Then Eebster, why is my turn-based rating significantly higher?
Because I play almost all gambits?
HAHAHAHA! Just try and answer that one, ROFL ROFL!
Your online rating is about 200 points higher than your live rating. I suggested it would tend to be about 100 points higher. I wasn't far off.
Sorry, I misread your post a bit... but based on my blitz rating... my turn-based rating is WAY higher! LOL--it's only the 'long' games that I've gotten 'lucky' and done reasonably well in!
So I almost wonder if the error is on the other side, after all!
I was judging by standard games, and looking back, your standard live rating is 119 points lower than your turn-based rating, so i was on the money. Obviously you are not a blitz player, but I don't see how that is relevant.
I really don't understand what you mean by "on the other side." Your online ratings are higher than your live ratings in all categories, as I expected.
You're saying he's "obviously not a blitz player" because his standard live rating is somewhat lower than his turn-based rating? That's absurd and condescending as well. Do you realize that online chess ratings are inflated in general and usually the difference is several hundred?
I would love to hear what kind of rating someone should have to qualify as a "blitz player".
I would expect a blitz player to have a good blitz rating.
