Hi again, I am only 13years old with a online rating of around 1600. Is this 'OK' rating for me with this age and Am I gonna play pretty well in U-14 section?
You will be fine. Online 1600 is about right for uscf 1400. Good luck!
Avoid roller coaster sugar highs (puts you to sleep, or makes you 'wired' -- not good for clear thinking OTB). If you find your thinking's getting fuzzy, get up and do a brief walk to wake up your blood circulation and brain cells.
But yes, online 1600 ought to do fine for U-14 (a better choice I think than the unrated section which may easily have a sandbagger or two).
@Irmall01 Thank you for your advice. However, I'm not going any tournaments yet. Just asking lol :)
@sftac Thanks for your advice! I think it will be great too!!
