Well Tom posted a video of himself and it is pretty clear he looks like a 3.0-3.5 level player so why would anybody have problem with that?

If someone claims they are 6.0 player I can see some posters being more skeptical as there are very few of those people who posts on these forums. At 6.0 you should be basically at futures level and beat most D1 players and hang with the top ones. Personally I don't care one way or the other what level you claim to be. But if it bothers you, post a video of yourself, link your results tournament play so others can see it.

Most high level players 5.5+ I know usually don't talk about level at all because at that stage NTRP is pretty meaningless. NTRP is kind of irrelevant if you are playing only futures and open level events.
