    Yes.. lose to someone your rating goes down.
    Draw to someone lower than you, your rating goes down
    Draw to someone higher than you, your rating goes up.

    The exception is that if the ratings are too far apart (don't know exact amount), then there is no loss of points when the lower rated player loses

    As a provisional player, wierd things can happen to your rating. Read the FAQ.
