    I believe you are an old poster with a new name.

    New people don't come in the forums sprouting off like you.

    You obviously were a mouth piece in my opinion.

    Oh yea, if I happen to be wrong which is seldom my apology and Welcome to the site. 😛

    My loss will be due to Suzianne distracting me.
    Well, as it was me sir who provided you with the name 'Lame Duck' it might as well be me who validates it.

    Try playing someone at least 200 points higher than yourself and see how Cocky you are! 😛 😉

    Then it appears you may be Sandbagging your own rating, and no I've never Sandbagged my rating to that extent. Perhaps you should be in the Lemondrop Clan. 😛 😉

    No, I believe my current rating is a fair reflection of my playing ability. (But doesn't exclude me from beating higher rated opponents, now and then).

    So, are you saying it is something rare that happens? I too have beaten higher rated opponents but not 400 points higher. The point I was making was in your 2 wins your opponent was roughly 200 points lower than you meaning you actually should win those the majority of the time. Having said that, I do believe 200 lower or higher is fair in a Challenge, providing both are playing at their TRUE rating.

    His rating wasn't 200 lower than mine when I played him. Obviously. Our clan only does fair challenges. It's one of our core values.

    What was it then? It wasn't far from 200 points lower. You said yourself you've beaten a player around 2200, so he would be very low rated. Especially if you beat those 2200 players on a consistant basis. You certainly haven't done it on here, you've only played 256 in 3 years isn't it? 😉

    I know you don't play many chess games, now throwing insults will not help your argument~! 😛 😉

    You don't even know what his rating was starting the game do you?
