    Beating the International Masters

    I have started a new YouTube series called Beating the International Masters. This is a continuation of my earlier series Beating the Grandmasters. I analyse my own games; the first video features a game I played against Mirko Rujevic in Elwood, 2006.

    Unhappy Mr Beer Beer,you are a bit full?

    Hey Beer Beer,if you have only beaten Grandmasters ...on the internet,then as everyone knows that that means absolutely nothing.And you say you have beaten many (suggesting 10s to 100s) Intenational Masters name them all .Is that over the board or ...."on the internet".Have you even played in the Australian Championship.I think you are ahead of yourself!

    Give him a break, his youtube videos arent meant to be that serious. He's just showing how anyone could beat up a GM or an IM if they believed it. I reckon thats a pretty good message for anyone to take on board.

    For the record, he is a really good player, one of the highest rated juniors in Australia and if he continued playing he would be a fantastic player, so he has the right to say whatever he likes.

    I don't know that much about chess but I do know actions speak louder than words. if those really are IMs your beating well done. Otherwise, your a fraud.

    Just kidding. Even if they aren't IMs I'm sure their very strong.

    I'm sure they are real IMs but most of the wins are in 5 min blitz on ICC, which increases the chances. Nevertheless, BDB is not so far below IM strength himself.

    Now that I've worked out who he is, I have to agree, he's a really talented player. Would be great to see him back playing in tournaments some day soon.

    I remember the 2006 Elwood Championships. He won that tournament, finishing ahead of many GMs and IMs and other strong players including Daryl Johansen, Guy West, Stephen Solomon, Leonid Sandler, Mirko Rujevic, Jesse Sales and many others.

    That list includes quite a few IMs.

    Nice videos, even in internet chess you have to be pretty good to beat an IM or GM.

    I have not had the pleasure to defeat any GMs and very few IMs over the board, and I do make it clear that most of the games mentioned are played "on the internet". And perhaps it does mean "absolutely nothing" if I beat someone on ICC, but I never claimed that it means anything. I am merely trying to create entertaining videos to capture people's attention. And many of them are set up as puzzles, so they can also be used as training.

    As for proving my games, I have added a way to check it on my YouTube Channel. You can find the complete games for everything that I have put up as videos (except for two OTB games).

    Yeah, I know it's not that difficult to beat titled players online, but I wanted to create a title to capture attention. One character trait that I hate is arrogance and I have tried to avoid it as much as possible in my videos (despite the title of the series suggesting otherwise).
