    Two wins against higher rated opponents and suddenly it doesn't look so bad.

    Yeah, I won 5 in a row against higher rated opponents and my rating went up very quickly.

    I then dropped a whole piece and had to fight for a draw against someone lower rated.

    A hilarious 73 move win against an 1100 rated player.

    b5??!

    You were asking for it.

    The weird thing is I rarely use 5 minutes but I don't feel comfortable playing 5 min blitz.

    I played this one guy.

    Huge tactical blunders on both sides.

    3-1 to me.

    The game I lost I won a rook in the opening!

    A very amusing 3/0 game just finished. It has everything; greed, sacrifice, despair (mine, then his) .. and of course .. pawn promotion to a knight

    I play black, at move 32 I am a full 14 points behind!

    I'm finally gaining some blitz points.

    Still rated terribly though.
