I play many blitz games on Lichess per day, 5 + 5 and up. When I play my A game, I can beat any 2000+ player with ease, like today. Sometimes 2200, but I don't play them much.
Anyway sometimes like what happened last week, I lost many back to back matches against various 1500, 1400 and even 1200! My rating dropped just like that to 1600, perhaps less, now I'm at 1850 looking to be back at 1900 maybe 2000 soon as I'm on a winning streak.
That's the only reason I'm not 2200 player, coz one day I might win against 2200, next day I might lose against 1200. I mostly play Queen's gambit or Sicilian, no crazy openings.
Does that happen to all of you or is it just me? I play too many games per day, is that why this is happening to me?
I noticed that if I play one game or two, every few days I can win higher rated players with ease. I noticed that if I play many games per day I start feeling numb and anxious and stop seeing the board. Is it just me or does anyone play totally rubbish after many games?
I think I have chess addiction, if there's such thing, where I continue to play until I start losing and then play and lose more and it's so annoying.
