@Dan Durham,
Most GM's don't compete "at this level".

@NYTed, This page is using classical ratings, but the official website (I am not checking it, but since you said so, I certainly believe you) is almost certainly using either the official FIDE rapid and/or blitz ratings.

I think the Chessbase rating are off as they don't agree with the ratings on the official website.

I could've been a GM and competing at this level. I once beat Larry Remlinger but lost and drew against underrated low experts at the old Riverside (CA) Chess Club. Now, thanks to the Wall Street Bailout, I am a winner.
