    obviously if you beat him he wasnt using a computer to cheat, because you are rated 1700 and even a very weak chess computer running on an iphone or something is 2300+

    Played through it and he looks like a beginner making more or less random moves at all stages of proceedings.*
    Yep that guy couldn't be any less of a cheater XD.

    I've found it's so much easier to win on lichess than on chess.com. It's easy to maintain 1800 on lichess but wouldn't be able to do that on chess.com. Idk if it's me or something because ok, the ratings on lichess are very inflated but I actually feel like I play worse on chess.com, it's weird...
    It may be partially due to a superior engine but the analysis confirms i play worse on chess.com, i.e. more blunders and mistakes etc. My blitz on there is like 1280 now, and I find the 1300s seem to be more tactically aware, aggressive, and knowledgeable about openings (i.e. they know main lines and stuff) than some people up to 2000 on lichess, where my blitz is around 1750. I wonder if the layout can have any affect cos that's the only thing that's different. Indeed when I play OTB chess I play worse for a period because I'm not used to the playing arena looking like that.

    Yep I actually thought it might just be the layout, which is why I'm now trying playing green board alpha pieces on chess.com like I do on lichess. Currently playing a standard game now so I'll see how it goes .

    Ikr, if I play OTB now I will blunder like crazy just because it's so hard to process the pieces looking like that XD.

    It's funny playing against weaker players; if you blitz out your moves from the start they'll try to do the same to show off/one-up you but if you suddenly start taking a lot of time with each move they do too XD (and this is in standard chess lol).

    I've got my bearings a bit, stopping the rot but still low (think GBP/USD lol) but I used to be around 1400 on Chess.Com in Blitz and Lightning and am still struggling to break 1300. I don't see why I would have gotten worse, I know all that I knew then and I am certainly well practised at the moment. Standard tends to be quite a bit higher, haven't played that in a while.

    Over the board blitz is especially bad. Well, the absolute worse is bughouse. At Warwick Chess they always want to and often do play Bughouse tournaments and I just hate it lol.

    Ok at least 1450s still blunder on chess.com; he played Re8 blundering f7 after about 5 mins of thought! https://www.chess.com/livechess/game?id=1703694940
    Hopefully I can maintain a solid 1700 soon, I like this whole alpha pieces green board thing, makes it feel like I'm on lichess so I play better XD.

    Not when you're just getting mated lol. Most people are better than me at Warwick. Hopefully getting some proper tournament experience will make me better next year.

    Standard ratings are higher for sure.
    I see a trend in my ratings

    Correspondence chess (24 hours to 3 days a move): 94th percentile
    Rapid chess (usually 15|10, up to 60|0): 85th percentile
    Blitz chess (around 3 to 10 minutes): 75th percentile
    Bullet chess (less than 3 minutes): 72nd percentile

    Do more good players play faster time controls or are these results telling me something about my play..

    Have you played chess competitively lol
    I suppose it was a short game and I moved too fast early on, missing the queen check then it was a worthless and exploitable position

    Can't see any and neither can the (probably relatively weak) lichess analysis engine lol
