I don't know. All I know is I can easily amass - with a little time - a 1700 Blitz rating anywhere. But, I have had a heck of a time getting a 1700 rating on RHP. I don't know if it's because I play too fast... or what... I don't know. But, I do knot I'm between 1500-1700 across all forms of chess. So, I don't care. That's good enough for me at 34 going on 35 in May. I don't think I'm willing to put the study time and the energe into getting a 2000 rating. Maybe, 1800 - but no way 2000. I know what it takes, and I'm just not willing to do it, you know?
