It’s possible, but he’d have to play a... umm, non-standard schedule, and play it very well.

It's surprising that Barry has never hit 1040.

He's been between 1020 and 1039 every update since Aug 2001.

Talk about consistency. Dude's 49 and can still hang with the 2nd tier top pros in MPO.

Kenny's been above 1020 since even earlier, but his rounds played count has fallen dramatically and he has no rating since late 2017.

Climo's been dealing some injuries the past few years.

McCray's another guy that's been 1039, and basically been 1020+ since 2005(1-1019 and 1-1017 in 2016).

Feldberg went 10 years with 1030+.

Doss almost 10 years with 1030+, just a couple 1029s and 1028s.

Anthon been 1020+ since 2006.

One thing to keep in mind when comparing players of the current era to Barry/Kenny/etc is that ratings weren't around for much of their primes. Kenny had been dominating for a decade when ratings first came into existence. His lifetime high rating might be even higher if ratings were calculated back in the 90s.

Looks like inflation to me.

A pond that is filling with water looks like it is shifting if you only look at one shoreline.

If both 1998 and 2018 represent samples taken from the same underlying distribution with a mean of 910 and a standard deviation of 37,

the maximum rating among the 1,140 Open men in the 1998 sample would be expected to be 1032 and

the maximum rating among the 9,102 Open men in the 2018 sample would be expected to be 1051.

There may be ratings inflation, but not nearly as much as it would appear without taking into account the larger sample size in later years.

The rich get richer while the poor get poorer.

I noticed that there are 4 players rated over 1040 and 13 total at 1030+ signed up for LVC. Whats the most 1040+ players in one event if it isn't this one?
