    People I have had a revelation, I have figured out how you get to such a rating at RHP, I feel it circlers around this:

    o Play 1-4 games so you can "over analyze" the positions.

    o Play the majority as white

    o Make sure you play subscribers with heavy game loads and specifically try to get short time controls.

    o Collect any skulls on the way.

    o Make sure the games are highly tactical, because if its positional, the over analysis wont effective.

    Hope this information is helpful.

    Right now Ive pretty much followed all the rules, 75% of the games I have the white pieces, and Im undefeated, I'll let you know how it turns out.

    Wonder why you'd choose such a rating.

    How! You have never got to 1835 so no evidence that it works.

    Mind you there is proof that my "How to get to 2000 rating" thread does work. Thread 52484.

    P.S. and why are you still calling yourself a renouned Grob killer when there is no evidence of that either?

    Asshattery is in my top 5 favorite words of all time.

    But yeah, I do sort of agree - except that the Only chess forum is nearly as polluted anyway.

    "Renouned" isn't even a word, and you're not even close to that rating, so this post is complete garbage.

    You say you are undefeated but you lost more games than you won!
