I’ll take it!
This post did not age well.^ "sometimes, he’d take his queen on a four-move tour of the board before swapping her home square with the king’s, letting his opponent develop their pieces while he showboated. This is a more elaborate version of a popular joke opening known as the “Bongcloud.” "
Reminds me of the current predicament the Dems are in.
First, their (99,976% White) Queen Warren (or is it Queen Buttligieg?) waltzes blindly through the opening primaries - while gaining no real ground - but then the frail old King Sanders (who was supposed not to move, as he was to be a mere symbolic presence) decides to boldly step forward, thus making the game farcical and unwinnable by the Dems.
So it's like the Dems are not seriously trying to win this election. They are Bongclouding, while their opponent, who's both King and (Trump-)Tower, is deep in 4-D chess.
Serious!My elo is between 2000-2100 in blitz.
If anyone wants a game on a weekend I'll be happy to play. I can sign up anywhere.
Seems like Lichess and Chess.com are very different for some reason. On Lichess I'm ranked almost 1250, regularly beating other players in that area, but on Chess.com I've never even made it to 1000.
2000 is really, really, really good, it's not something you can get to by watching a couple of videos.I think I have the ability to get to 2000 ELO and that will be a goal for the next couple of years. Agadmator and blitz games are helping me improve quickly.
I have a top 1% IQ and was a junior champion. I mainly need to work on learning theory.Lichess' ratings are inflated, kind of like American women's apparel size system.

Are you a titled player (GM/IM/FM/CM)? Would be interested in playing you.
Nothing frustrates me and makes me feel dumber than a game of chess. I play it alot.
