    this is cc and that is generally otb so they don't. rating's calculated the same method i think but dont correlate.

    It depends on how long you spend on each move. If you spend 5 seconds per move then your OTB rating should probably be higher, and vice versa

    This is no correlation. For example my ratings depending on where I’m at are: 1100, 1425, 1575, 1675, 1785, 1800, 1960, 2050, 2300 and maybe some others I’ve forgotten about. Which one is the most accurate? Well, I’d like to think it’s the 2300 of course!

    Well, I'd say there is some correlation. You wouldn't find someone who is a grandmaster OTB rated 1300 on here. There is just no reliably predictable correlation.

    ((RHP * 1.25) * pi)/3 is pretty close

    I like that..........lol

    I would expect RHP rating to be higher than OTB for players in lower to mid range level (more time to investigate unique or new situations).

    I would think RHP ratings to be on par or lower for 1800+ players due to the knowledge needed to reach that level.

    It just seems the higher your OTB rating the closer it will correlate on RHP.


    But I am sure there is going to be a flurry of players that will show this to be wrong.



    I will say this, if you focus on a unique or uncommon opening, I would think that your OTB game would be stronger. On this site you should be able to combat any unique openings.

    Take a look at what percentile ranking your rating is in USCF, then compare it to your rating and percentile here.
    Ought to give you a rough guestimate, but not everybody will be the same. Some people may be top 10% USCF, but only make top 20% here, or vice-versa. Overall I would think there would be some loose sort of correlation possible.
