    I was wondering how strong a player is in RHP compared to FIDE rating.
    For example, I'm ~2000 FIDE, and in RHP i'm now ~1800 (but haven't played chess for a long time, and usually make moves too fast...)
    How about you?

    how very strange that you have been playing for only 7 years, and have elevated to a 2000 ELO FIDE rating... my hats off to you, you've done what very few minds could ever do.

    RHP bug. Won a game, and somehow raised 100 points... I noticed the administrators and posted the bug, but no one answered me...
    Well... at least I didn't lose 100 points

    Anyone can who starts to play chess can get to 2000 FIDE in one-two years with not much of an effort if you play in a club with strong players who can advise you.
    I took 3-4 years, it's really nothing special. I know someone who in 8 years achieved GM from level 0.

    No, actually you lost the game that boosted you 100 points.

    I remember winning it, and in statistics it says I won it...
    The other guy lost around 15 points, the expected rating change.

    I heard of some guy that happened similar. He really lost the game and won ~100 points

    So... doesn't anyone has FIDE rating to indulge my curiosity?

    Game 4234145 This is the game, at least according to your rating graph, that boosted your points.

    elperro78 (white) vs serigado (black). Black resigned and white won.

    Serigado lost a game and got 120 points for it. Quite a quantum leap!
    But he also maintained his rating level, so I guess he's worth his points, it reflects his true skill.
    Others have to fight for it, some gets it for free...

    about the same as yours (maybe about a bit higher in both)

    When did you get a FIDE rating vipiu? I thought you had only played a few OTB games?

    My ECF grade works out as 2115 (173*5 + 1250). My rating here is 2131. I've never had a FIDE rating, it's actually quite difficult to get one unless you enter very strong tournaments with other rated and titled players.

    it will come in the next Fide updating...
    I was already having 7 ELO games(2066 performance) and now I already got 4 more(about 2150 performance) and the tournament is not yet finished...
    If you get properly opponents(low FIDE rated) it is not difficult to get Fide ELO...it is difficult when you get games only against strong Fide opponents and you can not get that 1 point and at least 3 games against ELO rated players per tournament...
