I call “chess Hamsters”, players who have a particular love for this game, and for whom sharing it with friends is more important then increasing their ego or their Elo rating.
I declare today in this blog that I am the first chess Grand Hamster (GH) of the history.
Rating for chess Hamsters is not Elo but Ole! (never forget the exclamation !). It depends not only of strengh but also imagination, bravery, fantasy and madness.
You can easily imagine that people playing the game 1.d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. cxd5 cxd5 3.e3 e6 can’t be rated over 1500 Ole! (but it’s not a shame ;))
Hamsters, this blog is yours !
