I’ve done it!
With a little winning streak of three games in a row, I just hit the 50.1% percentile in rapid chess at chess.com.
I am officially average, and I am the 12,564,810th best player in the world!
I’m really glad my nephew suggested having a game of chess last Christmas. And I’m glad I engaged with it, rather than playing a quick game and forgetting all about it.
I always thought I wasn’t clever—or maybe dedicated—enough to play chess. Turns out that was not true.
I’m genuinely surprised by how many life lessons come out of chess, too, and how day-to-day problems can be seen through a new lens when you regularly exercise your strategising skills.
Officially average! Hell, yeah!
