Club Ratings Based On Almost 500 Rated Games

Posted: 21/05/2013 by Ian in Club News

Club ratings are now based on 459 games since the start of the year. As more members play in excess of thirty games the K factor will drop and ratings will stablize out, making it more difficult to improve (and destroy) ones rating. Note also that players generally wont lose or gain rating points when there is a wide gap between ratings and the game goes as expected (ie the stronger player wins). This can be seen when you examine the rating changes that occurred after last nights games, with Daniel gaining the most points from his win against the higher rated Stefan:

Daniel 1086 1102

Richard 1107 1102
