    Your rating history suggests you are actually improving a lot. In the last 6 months, your rating went up 100 points even though you've been playing at the top of your section. Sounds like you are struggling to consistently win against lower rated opponents with white. You might want to download Canbase and figure out how 1700s normally win against 1400s.

    Write down now how you think it happens. Then check out 20-30 game and see if you are right.

    Furthermore, don't resign or offer/accept draws, and write down and review how much time you spend on every move.
    also im not sure how you actually access the canbase pgn files I can never seem to find the actual games in can base do you know how to access those??

            Very interesting thread! I’ve been playing offbeat openings like 1. Na3 and 1. B4 as white to practice middlegame skills and not worry about memorizing lots of theory. I found that this let me improve my chess understanding overall and I would definitely reccomend it.
