    Congratz to Weyerstrass for reaching the top spot on our ratinglist here! Very well done! And still unbeaten... Which Dutch grandmaster is he? We are very lucky to have such a brilliant player at the site!

    Go W!!!

    With a rating of "only" 2159 OTB I don't think he has an official title.

    Edit:
    2159 KNSB is about the same playingstrength as 2159 FIDE or 2259 USCF

    But a correspondance IM is different from being an OTB IM.

    So we have a correspondence specialist then. Cool too. I'm more of an over the board player. On the site here I'm usually 150 rating less than at the club.

    You just have to google his name to find he's a corr IM

    Congrats. Akizy's been up there since I can remember!

    EDIT: Actually, Skeeter was top, when I joined the site

    Ronald Weyerstrass (NED) achieved the ICCF IM title in 1990, before the computer era. You can see this for yourself at the link below. Look at the pdf file labelled IM which is listed by country.

    If a 2100 player can get to 2400+, then a GM can get to 3000
