Basically the guy who said that to you is an idiot. There's so many keyboard warriors and trash talkers on the internet it's not even funny anymore. He only said it because he probably knew what kind of reaction he would get (and got!) but it's kinda good that you're fired up. You were too worked up to play well in the following game but hopefully the guys pissed you off enough to go play OTB again!! I know it's a pain in the arse for you but hey once you get that GM title you can totally retire OTB and just say, 'Hey AHOLE check out my title'. Doesn't Curtains (GM) just look good to you????

chess elo-rating is NOT a transitive relation.

not that that means anything. :wink:

Btw do juniors really need teachers? Comps should be good enough nowadays.

I sure wish I were one of those "weak" 2600 players.

of course juniors need teachers. as curtains pointed out, a trainer doesn't need to be some 2800+ GM. the trainer simply needs to INSPIRE the student, to push the student to do the necessary work, to be ambitious. Rybka and Fritz cannot do this.

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this video given its length, but the content was really entertaining. I like how you've expanded the form of a classical chess video....like a Beethoven Symphony or something: Opening rant, game, post-mortem analysis, Closing rant.

The opening rant was especially entertaining. I wish you could rig up a web cam or something so we could see the emotions on your face while you're spouting off. Any chance of that happening for the next one?

Anyways, thanks for posting.

Tanuj goes to the Fremont Chess Club, same club I go to - met him and his dad - that kid is special, I saw him beat this older kid, he's a little innocent kid, very small, a little guy, but man that kid can play - man when he walks into the club, man , and gave him and his dad the thumbs up - the dad gave me this crazy look, but his dad watched my last casual game at the club - had a winning position but blundered in time trouble...

How often do meek players make the top list? I'd be interested in knowing.
