so i realized something today...i have no problem beating 1700s on ICC because i believe that i can play with them. it's gotta be the same this weekend. 1700-1799 is my feeding ground, 0-1699 are gimme points. i know i can play at that, admittedly not very lofty, level. must kick ass.
i'm thinking about taking up the tarrasch v. the french after this tourney.
