    *December* 2008 ratings predictions

    Vote early, vote often!

    After tonight's loss and another in the same event I predict I will not be seeing the better side of the paltry figure 1900 for a while after Dec 1.

    Well, given that I've only 2 tournament games to go between now and December, I'm guessing I'll come back to around 1240-1250 depending on the last 2 results. With a bit of luck and a lot of hard work and practice, hopefully I'll crack 1400 in 2009!

    Subject to my actually getting to play in our club championship (50:50 shot) I will predict a 40-point increase to just under 1600. (hey, what's wrong with having a positive attitude!)

    I haven't got my Sept rating yet. Waiting for it to be posted on the ACF web site.

    If you are a Queenslander they are at the CAQ website (caq.org.au).

    I just finished my last rated club game for the year. Assuming I don't play in any weekenders between now and December 1, I can predict pretty confidently a increase of around 30 points. But still not on the better side of the paltry figure of 1900.

    BTW I seem to remember making a new years resolution to draw less games this year (without hurting my overall percentage). I can't seem to find it if I mentioned it in a post but I was able to do that this year so while my rating continues to oscillate around the same figure there is some progress.

    Probably go up 15-20 points after a soft run in the Parramatta Bag Pipe Open.
    No this is silly, the whole premise is silly and very badly written. I'm the senior officer here and I've not had a funny line yet so I'm stopping it.

    maybe a few!

    I think I did slightly better this quarter than the previous disastrous ones! I predict something close to 1340, a farcry from my highest 1570 a couple of years ago, but still something to cheer about!
    Cheers and good luck!

    There was a third loss in the same event so without even bothering to crunch the numbers I reckon I'll be down to about 1850.

    The paradoxical good news is that as my rating goes lower, some people become more worth beating and that makes me more motivated to do so.
