    Hey everyone!

    I just started playing chess and I really enjoy learning it, but I'm losing a lot of games on Live Chess!! I guess its because I always feel intimidated by my opponent's rating! is there an option to hide my oponent's rating till the end of the game?

    There is no option to hide the rating.  The best advice I ever got on this was from my old coach, who advised me to play every game as if it were against the World Champion, in the next-to-last game of a match where I was his challenger and was tied at the time.

    I'm sure that's great advice for someone feeling imtimidated by their opponents...

    Try setting a rating range 50 points above and below your own when you start a new live chess game. That way you know most players you encounter won't be wildly better or worse than you.

    Certainly not a crazy idea, I have heard of people covering up their opponents rating with a piece of paper, for the same reason until the match ended.
