I liked the picture of The Queen's Gambit from Netflix and the links I also liked the link to "Gozo's Bob Marley ".

I was the only person to acquire an IM Norm in the last British Chess Championship. I am still available for Hire at £1000 per game no payment for lost game.

Do you have any idea what the 4NCL market is like?

(Hint: the only teams interested in paying a player £1000/game are those who can attract GMs all the way down.)

Wouldn't the going rate for an adult player of around Charlie's rating be somewhere between £ zero and minus £ 100? In other words an expectation that they would be self supporting in transport, accommodation, food and drink?

Female and junior players above 2200 might be able to command a "scarcity" premium.

I generally eat most GMs for breakfast and normally finish above most of them in the British by teatime day 11 or 9. That's because Northern FMs are normally stronger than 50 per cent of the Worlds GMs....... That despite GMs getting the prizemoney as expenses in the British which is well....ridiculous.

Roger...I think that rate would be for a player of your rating.

The OTB standard play performance can be viewed at

In the 2019 British, there was a first round win against Steve Gordon and a third round loss against Simon Williams. No other GM pairings were forthcoming.

Charlie, your first post in this thread included the words "Have you got more money than sense". Hardly the way to encourage a potential sponsor, I should have thought.

If you generally eat most GMs for breakfast, perhaps you'd like to explain your performance in your most recent GM all-play-all tournament bearing in mind that only 3 of the other 9 players were actually GMs and only one rated above 2500.

Sure....

When you have students you put their needs above your own needs. If that means rushing your game to make a scheduled session so be it. If that has an impact on the quality of your game then that is dedication.
Probably not the answer you were expecting.

Which is why Charlie is so entertaining. We all know he is not going to say he is an above average player trying to pass himself off as an exceptional player as a marketing strategy. But what he is actually going to say is always a bit of mystery, and I am starting to view these occasional insurgencies of Trumpian bravado as a forum tradition.

I had a look in ChessBase and could only see 4 wins against GMs in standard play games, and a large number of losses. Whilst this may be an incomplete record of your games, it seemed typical to me of what I'd expect of a player rated 2200 - 2300.

How many GMs have you beaten in standard play games?

Like others on the forum, I felt I had to check Charlie's claim, but wasted very little time on it. I just went back five games against GMs, all losses, and stopped.
If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.
