    If I resume my playing and start a game of two in near future (with pretty long time controls) I will probably play at 1700+ level. And my rating is 995. Eh, who will play with me ? It would not be fair.. If I challenge 1600+ player, if he win, he gets 0 points for that, if I win he losses 32 points.. Stupid really..

    If you really feel this is important, maybe try playing mostly provisionals until you get your rating up around 1300.

    No problem, at all. One shouldn't be too concerned with ratings.

    Ask some of your clan leaders to issue us a challenge (to any of my clans), so we'll get one white and one black games.

    And good game.

    If memory serves me correctly, in another post you were bragging about having resigned most of your games, and being a 900 player....I recall telling you that...I hope you don't have many 21 21 games still going.

    P.S. where you have already been at 1650, it probably wouldn't come as a big shock to anyone that you would reach 1700 + !! In my eyes, it just made it look like you were Sandbagging to be perfectly honest with you!!!

    No, I am not

    I won't start any tournaments, it is too addicting and time consuming to play dozens of tournaments and clan games (at least for me, of course), that is why I resigned in the first place...

    Even better, I will start playing club games only where rating begins from the beginning
