At times, online chess becomes all about rating. The actual games don’t matter anymore… and all you want is rating, fast, “cheaped” out unfairly, stolen - simple brutal vindication. You are told, “Relax man, rating is just a number”. Who wouldn’t want a high rating? The phrase was said countless times by low rated patzers who given up real chess and moved to losers. Play enough losers, and you’ll become a loser yourself. Losers never sleep.

Bettingbot chips don’t matter? Said by a bunch of “channel-280-people”. Rich sonuvabitches. “Its not real money.” Well how close to real money can you get? Chips don’t matter when you are broke? Actually, its the other way around: chips don’t matter when you have a lot. Because numbers grow. What I want is a challenge - not something trivial or something impossible - a place where numbers matter.
