Re: *** Chess BBV ***

This can be compensated for somewhat by having much higher K factors for new players than for FIDE rated ones. I don't know if this is actually the case.

Re: *** Chess BBV ***

Thanks for reminding me to look up the Russian K-factors. They're as follows (independent of one's FIDE rating):

RCF ratingK
1000-119960
1200-139950
1400-159940
1600-179935
1800-199930
2000-219925
2200-239920
>=240010

So it's possible to make one's RCF rating on par with the FIDE one but it's still a long grind.

Beat: Had a misclick turn a mate in 1 into a hung queen (Qxa7# becomes Qb6??)

Brag: This is exactly the kind of position my opponents shouldn't be resigning!

Re: *** Chess BBV ***

Despite getting smashing positions like this against the dragon, I'm still wanna use it as part of my repertoire in classical games.

Re: *** Chess BBV ***

I feel a need to brag cause I feel underappreciated at my work, so this is the outlet, don't judge me PLS.

I haven't lost a classical chess game since 2015.11.17.

In the 16 classical games since then (LOL sample size) I scored 14 points, with an average rating of opposition being 2214.

If we take away one 1400 kid, I have scored 13 out of 15 vs an opposition of 2265.

Beat 2392 GM, 2563 GM, 2390 IM, 2468 IM and drew 2565 GM in the process.

I am not sure what is happening or why is it happening, but it is very enjoyable

JFC, I knew your rating was just going up and up but didn't realize within that timeframe your performance was so beastly.

Re: *** Chess BBV ***

I'm mostly just disappointed about the two points you left on the table, tbh. I demand nothing less than 100%.
