I completed an OTB event yesterday

Yes, I once again gained a lot of rating. Unfortunately I lost the first game from an equal endgame. Then I managed not to lose the rest tournament. In fact, I was winning in all of them. But I somehow threw two games and made two draws. Still I gained 88 ratings. So my new Fide rating is 1676!!happy 

I also noticed I play a lot slowly in OTB tournaments and I generally play a lot better in OTB largely because I play it seriously.  Here is my last game:

I could accurately predict his whole middlegame at least 5 moves ago and that never happened before. So I calculated brilliantly. I never calculated so long lines in 5 minutes. It was unbelievable that I saw that the e4 pawn was falling when I played Rf1. I am very happy with my performance. 

I am gaining my ratings in a massive rate. I gained 226 rating in last 3 tournament. Unfortunately, in my village, I do not have many 1700+ player. So my rating increase may stop nowfrustrated. But I will try my best. I was 38th rated player of the tournament out of 50 and managed to finish 14th . So I am happy.

Why does the moderators change the category so often? Now if I click on the notification, it shows error because the previous link is no more applicable. It is annoying
