Interesting reference to Young G vs Nick Addante (recent picture of young G below). Original post date: August 2009
1/0 Ranking (overall for gayp and 3 move) for recently active players - guys like Ray, Sergio and wildman are not ranked because they don't play 1/0
5/5 Fredo - unstoppable at the moment in 1/0 especially 3 move, the last person to beat him in any kind of 1/0 series is Juan I believe. If only Jay would come back.
5/5 Juan - retired midnight, destroyed kevin (in gayp), mag (about even in 3 move), xeno and Chee in 1/0 gayp. Gives Fredo a run for his money. Juan is not as good in 3 move as he use to be anymore (as evidenced by losing to Max, losing narrowly to Mag and barely beating Chee 6-5-10 in 3 move...Juan once was able to beat Max, Jay and Daniel in 1/0 3 move and even beating Fredo some days). Can beat just about anyone in 1/0 other than Fredo.
4.5/5 Jolt - there was a time when jolt used to be better and faster in 1/0 but some of the light heavy wieghts has given him trouble in recent times. In long timers he is ranked at the top with the likes of Fredo, Ray and Jay but this is 1/0.
5/5 Darion - AKA the game, the game is very fast and dangerous. Looks like the game might come back, the game X Kevin in 1/0 3 move is expected to go down soon.
4.5/5 the warrior Max - he is not too consistent, sometimes he would kill light heavyweight players like Mag, Kevin, Chee but other times doesn't do as well. He can hang with the heavyweights such as the game and Juan in 1/0 more consistently than players in the light heavyweight division althought midnight seems to do well vs Fredo and Jay in 1/0 gayp.
Light heavyweight division:
5/5 midnight - midnight has improved a bit from 2007, it would be interesting to see him against Mike Couch who was a little faster and better than midnight in 2007
5/5 Daniel "Maganagi" - definitely the most improved player of the year, myself and Juan thought he was progging on and off at first because when we came back from draughts Mag jumped from 1400 to 1600+ and this was about the same time Saddam released Daileon. But all evidence points towards the possiblity that he really did studied hard, maybe after I showed him how to copy and paste games from Lee's guide onto checkerboard. A lot of guys are still in denial (a Brazilian is now better than them) and think Mag is an invention of Juan and Chee. Mag is extemely fast, as fast as Juan or even faster. Does pretty good vs Juan, Kevin, Chee, Chris, midnight, Max sometimes, raped Pete... seems to have problems vs Xeno, Darion, Jolt.
5/5 Kevin - Kevin has been very impressive lately, going back and forth vs the warrior Max, beating xeno more than he loss and destroyed chee in the most recent 1/0 series. While still not as good as Max overall, Kevin seems to have gotten a lot better than he ever was. Beating Q in two long timer series and recently dominated Camron. He can probably take midnight right now but unfortunately he might go back to jail soon and midnight is still retired from the Juan beat downs.
4/5 Xeno - I think he used to be a bit better
3/5 Qich - Q is not that bad in 1/0, he just have to play it more often
2.5/5 Swuss - seems to do well vs some like the game but not too well vs some such as Chee
3/5 James - supposed to be the man back then in 1/0 and seems to be improving since he started playing more, he'll probably be another modern day Camron
4/5 Chris - does good vs jolt, sometimes Max, Chee, Juan etc. but loses to Mag and midnight
2/5 Skinny - used to be one of the best but never was able to get it back
4/5 Rapor - he is pretty good and fast but should really start to play. Based on his past games vs xeno, Chee and Mag he is around the same level as those players more or less
4/5 Pete - if he stop being a pussy he could be a pretty good player. Used to do well vs Q, Chee (still does sometimes but he loses more often then wins), Daniel (lsd_infliction) back in the days
3/5 Brandon - an undercover investigation revealed that barrybugs is his secret practicing name
2.5/5 Josh - Josh is getting better since starting to play more again. He defeated my boy Mag 18-17 recently and seems to be doing good vs some light heavies, all around though Josh and Brandon still struggles vs some lower ranked players but are doing well against some top ranked players
2/5 Dan - division: light heavyweight - Dan is back but isn't really good at the moment
3.5/5 Alan - Alan and his little brother Arnold shares nicks so it's hard to know which one is which but I think it is actually Alan that has been playing good vs myself, xeno, kevin, midnight and mag.
4/5 vadim - his gayp is still good but he's bad 3 move but he hasn't really played in a long time
5/5 Gil - I beat him 35-10 when he first came back but only beat him 19-14 more recently, he is catching up to Alan. He recently went 0-2-8 vs Mag so I would say he's getting some rust off.
4/5 Arnold - I confuse him and his brother Alan because they share nicks and don't have much personality or English skills
5/5 juanito - juanito aka Juan junior, gave xeno all he can handle in gayp. The problem with him is he gets figured out after a while, just need to work on his crossboard I suppose.
3/5 cesar - doesn't really play 1/0 that much because he isn't fast, can take some of the fellow Mexicans like juanito and Gil in longer timer. If he played more often against good compeition he could move up in the rankings. He seems pretty skilled but not proven in 1/0
3/5 devon - use to be much better, now he lose to a lot of middleweights and even lightweights.
4/5 Young G - claims to me that he will not be running everytime he gets the first win anymore
2/5 coon - has replaced old school guys like optimus prime and tony355
2/5 himhim - himhim has been bumped to 2/5 for going even vs Nick in a series I was watching, himhim is finally improving a bit - arguably the fastest in kurnik today
3/5 nick - nick has been training with rapor and is pretty fast but his crossboard is same level as coon. Young G defeated Nick by a brutal 15-6-4 TKO today in an un-rated 1/0 gayp match witnessed by many. He has moved down one notch.
4/5 prd - super fast but sucks
4/5 playboy - use to be better I think but still decent, should be in the middleweight division but because of his current performance against other Brazilians he has to be in the lightweight division
4/5 como vc - could be the next Mag if he played more often, he was much better last fall, como vc also should be in the middleweight division but like playboy he has not played much and cannot be in the middleweight division because of current performance
2/5 tomy - with rapor's comment, I have reconsidered tomy's 1/0 ability. Technically Tomy is a pretty good middle weight in skill but his problem is his speed. He moves really slow and gets whored easily.
5/5 Jay - division: heavyweight - the last time he was active on kurnik he beat up Chee, midnight, doubled Max and went almost even vs Fredo. Was afraid of Darion's speed though.
5/5 Daniel - division: heavyweight
5/5 Couch - division: light heavyweight - probably the fastest player in kurnik history - was a faster and better version of 2007 midnight but midnight has improved a bit since, narrowly loss to Juan, got doubled by Daniel though but Daniel is a great player.
4/5 Rishi - division: light heavyweight - does very good vs Darion sometimes but overall he is around the level of a 4/5 player in the light heavyweight division
5/5 Luis - division: light heavyweight - when he played, he had Max's number
5/5 Dale - division: heavyweight - never saw him played 1/0 but I'll take Fredo's word that he's good
4/5 Lee - division: light heavyweight
4/5 Jecht - division: light heavyweight
5/5 Mikemx - division: middleweight
1/5 tony355 - division: lightweight
5/5 Zee - division: light heavy weight- retired permanently to specialize in draughts and has given several master and grandmaster players trouble in 1/0 timer
4/5 Spencer - division: light heavy weight
5/5 Jesse - division: middle weight
4/5 Monica - division: middle weight
