May be Jose can play Ok OTB

Jose Silva is currently 2436 at rapid and 2416 at blitz on lichess.org: https://lichess.org/@/JoseSilva

That's equivalent to about 2272 FIDE according to dudeski_robinson's conversion formula (FIDE Rating = 187 + Lichess Classical Rating X 0.38 + Lichess Blitz Rating X 0.48).

Not too shabby for a 60-year-old, considering that Mirko Rujevic is the top player on the ACF senior list at 2197.
