You know when I play for some reason I go up and down drastically and have been from 600-1300 in one day. It's so weird. I don't play much, so perhaps it has to do with my few games played.

Most chess sites use Glicko-2 which has uncertainty as a parameter, if you havent played much your uncertainty will be high and you will go up and down a lot

You know that's literally what I was saying. XD

I know I started off saying for some reason, but I did know why. It will be fine after I play a few games though man. I get to play ZeDerpyOne next in this tournament.

I kill time on lichess still a lot but havent improved much.

Theres this guy who I come up against quite frequently who is ranked at 2100 who throws away his rook in the first 2 moves then fights back and beats me everytime

You entered any more tournaments?

I think I have an interesting opener for the games I'm gonna play ZeDedpyOne in. The opener is a bit odd t the start, but that's why I think it will work. Try to not take his rook then, that may confuse him. Even if only a little it could help you. ^_^

What exactly is he doing to give up the rook? If he's trading rook for bishop, it could be a rook gambit, where he's trying to weaken your opening by depriving you a critical piece of most common openers.

Or he could even just play without a rook. Honestly, that's not a big deal. Paul Morphy would (and most GMs) would rather spot a rook than a bishop or knight because Bishops and Knights are substantially better in the early/mid game than the rook.
