    Default Albert Einstein and Chess

    Here's a link re: Albert Einstein and Chess (I couldn't totally decide if this belongs more in the Non-chess related CFC Discussion Board Forum, since so much of the subject matter in the link is unrelated to chess):

    Thanks Kevin for a very interesting read. I have heard in the past that Einstein was a modest player, in the 1900 range. Does anyone know about that? Thanks.

    Here's the closest thing I found, so far, about Einstein's chess strength. Opinions(?) range from 1400 to 2000+ strength:
