Okay, I know that as long as I'm still provisionally rated, the system is strange... but I just lost 28 points... with a win! (and a decisive win, at that). In fact, my rating has gone from 1478 to 1434 with the ending of my last two games... and they were both wins.
Sheesh! Any 2200 players wanna let me resign to them so I can bring my rating to 1600?
So let me ask you this: 2 players start out. One player goes 10-0 against a bunch of 1000 rated players. Te other goes 0-10 against a bunch of 2000 rated players. Who will be rated higher?
