I used to think that a 5.0 was a very accomplished player. I think a lot of people who post their vids up on youtube live in denial when they rate themselves way higher than they really are. Here's what I think of when I think of a 5.0-5.5 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvtZBct1Vqw Here is what you mostly see on the tube when people patronize themselves and live in a world of denial. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cGaZmBBYSo It's not just 5.0. You see this at all levels; 4.5, 4.0 and so on. Just that the really high levels are funny to watch when you see them miss a ton of easy shots or they play moonballs all the time. I like people who are honest. I hate it when people lie cause they need an ego boost.
