A player, who is rated higher than me, has told me that they can beat me (in a rated game), but still lose points. Is this possible?
Okay, thanks for that

But when you had a provisional rating, when your number of games was below 20 games, you could play a fellow rated far under you and even if you win you lose points.
But with non provisional players, it is not possible to lose points in a won game.
