    cenerantola now at 2500. How many times has anyone (human or otherwise) reached that score?

    Could this be Ironman31 reincarnated?

    The most important stat is the opponent average rating. And thats 900 points below his rating.

    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

    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.

    I usually end up giving them back in due time as I regress back to the mean.

    For >2200 rated players if the difference in rating is more than 714 the higher rated player gets a big fat zero.

    I'm surprised you think you get 1 point no matter what. There are many times you got zero points on your own graph!

    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.

    65 games in progress puts the 58.5 moves a day in context

    58.5 moves a day and maintaining his/her strength of play is not possible for a human player. It takes time to find good moves.

    No it doesn't. The guy is making nearly 60 high quality moves (GM hard thinking niveau) a day. He should take up professional chess and make loads of money ...

    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.

    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".
