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. . . . .
