    I don't play against unrated players... if they beat me doesn't my rating take a huge hit?

    Besides, I have to keep 2 game slots open so I can't at the moment.

    What is your rating around?

    Try posting an open invite.

    I would play you, but right now I just don't have a free slot.

    You are a man (or women) from an unknown nation, and the words 'challenge me' are all we know of you.
    And you open with 1.Nf3, which could mean you are 'OK' or it could be you prefer the flexible first move of modern masters - non-commital yet strong, showing a broad grasp of opening theory and an ability to transpose to whatever your opponent dictates.

    So why would I play you? OTB you may actually be rated 800, or you may be rated 2200. Yet I only risk losing rating points, as provisionally rated players don't do much for the old total.

    This is the reason for our scepticism.
