    Looks like you are on quite a win streak. Now tackle some like-ranked opponents, that usually straightens it out for me pretty quick.

    My fellow chess players, Im currently doing my own personal investigation into the psychology of the human mind, how would one react to such a big statement, especially of a chess player, whom seem to have big egos. my fellow chess players, I love you all and I am willing to play and beat any one of you, god bless.

    this has always fascinated me as well, the correlation between chess and egocentricity. It is understood that one cannot help make mistakes, we are after all imperfect and prone to aberration, therefore to brow beat ourselves for silly mistakes seems to me to be counter productive. secondly there is the experience of losing not because of our own mistakes (blunders), but because our opponent simply outplayed us. Why are chess players such bad losers? Indeed, winning is fun and loosing is not, however it seems a strange phenomena, that somehow our egos prevent us from admitting that our opponents plans were better, his calculation more exact, his knowledge, technique and powers of imagination superior. what is with that?
