Arg! Where did the ratings calculator go@!?!???!*Originally posted by znsho***Can the players' ratings be used to caculate the probability of winning? For example, if a player of rating 1300 plays against a player of 1800, can the probability of winning be calculated? If so, what's the formula?**

Yes ( 5,3% ).

See the section "How is my rating calculated?" in the FAQ. - 17 Nov '05 01:51

It's always calculated from the current ratings of the two players. So in this example it would be worked out on the basis of your expected performance against someone rated 1600.*Originally posted by yashsr***Ok I have got another question regarding ratings.**

Say I am playing against a 1300 opponent. By the time I defeat him, his rating had shot-up to 1600. Which of the opponents rating will be taken into account, 1300 or 1600?
