    I was wondering if anyone would like to play me. I am having trouble finding people because I rattled off 8 wins since I started. Not bragging, just saying that many might be put off and think I was cheating or something. In Canada here at my last tournament I was 1750 rated but beat some 1800's and a 1900. I know the best way is to join, which I'll do once my credit card gets here but that may be a week or two. Anyway, good luck in your chess endeavors everyone.

    It's not that they're afraid to play you, its just when your a "p" player the person playing you gets very few points if they win and lose a bunch if they lose, so theres not much to gain by playing a "p" player.

    I started out my membership with a lot of wins and yet I had no trouble finding opponents.
    I didn't end with 1900 but noone knew then my real level.

    Keep on.
