    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".
