Are you a decent chess player?

I have played my share of games and begun to strategize openings, mid game, and closing. I am not ranked in any way though.

My official rating is only about 1600 but I think I'm about 2000 in playing strength.
I don't play that often and haven't played in a tournament in over 5 years. I do play online though and had a 2300 rating on Lichess. I also seem to have a good understanding of positions. My moves tend to agree with GM moves most of the time. I know a few GMs personally (including a wc) and quite a few IMs. They seem to think I'm decent.

I have played chest for over 50 years and I would say I am a "decent" chesty player. That doesn't mean I play in tournaments.

No, I have been known to play nude, at a legal nude beach of course.

Had a change to play one of the reigning US chess champs about 25-30 years back. Needless to say it was a short game and I was bed so bad it was ridiculous.
He was in the center of circle playing 12 games at the same time. Each time he walked by my board and called out a move and don't think every even looked at the board. Apparently my playing was that bad.
But I still enjoyed it and would do it again if I got the chance.

Not in the slightest. I understand the fundamentals of the game, but I cannot strategize enough to be able to be good at it.

Not really, I'm still in my pyjamas.

I don't know the rules but if I did I am positive I would be a killer chess player! Talk about full brain power being used!
