    I play here in part because people are more interesting than computer programs, and I don't have any hangups about ratings. Since you're a nonsub, send a game any time you have a slot open, and I'll be happy to play.

    As you get better, everyone you play will get better. A rising tide raises all boats!

    Well you said that 1700 was a "really high rating" if I recall correctly

    Dont be so mean

    Just because someone is swimming in the kids end of the pool doesnt mean they cant be considered a strong swimmer

    It just means they can only pop X amount of peoples water wings before they get thrown out

    I was being facetious.

    I thought that was pretty obvious.

    Everything is relative. I kind of liked the idea of someone classifying me as a border line strong player.

    If I can bench press 315 pounds does that make me strong?

    Having said that, I had a grin when I read that too.

    I have nothing but praise for CorrespondencePatzer's play. He had me in a bind right up until a seemingly huge blunder

    Will annotate game when finished
