Chess.com has my rating at 1800+ . Don't let that fool you. I'm closer to 1450.
You will find, that most of the higher rated players that are NOT premium members, I do well against. Why? Because I choose from the Master openings, from Chess.com's Explorer data base. I feel a good opening is a huge advantage.
If my opponent is a 1450+ premium member, who also uses the Explorer, they will usually beat me.
As a rule I NEVER time out. The only times I have timed out was when I really was "On Vacation" in a no vacation tournament.
In short, I'm very beatable. Whatever you do, just don't "time out" and give me FREE points. I won't quit on you if you don't quit on me.
I only play a handful of games at at time. I will spend a lot of time on the games I play with you. As I will play out various scenarios, using the "Analysis" board, on Chess.com.
Have fun playing chess. I hope to learn as much from you as you learn from me.
If you choose to become a premium member, use me "Tommmmm" as a reference. (You get a free month, for every new member you referr.) To Date, I've gotten ONE free month. Use me as a reference and you will enable me to my Second free month. Thanks in advance.
