Can we underline finally twice too?

Welcome to the world of playing poker for fun. It's is fun (underlined twice) and you will enjoy (underlined twice) it more now that you ever would have under the old plan.

I just used the seach-button (waiting for applause to fade....) and read some stuff about ELO ranking of chess players.

Do all chess-players who play regularly have such a rank?

Where on the scale of such a rank would you locate poor players, ok players, good players and very good players?

Anyone who plays in weekend tournies etc recognised by their national chess association, will be graded. You only need to play 6 such games to get one.

"Poor", "ok", '"good" and "very good" are all relative terms. Club players span from, say, 1000 up. International Masters start at about 2300, Grandmasters at about 2500. The highest ranked player ever is Kasparov who peaked at around 2850.

That was pretty random. You were reading the thread before you posted, right?
