    internet randomly slows down while I'm winning against someone way worse, it shows their counter going down, it gets to 0 then suddenly their move is made, their time goes up, mine goes down, I make a move, my timer continues anyway, I time out, 107 rating points gone. gg lichess

    Haha. I know I'm better than plenty of people I know, but I also know plenty of people better than me. I really want to become properly good but haven't had much chance to play in a while.

    How does this tournament work?

    Would you like to join the tournament thing? (it's not as serious as you think )
    If so what's your chess ability level? Beginner, intermediate or advanced/expert?

    Okay so I try find you someone with similar chess abilities for you to play against. So shall I class you as intermediate? ('cause you're not a beginner and you wouldn't class yourself as advanced/expert...would you?)

    I feel as though I'm still pretty terrible at chess, but hopefully I would be considered intermediate.

    I know what you mean, it's one of those things where the more aware you become of what the top standard is, the worse you feel lol

    Yep and despite the fact that I feel I have a lot of potential, I've never had to chance to really practice and get familiar with the game.

    Yeah, I wish I'd played more when I was little - I'd (hopefully) be a lot better than I am now. *shrug* Ah well.

    Yes thanks Electro i would. My score is about 1700, on lichess, but i think that can be deceptive. I have the ability to teach children chess, which i always think is the sign of a good player.

    Expert lol, I have been forsaken.

    EnglishMuon You mind if we play in like half an hour? I just need to quickly do something. 10/15min timer game ok? Idk if there's some kind of standard rule for all the games in this tournament.
