I made it! (However briefly - LOLZ)
I thought that Caïssa would forever block me from reaching the 1800-rating level. Way back in the early 1980's, playing over-the-board (OTB), I could get into the lower half of the 1700's (USCF), but never higher. Too many mistakes, blunders, and poor technique. I had a couple of Expert-level performance ratings, only to toss won games away with apparent ease!
True, online chess is not as taxing as OTB, and I have time to find my blunders (usually) before I actually play them.
So I am going to record this, even if it is transitory. I feel that once I have broken through this barrier, I can do it again.
