Basically If you beat someone higher than you, you go up a lot, if you beat someone lower than you, you go up a bit.
If you draw the affect on your rating is minimal.
If you lose to someone lower than you, you drop heavily, if you lose to someone higher than you, you drop a bit.
The most you can go up or down in one game is 32 rating points.
Finally like all good statistical formulae it works. If you play honestly and regularly you will find your rating tracks your skill level accurately. You will no longer be a name but a number +/- 50
