    Just out of curiosity, what's correlation between RedHotPawn and USCF ratings? People with USCF rating, could you tell me your ratings, let's compare them! Given enough data, I could perform rigorous correlation analysis, just for fun.

    USCF 1835, RHP 1816. Both of which fluctuate wildly.

    But a better way to figure out a coorelation would be to figure out the the rating to be in the top 10, 20, 50% on this site, and compare it to the top 10,20, 50% in USCF. If we assume about the same level of people play here as do in USCF OTB games, it should work

    I don't know my uscf. I've only played in about 10 games or so, but I play on an equal level w/ 1500 players otb. Here my rating was usually around 1400-1450 a year ago, but I think as rhp has grown, ratings have gone up, since I've been back I've won most of my games and it seems likely that my rating here will level off over 1500.

    depends on how often you play uscf rated tourneys.
    i play about once or twice a year, and have a 1570 or so rating.
    I play thousands of games on the net, and have an 1800-2000 rating.
    Playing a slow otb game in a tournament setting, is much different then playing who (or what) knows. over the web.

    good idea! I'll see if I can get these data.

    OTB 1889 - 60 to 70 games from 2004-2006

    Rhp 1821 - 71 games from 2005 basically to end of 2006.

    Pretty close compared to others.

    now he is USCF 1500 and RHP 1800


    I'm about USCF 1608 RHP 1800,
    I do make treibble mistakes that should have stopped at 1300.

    You should get some other vars too, like use analyse board or not, use DB or not, and average time spent per move. I bet these would be significant in your regression.

    My theory is that RHP rating = b1*USCF+b2*use_board+b3*avg_time+b4*DB

    You know something like that...

    Of course I just noticed you've been gone for like a year, so I guess you won't be doing any regressions any time soon - funny

    Indeed, I have had plans fall through 2 or 3 times in the last year. Since playing on RHP, I've improved significantly. Additionally, the USCF have been deliberately inflating their ratings. I think I could pack a mean punch for a 1425 player and perhaps surprise a few people. At the very least it would be nice to test the waters. I view OTB as "real" chess and all else as practice.
