A painful loss – and a long way to go

Yesterday I reached my highest standard rating on Chess.com ever. But after Three consequtive losses I have come back to Earth again. The last game I played was against a much higher rated opponent, and I was actually winning quite clear! Happy about how the game hade proceeded, I was nurturing my advantage when suddenly my brain melts and I blunder horribly. It is a very simple mistake, and one that I simply shouldnt make, no matter how Little time I had on the Clock to finish the game.
I chose to blog about this game because it shows me two things. One, that I am actually improving and giving higher rated opponents fair competition. Two, that I still have to work on my game and become more solid.
