Inflated Rating Syndrome

May 4, 2009, 12:54 AM |

Does anyone else suffer from IRS?

Because of a streak of luck and some reasonably solid play, my rating has inflated to higher than where I think it should be. 

Is there something wrong with the rating system or am I just playing well at online chess... FAR better than my OTB game?   I think there might be something wrong with the rating system.

I am starting to think I should throw a few games to keep it in check?......
