    You may want to get your rating into the 1200's before you start offering advice...

    I'll play.....(i'm 1600-ish)

    If you want running commentry then send an unrated challenge...

    though I must confess, I'm not much of a talker...so a Q&A sort of conversation would be far easier for me.

    I'll certainly give it a shot. I'm personable, I have good communication skills, and I certainly have myself convinced that I know alot. Send me an unrated challenge with a message when and if you are ready.

    You still play around 1100 at best, and you only drew with a 1000.

    Being better than "some" doesn't mean that you're good enough to teach. To teach people you have to have a strong knowledge of ideas, plans, tactics, strategy, planning, endgames, etc. And at your level I'm sure you don't have all of these or even most of these skills.

    Ok...Well, what does that have to do with being able to teach again?

    a 1100 would be perfectly capable of teaching 800's where they go wrong.

    why? well thier tactics, planning endgames, etc are going to be better than the 800's -- so, you [800] can learn something.
