I have become a chess book connoisseur. If you know of a good chess book please feel free to talk to me about it!

My USCF is 2000. My FIDE is 2000. My FICGS rating is 2100. My ICCF Rating is 2400. My ICC rating is 2300. My Netchess rating is 3000. My FICS rating is 2250. If ratings mean that much to you, you can now place me within the realm of your statistics!

"You know, when you achieve something in Norway, well, you're not supposed to get above yourself. This is especially big in my country, that you- how do I explain this? - that you're not supposed to think you're better than anyone else only because you had success in some field, and you will always find someone ready to point this out to you in Norway." - GM Magnus Carlsen

"Critics are men who watch a battle from a high place, then come down and shoot the survivors." - Ernest Hemingway

"When you have confidence, it is not that everything you do is 'right,' it is that you have less self doubts because you are inspired." - GM Dmitry Gurevich

   Oct-18-21 United States Championship (2021) (replies)
parmetd: More than a dozen years. Let's not forget he was an IM 2400+ before he left.
   Jun-05-21 World Championship Candidates (2020/21) (replies)
parmetd: Well no because they were caught by FIDE as Ben Finegold bragged about it on his blog. I think Ben's final GM norm was one of Susan Polgar's Spice cups. The double norm rules were something Ben was using to fake a norm he didn't make by taking for example his 10th round win and ...

parmetd: Looks like Wang Hao has retired:

parmetd: I suspect player of the day is automatically seleceted in some way from a list of players whose birthday it is. It is definitely a reasonable suggestion to Sargon though to maybe have some system, flag or way of marking well known cheaters out of the player of the day list...
   Jan-27-21 Tata Steel Masters (2021) (replies)
parmetd: Thank you. Funny story on that avatar, I had used another avatar from about 2007 to 2010 which magically in 2010 set another user into a very angry frenzy because it turns out we had the same avatar! He emailed Daniel Freeman and demanded my avatar be removed. Daniel kindly emailed ...
   Jan-25-21 A Esipenko vs Carlsen, 2021 (replies)
parmetd: 17. Ncxb5! is a very nice move and easy for anyone to miss. The strange move is 20... d5? Why not try to play the pawn down endgame after 20... Nf6 Qxd6. I think Magnus holds such an endgame 50% of the time.
   Oct-30-20 Swiercz vs A Liang, 2020 (replies)
parmetd: It was already lost at that point. After 12... e5 it is already -+

parmetd: The events page is up US Championship (Women) (2020)
   Oct-29-20 US Championship (2020) (replies)
parmetd: Final standings were: 1. GM Wesley So +7 9/11 (+7 -0 =4) $40,000 2. GM Jeffery Xiong +6 8.5/11 (+7 -1 =3) $25,000 3. GM Ray Robson +4 7.5/11 (+6 -2 =3) $16,000 I do find it rather insulting they call it the US Championship though rather ...

parmetd: <Sokrates> I can fully relate to that experience from when I was learning Spanish. It is always frustrating trying to have a conversation in a language when you lack the fullness of your usual vocabulary choice to express the concept you want to say. Anyways, everyone would ...
