Re: Durrr in process of losing 60k+ in a chess bet.. good month for ra


I mentioned his strength as probably around 900-1000.

Sorry I missed that. Poor guy, he's probably an underdog to me at knight odds, let alone any titled player.


I would play anyone U1800 who wasnt some kind of blitz specialist in 3 minute chess with rook odds and expect to be a favorite, so its not a big surprise that you are losing to Fritz, since Fritz is much better than me at speed chess.

I'd expect to lose to Fritz in 3 0 too, which is why I played again - I started thinking about it logically and thought my memories had to be wrong. I'm not only not a blitz specialist, I think I play blitz significantly worse (relative to my rating) than long games, so the 5-1 score Fritz has over me so far this afternoon isn't much of a shock.

Now, on the other hand, if I played fritz with rook odds at 2 hours a side, I'd feel a lot more comfortable - 4 of my 5 losses were due to simple tactical oversights. I could be wrong about that, but I plan on experimenting after I grab some dinner with some 15 minute games, at least.
