Yesterday I lost a game to a friend who's rating was 196 lower than mine (yeah, I know, I made a fatal error).
My rating went down by about 23 points and his went up about 37. Is this right? I'm sure that if your ratings are more than 200 apart this triggers a more significant points shift, but am a bit disappointed the swing has been so great in this case.

Thanks for the response, but isn't it supposed to be 12 points with that rating difference?
