All Time High


I bumped my All Time High at the Chess Tactics Server (CTS) by a few points (7!) and that feels good! It has been a while since the last record. In some way, I manage to fool myself that I am under rated at CTS (what are ratings for?). Still, my ratings at other sites tend to be grossly above my well rounded lack of skill.


  1. Congratulations on your success at cts!
    For me ratings are the reason why I choose to suck at chess...The rating is what gives a chessplayer his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.
    And of course there's bragging rights... ;-)

  2. Oh, Very Inspirational! Right you are!

    Ratings help me to keep sucking at chess! It is mucho joyous when an almost arbitrary function that pretends to map from R**n to R hits a new high.

    May the Ratings be with you!

  3. Congratulations from one grumpy geezer to another. :-)

  4. Still working on you tactics on Chess Tactics Server? How about Chess Tempo?

  5. I use CT and these days. CT is the best
