    HI Brian,

    * this would belong to the help forum

    * if you set up an open invite click on "advanced options" there you can set rating limits.

    Cheers

    "My Settings" -> "My Challenge Settings" and change the parameters to the desired ones.

    Hi Brian

    You are getting "slaughtered" because you are not giving yourself a chance
    in the opening. That 2...f6 defence you are using is bad.
    2...Nc6 get the pieces out.

    When you have time check out:

    http://www.timeforchess.com/gamesexplorer/

    These are games played by 1400 players on here, see how they play
    the positions arising from 1.e4 e5.

    it will give you an idea what common blunders to avoid.

    Good Luck.

    When you set up the open invite, click the "Advanced Options" link. Controls for rating range are under that.
