    Do RHP ratings approximately compare to USCF ratings, or not? I understand the methodology is the same, but how do our players compare?

    I think it can vary quite a bit, depending mostly on how much time a person puts into each move. Some people put a lot of effort in, some don't.

    My USCF rating is 787, but is over 12 years old.

    The standard formulas are:

    RHP subscriber rating + 500 = USCF rating

    RHP non-sub rating - 500 = USCF rating

    Hmm. That's discrimination.

    Shouldn't it be the other way around?
