How could my opponent's rating be 565? Anybody have any ideas on this one. I don't think I've ever played anybody with a 565 rating.

Easy. Just look at his profile.
Won: 161
Lost: 614
Drawn: 1

Losing on timeout like he did to you helps loads, too.
It looks like, in the last 300 games, he's won maybe 4 times.š²

Thanks Arther,
But I thought the term &quot;opponent's rating&quot; on the chart by my profile was a sort of average of all my opponents. Am I wrong on this?

No, it's your opponent's rating in one particular game.

Your rating graph is made up of vertical lines. Each line represents one game, and the height of the line represents your rating when that game finished. If you click on the on a line in your graph, it'll take you to the game that that line represents.

Pretty neat, actually.

Wrong :the height of the line represent your rating at the beginning in that game and the successive line height is the rating obtained by the result of the previous game and so on...............

Are you sure about that, Ravello? The line doesn't appear until the game ends, correct? If its height represented your rating at the beginning of that game, then your graph would go down after you won a game, if your overall rating had gone up since that game's beginning. That can't be right.

I think the line height actually represents your rating after calculating the result of the game that finished just before the game in question finished-- that is, your rating immediately prior to the end of the game in question. No?

That is correct
