Drop in Ratings
Well, disaster (chess wise) struck a couple of days ago. I started playing something like 14 - 15 games at once, and wasn't paying enough attention to each game :( I lost some games where I should have won, where I had an early lead, and the net result was a drop in around 180 ratings points. In the last couple of days, I've slowed down, consciously, and started taking notes (using the built-in note function) so that I wouldn't lose track of where I was.
Of course, I am still going to lose a lot of games. I'm not a chess expert, but I hope to slowly build my rating back up into upper 1400's. And when I lose, I hope to make my opponent earn his win :)
