And on this point.... I'll go bouts getting creamed by 1100-1300 players, which brings my Yahoo chess rating into the 1200 range.
And tonight I played a 1500 player (with my low rating), and demolished him with Evan's Gambit. I think we were about even, but with Evan's Gambit if black blunders the opening white ends up throwing the kitchen sink at you.
So because of my low rating he accused ME of cheating lol.
I think there's so much cheating on Yahoo that the whole rating system is screwed up. It's possible that some of the players I thought were cheating, are actually higher rating players than their score.
