I'm still getting 4 move mated at 23 😭😭 Reply There should be an app for calculating ratings Reply so what is the actual formula? almost half an hour video and you don't even actually state it. that is quite anoying. Reply I'm 1000 rating so I'm still noob 🤣 Reply im on level 1000 i was playing from two years but without serious learning Reply Excellent: thank you! For years I have wanted to understand how tournament results alter Elo ratings. Reply One error correction: At 13:50, I stated that a lower "K" value makes one's rating less resistant to change. I got this backwards! (Double negatives can be tricky 🙂 ) My subsequent explanation is correct, but I wanted to clarify that a lower K value makes one's rating MORE resistant to change to avoid confusion. Reply Great video! what rating are you currently? Reply Thanks for the video .Very interesting topic. Reply thanks for explaining it im a 1393 USCF OTB i've done a tournament where i played 1600 first round 1400 2nd round 3rd round 1800 4 1000 Reply Thanks for the video although there is one comment where I completely disagree with you. I do not believe that obtaining a Expert level rating is possible for the vast majority of players. Having to work for a living and having maybe an hour or two at most on any given day to study/play does not allow someone to reach a level without paying for a coach to tell someone what to focus on. Someone who cannot afford a chess coach will just simply not have enough hours in a day to reach an expert level. At best a person might reach between 1600-1800 level. Reply Interesting Video Reply Good video! 👍 Reply sad 1,100 nois Reply Hey that's my name.. Reply I've already learned that the little horsey pieces jump around like they're doing a fox trot, and the ones with slits in their heads go at angles. Kings are useless and don't do squat while his wife does all the heavy lifting. What rating would I be? Reply Personally, what motivated you the most to achieve the master title. Your Passion and competitiveness? Reply For determining K, criteria of USCF is best among the others. A high rated player is expected to be stable. Reply you didnt mention the rating differences can be the same, but at higher levels it is further away. A 2700 will not lose 1 in 10 to a 2200 player. A 2200 player will not lose 1 in 10 to a 1800. Although, a 700 can get a 1100 3 out of 10 no problem, as they just throw games away back and forth. Not so at higher levels. Reply Sad 1500 Reply After 12 long years, I finally got to 2000 on lichess :)) Reply 2000 with in computer chessCan i become a granmaster. Reply Does our rating gets cancelled if we dont play for 8 years?or is there any procedure by which we cancell it? Reply I'm hoping to get to 2000 to 2200 Reply I'm stuck at 1100 (Blitz) for over 2 years. give some advice Reply What is harder opponent? Blitz rapid or bullet? Reply Do you know if there is a site in which we can see what percentages of the population represent each rating?

Reply Well according to this rating system its gonna take ages if your 0nly gaining 5 to 25 point every win especially as you have to start 1000 Reply I am 1600 on lichess and still class myself as a noob. I tend to have learning times and competitive times. The competitive phases my rating goes up. (Sole focus is to win)The learning phases, my rating goes down. (Study and experiment new openings, strategies etc)You need to go through both phases to improve your ELO long term. Reply The Deep Shredder 13 Software says may rating is 1400. Can I trust it?
