Thought i'd start this off. I predict my rating to be someone in the 1500s, and my rapid probably slightly lower... I THINK!

Mine will go down again maybe to 1880 or so (just guessing as I don't care enough to put it into the calculator).

I'd like to have two ratings, a summer rating and a winter rating. I think my winter rating might still be over 2000 if I did. :lol:

Hi Kevin,
I have found that when involved in chess administration / politics etc that your attention/passion/concentration whatever for over the board chess goes down. You may not want it to go down , the juices may still be flowing but the will to fight etc. personally over the board is somewhat diminished.
You have been very involved in ACF council , ACF Selections as well as the Australian junior in Hobart ( other chess things that I'm not aware of I'm sure) - it is little wonder you expect your rating to go down.
Anyway the observation has been my understanding of impact not on playing strength so much but on personal energy left to battle over the board.
I have excluded coaching of Juniors from this list of negative impacts on ones chess as I have found it keeps you sharp not always for over the board chess as you have to play in tournaments but keeps you sharp for analysis.

Anyway just some observations.

No standard time limit rated games by me in the rated period so I predict 1521!!
As far as Rapid is concerned, not enough games in the period for a rating so UNR.

lose 20 odd in the Aust Major, gain 20 odd in the QLD Aust day w/e.

net result - not much change.

I think I must've gone down a bit. I'm not sure how much... hopefully not below 1600 :wall: :wall: :wall:

No change. No rated games. Have to wait until next period to blast back into the 15 hundies.

I'd say mines like Garetts, a few points down from the Major, a few points up from the Newcastle Open...

I think I went up to around 1400 or so
