    Reliable for ratings up to about 1800, I think. The ratings used for the calculation are the players' current ratings when the game finishes.

    I was around in 2007 reading forums when this thread was created. I immediately bookmarked it and it's been extremely useful. Nowadays I just remember the thread number. It's good that the number was so easy to remember! It would have been better if it had ended up in the FAQ, of course.

    The way the ratings work are listed in faq.
    It's not difficult to transpose the formulae into your own xl spreadsheet.
    I did one when I first joined but I don't think you can post an xl spreadsheet into a thread.
    Can anyone help with this?
    I suspect you will find when you have been on the site for a while that ratings don't really mean much on here but if you are really interested and don't want to do your own spreadshhet I could e mail you an attatchment if you send me a pm with your address.
