    When going over my OTB games it always strikes me that my wins look so crappy,while my draws and losses look such torough tought out and well played games.
    I'm starting to think playing some bad moves increases your chances of winning

    Some of my games looked the same way when I was younger. What happened was that I sort of coasted in games I was winning, and fought ferociously when I realized I was behind. And I won a lot of games that I was behind and had a number of draw swindles too.

    In your lost games, your opponents played somewhat better than the opponents in the games that you won. So the overall quality must be somewhat higher as you didn't change in this equation.
