Re: Durrr in process of losing 60k+ in a chess bet.. good month for ra

One of my first comments was how intelligent durrr is, and I hope I speak for everyone when I say that being inexperienced in chess and lacking some basic fundamentals =/= dumb.




This is the point I wanted to make too.

I was one of the people who said Durr is clearly awful at chess, but I don't feel I was attacking or slamming him.

After seeing the first 5 moves of games 1, it is already clear that he has no formal training and most likely has never read a book on chess.

There is absolutely no shame in being a weak chess player under these circumstances, and no one is questioning his intelligence.

I do agree with Curtains that most people who think they could beat him with a rook advantage are mistaken. They would surely put up a better fight though.

In fact, I think it would take a very strong player to win outright a majority of the time. You would have to count draws as wins for most people to have a chance.
