    I had no idea about that stat NimzoRoy that does make me feel really good thank you

    I really like what you have to say Fingerly and i would do exactly that but without playing live just continuing my own study and maybe finally purchasing a chess engine to play against and analyze... i really need to work on my endgame, its just so boring i dont want to do it

    and it is because i love this game so deeply that i get so bent out of shape when i screw up, i go on what the poker players call "Tilt"! and drop a couple hundred points in an afternoon.

    Discipline is not my strong point which is why i need longer time controls

    LongIslandMark my hope is when i retire i could make it to master ~2000 so i wouldnt be quitting the game just retiring from Live play... i dont think i can improve under these conditions, i might need to step back and try a different aproach rather than stay the treadmill ive been on, i feel like the ~1300 rated players have actually all gotten much better; effectively lowering the rating, so end up not really improving our chess but just learning and forgetting more and more traps

    Does anyone disagree?

Until I get on here almost 2 years ago and realize In the grand scheme of things im not that good. which to me is unacceptable. I have to be "a decent player". I love this game too much to accept a "beginner rating". So my goal became to become an intermediate player. As of recently i hit 1500 in standard, 1400 in blitz, and 1200 in bullet. with a lot of games played in each catagory to truly justify those ratings.

    So i ask you fellow chess players: Have i earned your respect? Have i met my goal of becoming an "intermediate" player? Can i quit satisfied that i have accomplished my goal?

    As we all know the ratings on here are wierd. Sometimes inflated or deflated it all depends on the time control and who is cheating. And I accept i am not a natural at this game, and i know there are players rated much higher with little to no effort. So i leave it in your hands... the bloody mob! what say you? Am i a club level player? Have i proven i am not a novice?

    Is your name Carlsen? Or Anand?

    No? You are NOT good enough!! Request to quit is denied!

    If you're not the lead dog, then the veiw will always be the same.

    (Remember, second place is just the first loser!)Tongue Out

    There is no "i" in Quit!

     What u fail to see.....outside of a select few.Me, u and the rest of the good people on chess.com forums are all in the same boat...We love a game but are unable to really play well. Relax and find enjoyment in something u care about--chess.
