    I like that chess has checking.
    The Plan at the moment:

    Draft: Trade a 3rd and 6th this year to a team to move up and get a 2nd next year (this will happen).

    Players I want:
    Jake Ferguson (Jake Butt) or Jelani Woods or Jeremy Ruckert or Cade Otten (owen daniels) at TE- All 4th rd or later.
    Troy Anderson LB 3rd/4th rd (yay Timmy!)
    Neil Farrell, JR DL- run stuffer- bye purcell

    I'm a chess junkie. I'm not rated that highly, but I get by.

    If anyone really wants to level up BIG TIME without wasting a bunch of time or spinning wheels--check out this book at library or amazon or your local book store.

    "How to Reassess Your Chess: Chess Mastery through Chess Imbalances"

    There's lots of lame-ass, stuffy chess books out there. This one f*cks for days.

    What's that elo?

    Don't be modest - we're aware that elo is a flawed metric, especially as MtG players- but spill the tea!

    I really don't know. My guess would be that the sober, classic-game with clocks, over the board type game with 90 minute time controls would be about 1800-1900. I got a USCF membership in order to play some local tournaments, I entered into the lowest rated bracket I could and won them (because cash prizes). So my rating began very low and barely budged. To get massive ratings boost, I'd have to enter harder divisions (which would naturally happen after winning enough, but ratings move slowly). I'm not good enough to cash the harder divisions probably, and then it got a bit too time-consuming. These are two-day tourneys and it's like surgery all day. Then you win maybe $100 or something silly.

    I decided I liked the convenience of lichess more--plus I didn't have any irl chess brohams to make it more fun.

    (From the Magnus video) Peter Svidler, btw--world class chess commentator. Like Tony Romo in the booth. Check out his commentary work on Chess24.com or wherever you can find it.

    Yeah. Anand got that silverback old man strength. Kind of like Phil Mickelson.

    My advice: focus on one line for white, and a system for black.
