AN EXPLANATION ABOUT THE ARTICLE
I'm very happy for the article about chess and my profile that came out today in Detroit's Metro Times. However, there are a few inconsistencies (as is normal in any article written by someone who is not part of the chess scene): I am no way number 100 in the world. Rather, I'm number 100 in Brazil, and the 50th highest ranked Brazilian player, if we only count the ones that are active. Also, I am not an international master. This confusion occurs because the U.S. considers any player who has an American rating between 2200 and 2399 a master (above that it's senior master). My FIDE rating now is 2291. Readers of Portuguese, please see below.
