triangulator As Little Richard say: I feeeeel good!, :-)

I'm not afraid of anyone, OTB or postal, I don't have an official rating, but OTB I've defeated, in blitz an in standard time control, players over 2300 FIDE rating, including some exchampions of my state and had made one draw in blitz against IM Florentino Garméndez, friend of mine and considered by GM Walter Browne, some yaers ago, as one of the 19 fastest players in the world.

As Postal Chess is concerned, I have the honor of playing in this moment against some of the big shots of GK, and as I said to my friend and terrific opponent cairo: "I feel like Houdini!, I don't have more cheese, I want to leave the mousetrap!", :))

Best regards,

Andrés

The best advice that can be given while playing someone rated much higher (or lower) rated than yourself is: "Play as usual"

If you are going to start burdening yourself with thoughts like: "This guy is a patzer, so I can try so-and-so, which is a crappy move, but lets go for it anyway" or alternatively: "wow, this guy is too good, I have to give up the opening line I usually play for something more solid" - nothing good will come out of it.

Playing against 300 points higher rated player I feel like punching my head to a brick wall! The maneuvers just don't seem to succeed.

I dont mind playing people 300 points or more below me here on gameknot. In otb games though i prefer not playing them.

These days.... .....playing much lower-rated players is the only chance I have of even saving the game. :/

I find it easier otb than here. Im yet to beat someone over 2000+, yet Ive beaten people otb that are 2100+
