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

But how many players actually do this the other way?

After playing an 1800 they actually say, "but he was really more like a 1500-type player."

This just doesn't seem to happen nearly as frequently.

Beat an 1800 = "Hey, this guy was a real 1800!"
Lose to a 1400 = "But he plays more like a 1700. That's why he beat me."

Many players over-estimate their own playing strength and do the same for their opponents to justify their belief that they are stronger than their rating indicates.
