Re: 2500! Not such an exaggeration. And how computer chess h

I would see impressive with you if you get 2000 rating on chess.com than 2500 on chess24. Given my approximation of the ratings on chess24, a 2500 player on chess24 would be about 2300 on chess.com, right?

Re: Nay Lin Tun

1/3 of the online players are cheaters, right? In my experience, it's not like that. Some people speculate on time in a short time, but it's legal. Others get lost, and simply close the program and leave you looking at the board for a few minutes. I haven't found cheaters in a while, and I play a d...

But, since you claim to be able to beat the best program in the history of the world, this shouldn't be an issue, right? :lol:

Re: First Review

You probably need to publish about 50-200 videos before you create a good one. First videos are usually crap unless you got talent. Much work and once you start don't give up. Are you speaking from experience? Or could we just take the word "probably" in your statement as meaning that you're guessi...
