i was using uscf kind of based rough standards
i feel being a "master"is a matter of playing awsome chess and being consistant many lower rated players have played games about master level BUT they dont do it consitantly
so i guess the whole thing is a relitive deal
master as it relates to uscf fide RHP etc etc???
at pogo master is 2001 and higher
but most i think it is around 2200
Master is a USCF grading band just like Expert and Class , not a title.
What you feel being a Master is is of no consequence. FIDE, in their ultimate wisdom, has defined exactly what each title means and if you are so inclined you could look it up on their (horribly designed) website.
There is no conversion between RHP ratings and OTB ratings of any type. It's a different type of game. You can't say that a player with a 2200 rating here would be a FM or a USCF Master.
RHP doesn't give any titles or bands (excluding the bands in the rating formula but they are just hidden distinctions) based on rating. None. Pogo, it seems, does and that makes them stupid heads.
