As Paul explained the grades here and in the OTB world are vastly different.
I think a 1000-1200 RHP player will play far better than that OTB.
The 1000-1200 RHP player will make in a move, go to sleep, go to work,
pay the gas bill, flirt with the pretty waitress at the coffee shop, worry
about his mortgage. That night he will make another move.
No wonder their games are contaminated with gross blunders.
However, When the same lad plays an OTB game then there are no off the board distractions.
His mind is on the one game and it will be for the duration of the game.
So although your games here are littered with blunders (see below)
you should find your OTB games are of a better quality.
It’s not just the 1200-1400 players who suffer from this. It’s right up to 1800.
I’ve been looking at weaker players chess games for nigh on 40 years.
I have never seen some of the blunders in OTB play as those I have seen on RHP.
So beauroberts join a club and get a tournament under your belt.
Don’t worry about getting hammered, enjoy yourself and take a free lesson or two.
The more you play OTB the better a chess player you will become and as I said
you will play a better game with just one game on the go getting your undivided attention.
Of course I looked at a few of your games.
(stop flirting with the pretty girl in the coffee shop and take your time.)
HJM1 - beauroberts RHP 2014 Game 10442120
Black to move.
You played 3…g6 and after a few moves that had nothing to do with the position you were lost.
3…Ne5 is the obvious move here.
Queen kicking is good fun. These lads who bring out the lady far too early
often see her disappear off the board.
Here, let us see another RHP lad taking full advantage of this position.
Of course you know all the dangers of bringing a Queen out too early.
Here you moved you Queen no less than 7 times (on the trot!) in the first 11 moves.

White could have won Black's Queen on move 6. He missed it.
Not too worry, Black paid the ultimate price for pawn munching with a Queen.
