    Look at FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) under HELP on the menu bar. The complete ratings system is answered there, including why your rating didn't change.

    If you still have questions after you've read the FAQ, you'll get lots of help here.

    Good Luck!

    FAQ is here: http://www.redhotpawn.com/help/index.php?help=faq, or under "Help". Your rating didn't change because it doesn't change until you complete your sixth game.

    True. Although i think you get a rating after 5 completed games.
    "Ratings are locked at 1200 until 5 rated games are completed."
