    I don't care. Let him have it. (It's a worm).

    Don’t teach your grandmother to suck eggs.

    'Sing like no one is listening. Love like you've never been hurt. Dance like nobody's watching.'

    Sound advice for virgins who can't sing or dance. Lame advice for everyone else.

    Every chess master was once a beginner.

    (20 years and I am only 1600 and still blunder like a beginner! WTF!?)

    I am 1900 at chess24 in 10 minute blitz but it's a new site so the ratings haven't settled yet.
    It is still depressing to play for 20 years and only 1600 average.

    You've only played 11 games so far wait till you get to 20 before you even start thinking about ratings, then wait till you've played a couple hundred should tell you where you are for certain!!!

    You only played 11 games you have 13 in progress give yourself some time. You could be a expert to a master in the making!
