May-11-05  aw1988: LOL!!
Feb-27-08  D.Observer: Why do he have a lot of losses? Is Armstrong a weak player?
Premium Chessgames Member
  pawn to QB4: Well, the English Chess Federation have him at ECF 174, so over 2100 Elo by the new method. Which, I suppose, makes him a weak player if you're a GM but a bit of a tiger if you play him in the Derbyshire League as I do now and then. The losses seem mostly down to him being up for taking on the bigger boys at strong tournaments, respect for that. Anyway, I didn't know he'd got a page here, so thanks for pointing it out and maybe I'll have an opening surprise for him next time Belper show their faces in Chesterfield.
Mar-11-08  Fast Gun: There is a huge difference between strong club players (2000-2100) Master players (2200-2400) Grandmasters (2500-2600) and finally the super GM's 2700+ I am only at 1500-1600 level and would love to be able to play at 175=2000 standard !!
