Just finished my last ever Corr. chess game. In 45 years I've played more than 800 games, won numerous tourneys, maxed at 2650 elo, got 11 Grandmaster norms, became 28th World Champ, and hopefully contributed at least as much as I got from playing it. Amici sumus!

Congratulations, Leonardo! That is an impressive career, with a lot of great results. They will miss you :smile:

Hey there.
Congrats! I'm sorry to hear that you're giving it up. I know you said you were done when that final guy came to his senses.. but I was hoping you wouldn't.

Enjoy whatever is next, my friend.

Chief

well yes, that is impressive! What are your plans now? I guess you don't quit chess completely?

There's still the ordinary part of life to spend my time to :grin:
I'll be watching TCEC and playing a game or two myself online, that's about it.

What will you do with all your free time now?

The time has come for the proverbial resting upon the laurels.

Sounds well deserved!



I found this about his signature quote.
Very sorry if it has nothing to do with what he meant.

Yeah that's where my signature came from. In 2008. :grin:

Let me be the first to envy you on that. I've been trying to quit since 2015, at some point I even let all my games flag. Stopping playing seems like the hardest thing to do, I couldn't create a thread like this because I probably would be back in some game 2 years later.

Too bad we never got to play against each other, now we'll never know how a game would have went.
