    Just thinking, It is great to play against strong players, but refreshing to play people at your level and below to remind you there are many players below you, and you do not suck! 

    I remember I went into a chess club and beat all there best players, only new realize all the players were week and I must have seemed like an expert to them.

    i loose my patience too quckly; as soon as I make a bad move I get grumpy and just want the game to end..

    Welcome Nick, you are new!  Try playing some on line chess like the three day per move games, most people do better with more time to think a move out. And you could read the many "How to improve your chess" post here on chess.com

    nerbo92> Don't take it too personal if you loose. Chess is a game and usually people don't learn anything when they are in foul mood. Loosing is an opportunity to learn about your mistakes.

    Get some chess books and reproduce GM games on a board. This can help you see patterns and how a game is ''played''.

    And geez stop with the Blitz! Beginners should focus on playing slow games.

    I suck, too.  A lot.  I blunder often and I don't have a firm grasp on the basics.  I can win games against my friends, and I love learning about chess, but when I actually try to apply it in games, I get stomped.

    But I'm going to try to keep at it.
