Sure I read somewhere on this site that a player cannot lose / gain more than 32 pts at one time regardless of the formula calculation.
Cant seem to find it now, although I haven't tried that hard.

Remind me please, those in the know

FAQ

(Score - Win Expectancy) can't be > 1 or < -1, so you can't lose / gain more than 32 for 0-2099, 24 for 2100-2399, and 16 for 2400 and above.

Lovely. Thank you.

I could certainly not be ar**ed to derive that from the formula at half past midnight. FAQing good of you to help me out.

Good night

sweet, so if I had some resignable positions I could just hold them off until I hit 2100 and then only lose half the amount of points when I resigned them

Actually my question is complicated a little by the fact the opponent is a provisional.
I know this means only half the points are lost, but is this applied after the equation or before?
In other words, is the maximum one can lose to a provisional 16pts, or can you still lose 32pts (equating to a loss of 64 were it not for the 'p'?

Do the calculation with the provisional rating, then divide by 2.
