    Perhaps your opponent finished another game with someone else at about the same time. Is there any chance of that being the case?

    Otherwise you are correct. The same amount of points that are gained by one player should be lost by the other player when the game is over.

    The rating calculation chart is the first post in Thread 80000.
    Where the rating difference is between 11 and 32 points, a draw is worth 1 point to the lower-ranked player, loss of 1 point to the higher-ranked player.
