Kibitzer's Corner
May-16-08  Knight13: No kibitzking on him? No kidding. He's 17 and owns a 2300+ FIDE rating, and a 2400+ USCF.

  Benzol: Are all USCF ratings 100 points higher than their FIDE equivalents?
May-16-08  Karpova: <Benzol>
Not always but they are still inflated. Compare:

  Benzol: <Karpova> Interesting. Thanks.

  GrahamClayton: Ludwig burst onto the scene by winning the First Saturday tournament in February 2009, and picking up a GM norm, but according to the database does not seem to be active in 2010. Is he still playing?
