    hello mate,I didn't play chess at chess.com;maybe earlier,Im not sure.
    I play at playchess.com My rating varies from 1600 to even 2100(bullet) but it depends on many factors.Did I play for rating,am I relaxed,concentrated,how many beers in the blood :).
    I don't play bullet anymore because it can be very stressing.

    I love chess, I am self taught and I consider my self OK at it, I find my biggest flaw is were most people who play chess can think 3,4,5 or even 6 moves ahead I can only see 2 or 3 moves ahead and that's why I usually lose.
    Thanks
