Curtains,

Just curious if you have ever played against an Indian kid [probably 23-ish now] by the name of Vinay Bhat? If yes, what do you think of his game and can you beat him?

I know him. I haven't played him but my sister beat him

Honestly we have about the same rating these days. I was a bit higher ranked than him when I was actively playing, but now that I'm not, he's a bit higher ranked than me.

Also any expert rated player should be a favorite over the World Champion at rook odds IMO.




Always inspired by your confidence

And yeah, I'd crush a GM with a rook up. This isn't even a discussion.

but if i were, i wonder what would be a good way to handicap games??

Maybe a pawn for every 200 points in rating difference?

I don't think that would work very well. Guess there is a reason not many people bet on chess.
