I don't play FIDE rated chess yet, I just started in like 2019 or something but I've gotten pretty good, I'm rated ~1500 online in most time formats other than bullet, which I used to be a lot better at but my mouse sucks so I always lose on time. I would estimate my actual rating somewhere around 1200, which is like a mid tier patzer (chess lingo for someone who sucks), but I've been steadily getting better over the course of the last two years I've been playing. I was really bad at first though lol.

That didn't actually happen I don't think, as Nigel Short actually says now that he's certain it wasn't Bobby Fischer, but probably someone using an engine lol. It sounds hard to believe that it was an engine user in 2000, but I believe it and I think they did have them back then although I think engines were more beatable at the time. Bobby Fischer was easily the best player of his time, but in 2000 he probably was very out of shape and I doubt he could have obliterated someone as strong as Nigel Short while giving him a massive advantage in the opening.

You definitely don't need to know opening theory when you're lower leveled, you need to focus on not blundering your ****. When I was 900 in rapid a couple of years ago, I just remember how often other players would hang their pieces or walk right into a fork or play a random move when they had to defend against mate in one. That's how you get better when you're under 1000 is becoming more tactically sound.
