The road to 2000 ELO. A strange dip in form

Recently, I have not been able to get out of a recent slum in form which has taken me to the depths of 1500 ELO and below.Usually I never struggle with maintaing a 1600 ELO rating on playchess.com but lately I find that I am finding it difficult to contain even 1400 ELO opponents.

I am getting rather discouraged and as a result my moves have suffered somewhat. I seem to be making much more blunders then usual.

Hmm.. I definitely need some time out to sort things out. I hope to be able to post some nice wins (and instructional losses) soon.

 

Cheers.
