An adult player's quest to get a Master rating.
I'm guessing that after the games were played in the U1600 section he was somehow disqualified or ineligible for the prize so his games were placed into their own section?Interestingly, DANIYAR IMANKULOV was one of the players involved. (See the comments here.)
that guy is 2100 now prolly a sandbagger or underrated person.
As Glenn said that was exactly the case. I was doing the computer pairings for the under 1600 section. We were getting complaints about how well this player was doing against much higher rated competition. So I Googled his name and and a hit on the Mexican Chess Federation's website. There we found he had a Mexican rating of 2000. Internet access in the TD room makes it easier to do this type of detective work.So his results up to the point of his expulsion were put into a separate section for rating purposes, and his opponents in the under 1600 section received a 1/2 point bye for the round they played him in.Cheating sucks. He's currently rated 2000 something. His USCF floor is 1800, but he may have a higher CCA floor.
I've been reading through your past games... very interesting blog. Good luck on your goal!
If youve ever played in the coffeehouses in the city or at UWM weve probably already met. Youve been added to my side bar.
I played a few times at UWM a few years ago. What are the coffee houses where chess is played?
I havent played at either of the clubs in milwaukee. I do meet with a group of people usually at Anodyne (otherwise known as Brewed) on sunday afternoons. Its a nice little place on Brady street just east of Humboldt. We used to meet at comet some years ago and had anywhere from 10-20 at a time. Now it is between 5-10 people every sunday. Their is a bar nearby too that I hear has some very good players but I havent experienced it. If your interested in some casual sunday games let me know.
Seems it was a simultenous event where the player played very well !
