You are right Socialista. I went down 15 rating points because I lost to a lower rated player several days ago. I went down to 1571.
Today I won a lower rated player and went up to 1580. I guess every thing eventually balances out.
I should just play the best and hope for the best.
Thanks to this thread I avoided buying 4 or 5 books 2 weeks ago
I am now at 1582 and I am slowly rising if I play people at my rating and lower. If I play higher players I lose more often that win.
Maybe my level is very close to 1600, I will try to learn a new opening and see if that helps.
Hmmmmm . . . . Sad state of affairs in my chess rating. . . .
I lost a game and drew another one to a lower players. So now I am going down some more. Guess the 1650 by the end of the year is not feasable.
In bowling my average is about 190 so that is acceptable. . . . .
Denver you are not playing any online game at this moment?
How many games did you used to have at the same time?
I still don't hsave a computer, only a kindlefire.
My chess goals are down the drain! ! ! I am at 1516 that alomst 100 ratings from January. I am so bad.
I like dislike the middle game! I like the first 10 openning moves.
BOWLING is going great , I'm at 196 Average! ! ! ! For a 76 year old guy that is great!
The chess goal doesn´t count now since you didn´t have a computer, so it was impossible to work in chess.com in a normal way.
And you exceeded your 190 planned bowling average.
So, congratulations, you did it!
good job on the average...
My bowling game is going good... back to about 150 average with not as much time invested do to Uni... new shoes aren't an issue... its actually my release and approach which no longer work as I can't exactly do the run i used to use.
I know this is slightly off topic... but, assuming that you've played enough games for your rating to stabilize, you shouldn't win 9 points for beating a lower rated player.
