Never ending story.

At first my rating was for 7 days between 1520 and 1567, and not even once below 1520.
Then came 6 days when my rating was between 1500 and 1520, and not even once outside these boundaries.
I don't understand what causes this phenomenon.
Is it the few hundred extra problems that are released every week by CTS?
Is my mind slower?
Does the boom in tacticians lately cause this?
I have no idea.

Update: On the other hand, I see that my rating was nowhere above 1500 before august 10th.

circle 0: 1470
circle 1: 1500
circle 2: 18,600 /70,000
Highest rating 1567

  1. I think: boom in tacticians --> more problems released --> more initially underrated, but difficult problems --> more drop in rating. Plus: there are days when the brain works slower, and when more chess blindness occurs.
