That could make a difference. In my OTB games, i sometimes get into bad positions because I don't know what the right opening moves are and then I have to comeback from a bad position.
But on here, thats not the case.
I do use the analysis board and databases here. So that could account for it.
Yes, his endgame was horrible. He had a slight, but not winning, advantage which went away and came to a win for me with a couple of glaring errors. Did you mean I'm better than or worse than 1500 OTB?
When I first started playing on this site, I wasn't taking as long as I do now to move. It also took me a little while to get warmed up to playing coorespondece, as this is my first time. So I hovered around 1600 for a while when everything just started to click and I started being more careful after a couple of stupid losses. I had a lot of games against 1600's at that point, all of which I won. So I had an approximately 30 game winning streak before I finally got some tougher opposition.
