    Everyone starts at 1200. He's won all his rated games so far, so he's apparently a strong player. Provisional ratings calculations involve the average ratings of opponents so ratings are always unpredictable until 20 rated games are finished.

    Only applies from the 21st rated game onwards, and not applicable to players rated above 1800.

    I think it's not applicable to players rated above 2100, not 1800.
    Not something I'll ever have to worry about!
