Say I start playing someone who's 150 rating points above me. By the end of the game, which I win in this hypothetical case, my opponent has been on a losing streak and is actually rated below me.
As far as the rating engine is concerned, am I playing someone 150 points stronger than myself, or someone weaker than myself, or what?
just curious. i see the algorithm info in the FAQ area but this particular issue isn't addressed.
