I am The Chess Bum.

I have played chess for at least one hour everyday for the past decade, and I’m still crap. That’s not to say, that when I started ten years ago I was phenomenally bad, and now I have risen to the ranks of pathetic. No, after a decade of playing chess my chess rating is the same 1200 today that it was ten years ago. I say 1200, but chess ratings are like the size of a man’s genitals, prone to exaggeration. If I’m honest, I can rarely get it up to 1200 and keep performing at that level.
