Originally posted by zebanoGood point, and probably a good estimate. The only way to get a FIDE/USCF/BCF/etc. rating over the board is to go out and do it, after several years you'll have an idea.
There is no way to know. It's probably similar, but could be off by 400 points or more.
Originally posted by tonytiger41Not necessarily. It depends alot on the player. Some are much better at using databases and such which enhance their CC ratings by quite a bit. I think it is a complete toss up as to whether your OTB or CC rating will be higher.
most likely the over-the-board rating is 200-to-400 points lower than the rhp rating.
corresponding ratings are typically much higher than o-t-b.
Originally posted by mazziewagmaybe that's why I am not as good at OTB...I have about a 1400 rating there, and here almost 1700.
OTb depends more on instant and continual thought, and also memory and knowledge of openings and endgames etc. CC people who have no opening knowledge dont suffer as much if they use databases etc, so there are a few very obvious things which affect the rating - but a hell of a lot of others too.
