    If my opponent hasn't played 20 games yet, and his rating is provisional, how many points would I lose if I lost to him/her?

    when linking to other threads you should use the Thread 32478 type of link.

    or even better - link to the FAQ which answers the question, rather than simply link to another thread which does not.

    Well thank you.

    Maybe it would be easier to just say, "Read the FAQ"

    Yeah, I get that whole part...my question was regarding the points equation. Specifically, if I lose to someone with a p1320 rating does that mean I'm deducted points as if I'd played a 1200 player? The answer is obviously 'yes' according to the FAQ. I just had trouble getting my head around the inequity. Sorry for bothering all the code talkers out there.

    You should have read the FAQ... "If you have a non-provisional rating and you play a provisional-rated player, then you receive (or lose) only half the number of rating points you would normally. If the provisionally-rated player has played fewer than five games, then their rating is treated as 1200 when calculating your rating."
