    Tournament 2942

    Out of all the players who have won tournaments, I bet there are only a handful who have won with a perfect score...

    Not true.

    These are just from the overview page. And I didn't look through them all, mostly just the splits, octets and grands:

    Tournament 2229
    Tournament 2243
    Tournament 2465
    Tournament 2630
    Tournament 2816
    Tournament 2338
    Tournament 2776
    Tournament 2437

    Congrats on going undefeated, but I think you need to get over yourself.

    No way, eh - its party time at my end. Those guys never had to beat 20 players either, and to add to it, in a fast time control where I couldnt just pace out which games I wanted to play - all games had to be won within the same limit.

    Wrong, yet again. If you would have actually looked at them, you'd see that Tournament 2776 was a 1/0 Grand, which is actually almost as time demanding as 0/21 tournaments. And these are just from the overview. I'm sure out of the other 2000+ tournaments, there's quite a few who went undefeated, maybe even in a bigger tournament than yours.

    That one was hidden near the end. Anyway - none of those guys made a self praising topic like this one, so at least I have beaten them to that.

    ...and you are bragging because?

    With a rating 250 higher than the next highest rated player do you really feel that this was a great achievement?

    Come back and boast when you play and win a tournament like
    Tournament 2172 where your fellow opponents are all highly rated, and you still keep a clean sheet.

    You're a chess machine. Can you tell us how you are able to play such electric chess consistently?

    There are far more consistant players then me around here - I just find people are more inclined to blunder in the hardcore tournaments, so I pick up more points in those.

    Interestingly, when I clicked this link, I saw that Dutch Defense said good bye.

    I guess congrats are due ……..

    however, you have a long long way to go to beat this guy …

    User 387165

    2 consecutive 100% 1/0 grand’s

    Tournament 2945
    Tournament 3023


    And he’s managed to do this with a gameload in excess of 200, over 7000 moves this month AND maintaining a rating of 2100+

    Now that’s what I call ‘perfect’ 😉

    He is a pretty good player, I agree. I am sure our paths will have to cross at some point - I want to win a tournament with him involved.

    I hope that you are talking about erice and not Tchex...because accusations are not welcome anywhere on the site.
