. I write blogs on chess.com, I try to blog at least once every two weeks. I blog puzzles and tournament reports.

11. I started my daily chess speedrun on 7/26 with a daily chess rating of 650. My end goal is a daily rating of 1600. I have not yet achieved my goal. My current daily rating is 969.

12. Outside of chess, I like to swim, read, and watch The Simpsons.

13. Are you still reading this? If so, too bad! 13 is an unlucky number! You now are cursed and will not be able to win any of your chess games. The only way to get rid of it is to spin around in a circle 64 times with a pawn on your head! If the pawn falls off then you must start over!

Congratulations! You have unlocked something new!

My best games!

First a blitz game against a camp friend who usually crushes me, where I got a really lucky flag:

.

Then a crazyhouse game against a 2100!

You: Those were your best games? A swindle and a dirty flag?

Me: Yes... (sigh)

Also if you want to laugh, those were my only two 2000+ wins that were not due to my opponent losing connection!

Here is another sad thing... I am a USCF Class-B player but I have never beaten a USCF Class-A player. My best win is a 1780. (Although I have drawn a few experts)

As long as you're laughing, here are some jokes!

Q: What did the big flower say to the little flower?

A: Hi bud!

.

Q: Why did the golfer need a new pair of pants?

A: He got a hole in one

.

Q: Did you like the joke about the potato chip?

A: No, it was too corny

Get it?

Corn chips?

No... just me.... ok... bye....
