    I noticed that highest has never lost. And the others only a few. Are these players that are professionals or world class and just come on here for fun?

    Please excuse my greeness to the world of chess.

    Weyerstrass is a CCIM (correspondence chess international master).

    Not too many titled players on here though... you don't have to have a rank to be a darn good chess player Look at me! lol jk.

    Weverstrauss is the top player, I have no idea if he is a Gm or IM, I will go out on a limb here and say that there are probably no proffesional GMs onsite but you never know.....
    The top 4000 players can beat me so there are some very good chess players here thats for sure

    There's a dude with a rating with 3001 here. I know he cheated though

    I know of 4 titled players in the top 15.
    Theoretically of course, most of the top 50 should be titled.

    There is also an ECF 165 in the top 10, which is a massive rating discrepancy & no, I will not PM anyone any names!

    Most of us know who you are talking about but likewise I won't give names as it will merely attract suspicion where none is warranted.

    ECF grades are OTB but this is an altogether different type of chess (as is blitz) where you have more time and the legitimate use of resources like books and databases that can make for a significantly different rating from OTB play.
