    So Bobby clocked in at 2785, pretty darn close to the 2800 crowd of today. Is there a way to estimate what his rating would be in today's dollars?
    How much has the rating system inflated since he was WC?

    I would research the average rating of the top 100 of both epochs

    Plenty of ways to estimate, no way of knowing.
