You're right.
The rating is changed according to a win, a loss or a draw.

The player who beat you is rated so much higher than you, you didn't even lose 1 point.

Red Matrix put together this slightly flawed table a couple of years ago. It might be some help to you...

"(DR) = The difference in ratings. ex: 1200 - 1300 = |-100| = 100
(LR) = If the underdog wins (in this case, player 1), they get this many points.
(HR) = If the higher rated wins (in this case, player 2), they get this many points.

DR |LR |HR
15 -16-15
25 -17-14
50 -18-13
75 -19-12
100-20-11
125-21-10
150-22-9
175-23-8
200-24-7
250-25-6
275-26-5
300-27-4
350-28-3
400-29-2
500-30-1
600-31-0

More than 600 doesn't change the awarded points.
Less than 15 doesn't change the awareded points. "

For a more exact calculation you should the FAQ which details how the ratings work.

Oh, this is a thematic tournament?
Then I don't know if the games are rated or not...

Yes, they are. I was a bit surprised about that, because supposedly "Set piece games are always unrated".
