Getting Crushed at the Marshall
Rapid chess--particularly against people way better than me--isn't really my thing. G25|5, though I'm as responsible for beating myself as they are for beating me.
Apparently this affects my standard ratings as well as my normal ones. If I had gotten a game against someone my rating that I could draw or beat then I would probably still be just below 1600. As it is, I'm now like 1556 or something.
