Are live chess ratings underated?

    I know that on chess.com CC, the rating is usually inflated by a few hundred points. But in live chess, especally blitz, doesnt it seem that you're under rated?  Im struggling to make 1100-1150, while in CC i am 1300. I know that in quick you're trying not to lose on time, and on long i have almost as much time as i would use in CC.

I believe in the more players there are the wider range of ratings.

Your long rating is higher than your correspondence rating.  I find I play worse on blitz because of the time pressure - i recently played a great 10 minute limit game with a mate in 4 minutes and had plenty of time to think where i needed to, but if I have 5 I rush it and play a lot worse.  I don't see why you'd expect blitz and CC ratings to equalise.

I think so too. My CC rating is 2040 and my blitz is around 1750. My USCF is actually in the middle, around 1880.

Blitz rating on other sites is normally 2200+ but here its only 2000 main problem is theres not enough players and some of the other players who are higher rated i have my doubts!
