Hello everyone, I have a new exercice for you: Guessing the level of all the players (Black and White) for the following games.

The aim is to train your judgment skills and also prove how wrong (or good?) we can be at guessing the level of players. Indeed, I am often seeing people make statements as "this pro is far stronger than this one...", etc. However, how one can evaluate the strength of someone else not even near his level, but beyond his comprehension? That's the question I am asking and trying to solve there.

-Is destroying your opponent during one game makes it you far above his level or can he beat you the game right after by some points?
-Is our level the same during the day, the week or the month?
-Can you even guess the level of the players with some cognitive biases as White giving handicaps to Black (so is White really stronger than Black and if yes is the handicap correctly settled?), etc.

Here are some games:

Game 1: http://eidogo.com/#4a44Vxn6E

Game 2: http://eidogo.com/#29WHgX9uv

Game 3: http://eidogo.com/#HnoqahRz

No hints will be given about the time settings, date, etc. The solutions will be given after several answers. Don't forget to mention your level when answering please.

Good luck!

Bonjour (why are you talking in French :D ?),

Any ranking is fine if precised, but already finding if it's kyu or dan level is good enough. Then if you want more difficulty you can try to find more precisely the levels :mrgreen:
