I am sure I have gone through the FORMULA, via EXCEL, and I only get 1224
I asked the same question only 3 weeks ago.
I didn't read the FAQ either.
Initial ratings seem to be very erratic but I guess you've got to start somewhere and they eventually seem to settle down.
I think the formula is the same used by FIDE for ELO ratings. Am I correct someone?
