Originally posted by ZygalskiDepends, FMs aren't necessarily super duper powerful CC players, especially if they concentrate on OTB skills. The top guy on chess.com seems legit, he's survived the rather draconian banning system they have for many years now, and yet he is outperforming various titled players. I'd be more worried if you could show me a pre-computer CC master that Skeeter had soundly thrashed.
Well, there are at least 2 FM's in the top 20, so for a random nobody to outperform titled players would be quite an achievement. That's all.
