    My work colleague Coventry City User 435329 stands a reasonable chance.
    I think he will be RHP 1500+ & he is quite a solid player for someone who doesn't know any theory.

    Good luck to all though!

    I think we should stop posting threads about how awesome "we" are.

    Thanks but how can I enter the sub1500 when I'm already over 1500?

    Wow; I have to say that for a non-native English speaker, your use of English idioms is downright amazing.

    Been a long time since

    "I no play here till now. I only lead the forum. It is becoming borring."

    and

    "Its bad enough being addicted to chess but why are most of you obsessed with cheating (or trying to chatch cheats)? If you infested this time in reading chess books, your chess improve no? Remember the saying Not the cry, but the flight of the wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow. Seem to me that some of you are engaged in a wild goose chase."

    Congratulations on your progress!

    but he was born again, with exactly the same amino acids encoded in him.

    Then why isn't his rating better than 1500??

    He probably picked up some taste and manners at some point, too.
