I opted to play an unrated game today in an effort to play more for relaxation than for rating. I find myself afraid of playing players with ratings much higher than mine on Live Chess simply because of the time pressure. However, in a more relaxed setting I managed to make up the rating difference (ok... so it's only 150 points...) with some room to spare. Clearly this isn't going to be a perfect game, but I was happy with my play.
Any comments/suggestions/criticisms are welcome.
