That stat is not too important. That just means that the vast majority of his games he gets zero rating points. At 2500, he gets 1 point for beating a 2100 rated player*Originally posted by steve45***The most important stat is the opponent average rating.

I think you get 1 point no matter what. My rating tends to creep up a bit when I get a bunch of lower-rated challenges, or I get a bunch of welcome games with new people.*Originally posted by KnightStalker47***That stat is not too important.

I usually end up giving them back in due time as I regress back to the mean. - 08 Apr '15 00:53

For >2200 rated players if the difference in rating is more than 714 the higher rated player gets a big fat zero.*Originally posted by Paul Leggett***I think you get 1 point no matter what.

I'm surprised you think you get 1 point no matter what. There are many times you got zero points on your own graph! - 08 Apr '15 04:49

A stat I find significant is the 410 moves in 7 days (average is 58.5 moves a day!). Amazing stamina even against lower opposition, although you can mix a couple 2000+ opposition in there too.*Originally posted by KnightStalker47***That stat is not too important.

I don't ever remember playing a game where my rating did not go up at all for a win, unless the game was unrated. I'll have to check. I tend not to look at the ratings here too much, so I probably just didn't notice.*Originally posted by KnightStalker47***For >2200 rated players if the difference in rating is more than 714 the higher rated player gets a big fat zero.**

The old USCF rating system was ELO-based like this one, and it used to award 1 point for a win no matter how big the discrepancy,and I did not realize this system was different. Theu current USCF system now uses "win expectancy against score group" and does not lend itself to an easy rule-of-thumb calculation.

Thanks for the "heads up".
