    Finally! 1700 was my goal to reach last year, and it took me a little longer than I had wanted, but I've made it.

    Just wanated to brag a little...carry on.

    Ha, that'd be nice, but I'm staying conservative with 2000.

    Keep that rating is another thing.

    If you play 1...e5 I will win?

    Weren't you coming after me because I said 1...e5 was as fierce as 1...c5?

    You said 1...e5 was drawish.


    My profile has nothing to do with anything you've said. It's a reference to my using the KG and winning with it.

    I would say I dream of 1500, but it's much funnier to beat 1500-1700 players with a 1300 rating.

    1400 would be nice right now. Good job on the 1700.

    KG player hey.

    Curious here, do you play in OTB tournaments and do you play KG?

    I used to see it quite a bit before, but now it's so rare.

    I've played OTB - we used to have a club at my school, and I played it there. I considered those my most serious games. As for OTB - I still haven't found a good club and I've never got to play in a rated tournament. But when I do I plan to use the KG for sure - it's most effective OTB. Actually, it shouldn't be that good CC, but it is...

    I have made it now too!!! yeah me

    but... the bad news is that I have a few bad losses to lower rated players on the docket so I'll be back in the low 1600s very soon.
