    In short, provisional ratings are averages of the following numbers
    opponents rating if you drew
    opponents rating + 400 if you won
    opponents rating - 400 if you lost.

    After you complete 20 games you are NOT provisional rated anymore. It's all uphill from there if you win. 🙂

    You should play anyone you feel like playing, finish up your games and get your true rating. Just because your rating goes down isn't a problem... once you establish your rating more high rated players may want to play you, but I don't feel you should limit yourself yet because you lose a few points for a win.

    Eventually, your rating will be your true rating.
