Lol, do you have 1348 rating, if i am almost blind you must be the same, the comment was about rger 21 !!
Haha...my eyesight is pretty bad for kid..
There's this little "quote" button, in which you can direct your statement towards someone. Your comment had no quotes, and was right under mine. I don't even care enough about my standard to look it up/
You meant young internet population know OTB and other 1000000 internet new abbreviations ! Btw here in Serbia whe spoke Serbian and when we say about ratings it means your OTB or real chess for me, nobody will say about internet rating altough i remember that my brother said to me 2 years ago( he is FM with 2350 now but had 2430 20 years ago ) that some kids with 2250-2330 OTB praise the 2450 rating in "playchess" and he said to them that he had 2700 there
Still generalizing about young people (me) and amateurs (me)...
Obviously online chess ratings aren't accurate...otherwise you would be an amateur ;).
Read "Grandmaster vs Amateur" Quality Chess 2011, you will see that you and your brother are considered amateurs. Even IMs are considered amateurs.
I agree about blitz, just for relax but if you still play why not learn something from better player ? Btw i am deliberately playing blitz with no add time ( bonus ) to make myself to see more tactics because my eyes, that is my main problem, blundering, but if i manage to do something i will only play with add time ( bonus ), this blitz i can play 3 times in a week in my city OTB with many GM and IM are taking part.
The original poster, joseph_stalin was talking about how rematches are supposed to be for "getting back blood"(or whatever it was). Yeah I agree with you it's beneficial to play with a good player , but you seem to stereotype all amateurs and amateur internet players.
The post is now getting off topic, and it's starting to be about amateurs and online chess...
Wel, that with IM maybe is right but somewhere must be line, i meant in philosophical way, i played ( he even more ) many tournaments, beat GM and IM, getting prizes in tournaments, getting money from clubs, playing in chess clubs blitz with amateurs all night giving advantage in time or material or both to be faire ( ok, you always try to find conditions that little advantage is still on your side ! ) so i cant be amateur. Btw many of use do this and play real good chess, former Yugoslavia was by far second country in the world in chess, only USSR was better, i remember when foreign IM are came in our tournaments they said that our good CM ( candidates for master ) are equal to them !
Just take the points and run
Ask Pavel Eljanov, Boris Avrukh, Tiger Hillarp Persson, Peter Heine Nielsen or Mihail Marin.
They will consider you an amateur.
Someday when you become a professional GM, you will of course stop being an amateur. Now you are an strong club player that plays in tournaments.
Well i am almost 50 and not interested in chess any more, only poker so i never will became GM . I just meant there must be some big difference between me and you, nothing personal. Btw i analyze with Marin long ago my game that was interrupted one hour and then continued ( that was tempo that was played long time ago, break for dinner and some anylyze, good times ). When we speaking of rematches can somebody say to me why i played with same player ( maybe because he is from USA, NM and premium member , i give him rematch after 1:0 for me, after 2:0 i click new 5 min and he show again, then he win on my forget variant and on 3:1 for me i click DECLINE and new 5min and he show again !!
I though you were a teenager. That could have explained your behavior.
now new behavior, you are all right ( but no for reasons that you think, more because there are no players with less then 2100 with class ) that USA NM wanted to play when he losing 0:1, 0:2 and 1:3 because he is losing rating, on 2:3 he left ofc. Next game USA with 1850 losing first game and want rematch and on 1:1 when i want rematch he disappear. And next German with 1820 winning first ( ofc completely lost position because here is 8.20 AM and i not sleep at all ) and ofc not wanted rematch ! So from now one i dont play rematches too, ty for open my eyes ( but from completely different reasons ). Just tell me on PM when you started to convert that yours internet rating in money which you faught hard
"there are no players with [than] 2100 with class"-uarefunny.
Sure about that? Because it seems like there's one >2100 who doesn't have any.
Oh wait...ur rating is <2100...<2000 even as I'm writing...
And if ur talking otb, then that first statement is totally wrong. 90% of otb serious players have plenty of class, no matter the game result.
If you feel so strongly, why don't you say instead "most players under 2100 dont have class", although that would still mean a majority, and I disagree with that. US players may not be the best, but they are definitely the most polite.
i think that players who rematch are the better players.... not because they can win or lose but because they allow the other player a chance to win or lose again and play a new style. especially after they see that you made a odd or "dumb" blunder. some players dont want a fun hard game they just want the free points thats why they play people that are way lower in rating. that is my opinion.
Yeah. Rating is prestige. But blitz and especially bullet ratings fluctuate like crazy. It's stressful. One time, I had a winning streak of unrateds (and my opponents were clearly trying) that would have boosted me to 18-1900s bullet. I lost another streak later on of about 10 games or so (not a streak, I won some, but lost most).
yep and if those games make you mad that you are losing then its a good time to stop and review your games so that you dont have the same mastake game after game. i find that i tend to make the same blunder multipule games in a row so i sometimes enjoy the study of all the rematches that i have played. how hard can it be...... perhaps one might ask how serious and dedicated you are to haveing boat loads of fun!
Well, to be honest, those mistakes are mainly basic tactics and such...
If I were to fix them, as in not play them anymore in the actual games anymore, I would lose in 15 moves (on time).
When you find yourself thinking in bullet, you know you are in trouble. Advice from a really strong blitz/bullet player.
I just lost 50 points because ( except i not sleep at all ) i am frustrated, they all want rematch when they are losing rating here, but ( because of my better rating ) when they win and result is 1:1 or 3:2 for me they runaway. And when i dont want rematch because he is from USA and they do that 95% he said many bad things.
And btw just to comment this, i started to play here only couple of month ago, i prefer OTB 1000 times more, but wanted to say that chess is much different in my time, amateurs then did not play good tactics, just play an open game and easy win but position like Queens gambit ( or other positional play ) with white they all very good until 25 move. Now is different which is much harder for us older ( and ofc especially for my bad eyes ), all here play very good tactics, openings are almost all gambits and they know theory in that what they play very good and it is very hard to play blitz, in OTB rating tournament will be much different, 90 minutes and bonus time + preparation because pairing are day before the game or in morning !
