When you join you play an unrated welcome game. You start rating is 1200.
Even though I won that game as it was unrated I am still 1200.
I have managed not to play any other games on this site since August,that is untill yesterday.
I was challenged by a 1351 player.
I thought ok i will give it a go 151 rating points higher it may be a good game.
His play was awful.
But i had to stop myself playing as bad.
Thats been my problem.
I did not so much win the game he lost it.
