    Is there any grading system which acknowledges White's advantage??

    what advantage?

    Advantage of the first move? Something like: Win with White = 10 points in rating, but win with Black = 15 points? Interesting idea, but no system I know of uses anything like that and certainly not RHP.

    Those are very impressive stats you have. especially after your poor start at RHP.

    How come you favour black? Do you study Black more than White or defending suits you?

    Ah yes,I only noticed myself last week I had so much more games playing black than white.

    I don't have a preference,it's all chess.And,at least at my level,it doesn't matter much anyway.
    I don't study openings,too boring.I do dabble a bit with gambits and unorthodox openings but no serious study.
    as all players I prefer to attack but when things go wrong I'll calmly defend best I can.I don't think I'm very good at it but I manage to remain calm and avoid panick which already helps a lot.

    I think the black/white discrepancy is because most open invites on offer have them playing white.
