My Two 2014 Chess Resolutions and Two Personal Goals

    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.

    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?

    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! Cool
