Rants and Ravings from a Novice...

I've played a few good games today and a lot of not so good ones.  I have to admit that being home sick has actually been fun.  I'm still in the process of attempting to play "smarter" as one opponent put it and "aggressive" as another did.  I was dismayed however, when someone asked me what my problem was because my ratings were so low.  It's like, if your ratings are 3x that of mine and you know that you're evidentally a superior player, then why accept my seek?  Oh well, no worries.  It was a good learning experience.  My lesson of the day:  don't get distracted by what you see in the chatroom or by idle chat from your opponent.  In person, this is a game of focus as it should be virtually.


Now I'm off for more of the mentor online...
