CHESS.com Rating: 496

I’ve recently started playing/relearning chess again and created an account over at CHESS.com. I can neither confirm nor deny that watching The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix influenced this decision. Regardless . . . my playing has improved dramatically over the past few days and my RAPID score is rising.

The goal is to eventually reach +1630 because that is what Charles Krauthammer’s UFC rating is/was for his one and only tournament on record. It was the 34th Atlantic Open that he played in 2000 according to a chess.com post.
