If I understand the does and don'ts here I cant post any of the games I played against myself until I get my uscf rating over 2000.  I actually think this is a great forum. Lots of fun. 

As long as you beat yourself (preferably no draws), sure why not?  No violence though!

One of my coaches has apparently played a young Fabiano!

When he was a kid, Fabi was a constant presence at quads in New York and New Jersey, I know at least three people who played him back in the day. By all accounts, he was a very polite young man

I played and beat Rochelle Wu several times before she got rated. Needless to say, she would probably destroy me now.

Someone from my club emailed me today and told me they had beaten Irina Krush five times between 1992 and 1996.  His strategy was to play gambits, although he plays gambits against everybody.
