  1. You cannot nor should you place an age on the human mind and its ability to learn. To even consider a prerequisite starting age for someone to become a GM is unknowingly placing a barrier on your own mind and bidding others to accept the same.

  2. I’ll never be a grandmaster, but at least I will get to see them play, thanks to social media. When I was young I listened to Bobby Fisher vs Boris Spassky on a friend’s Walkman. 😢😂 so happy technology is what it is today. 😊❤

  3. Oh man thats sad😢 i am 11 and i started playing chess when i was 10 now i am 500 elo guys can you tell me if it is good or not

  4. It's very easy to become a grandmaster
    You just need big brain

  5. It doesn’t matter if you start young it doesn’t matter. Chances are still low

  6. I just started a year ago, I’m 19 and I’m going to become a gm after 2 months

  7. Chigorin was 24 when he took up chess seriously

  8. Honestly, you don't want to be very good at the game, because then you won't be able to find any people to play with…

    Chess after all is a GAME. Like monopoly is a game… If you are so good in monopoly that nobody likes to play with you then you will hate it.

    Be glad that you are bad because that's where the fun is. Playing bad chess vs other bad people at chess = the most fun.

  9. I am fine with my 600 ELO. In this rank we are very unpredictable and blunder a lot. They never know my next move, hell I don't even know my next move😂

  10. me starting at 21
    these frs demotivating me

  11. So, what are my chances starting at 45? Lol😅

  12. gonna prove them wrong (I have 451 elo and break down after losing)

  13. it’s mental. you can do it at anytime as long as your mind and body healthy

  14. I turn 16 tomorrow, perfect timing, GM here I come 😂

  15. I really doubt it with the current level of competition becoming a gm after starting at 15 is almost impossible unless you are a genius

  16. There's GMS who never played till later in life and became GMS

  17. So basically I have no chance at any matter level at 40?

  18. This is true for everything. You can’t become a master at an instrument if you don’t play it all your life, or a top rated athlete in any sport for example. But that doesn’t mean you can’t become good, or even super good, just because you cannot become the best of the best.

  19. I just started playing chess in three months and I'm 16
    Now I'm 500 elo 💀

  20. Here, Alex you seem quite tall. I’ve never noticed you appearing tall until now. So, are you tall then? Nice manners here.

  21. I start play at the age of 8 😅 sorry my english is bad

  22. I started learning chess when i was 32, so I guess its just a dream to even become an IM😂😂😂 Much more on a GM😂😂😂😂

  23. I guess now, with that amount of information on the internet, you can become a gm even later in life.

  24. ….. me starting to learn how to play chess at 23😭

  25. Of course. If you are past 11 years old there's no freaking way you can make money with chess as a career, so you're better off playing and enjoying chess as a hobby.
    Im rated 2200 in rapid , 2100 in blitz in online chess. So if its in fide, around 300 elo lower. I have no plan to play OTB chess . Just enjoying playing online and watching chess tournaments 🙂

    I started playing chess at 9 but not that serious.

  26. Ask the same question to magnus Carlson

  27. Why does youth facilitate being a GM? It's not a physical activity.

    Is it because of brain development? If you start very young, you build the neural path ways. After 20, those pathways are developed already and it's harder to create new ones.

    Could that be right?

  28. 17 years old damn two years too late

  29. see how the approach (3rd gm) of looking away and down and overall avoiding eye contact approach makes the interaction wierd and little uneasy for everyone
    solution : 1st gms approach ( JUST BLINK NATURALLY IF YOU FEEL AWKWARD BUT DON'T LOSE DIRECT EYE CONTACT AND HAVE THAT KIND OF PERSONA)

  30. To master Chess, you do not need to have a high IQ.

    To become a Grandmaster, you do; however, it is not a must to be good at chess if you are intelligent. In fact, your chess ability mostly depends on practice, and not intelligence. I know that IQ is not a great way of measuring intelligence; however, you can see that most chess gms do not have high IQs.

    Magnus and Bobby are around 190, Kasparov is 135 and Hikaru is only around 102. Most of the others are in between 100-120 scorewise (average).

  31. Women are just as smart as men, what a joke..

  32. You dont have to be a grandmaster to enjoy chess. dont forget, you have a life outside chess

  33. She trying so hard not to stare into Aryan’s eyes

  34. I am 14 years old and started chess at the age of 13 and still i am doing good my rating is 1700

  35. Hmm…. I need to find another hobby. I'm 20 years late…

  36. currently 22 and just started learning chess.. i just hit 800 last night and that was such an achievement bc I was in 300-ish couple months ago and i feel slowly improved but still i really enjoyed playing chess, i love the game and I wish im ready to start defeating the grandpas out there😂

  37. I started playing chess at the age of 23, Now I am rated 1950 FIDE. I doubt I will ever surpass the 2000 mark lol

  38. My friend is rated approximately 2300, and he started playing chess just a year ago is it rare or normal? he is just 16 years old and he started playing chess when he was 15

  39. Lol tari & her are too much beauty & hotness in the same frame. 😂

  40. I feel like people just don't understand how this reality works just because something isn't common doesn't mean it isnt possible. 😂😂

  41. I'm almost 50 and just started playing Chess, I don't care about being the best, just as long as I can win a few games and keep slaughtering all the new players.
