I agree with Mctayto on this one. Why would you want to know your exact
rating? Basicly if the ratingdifference between both players is big, the higher rated will gain less points for a win, and the lower rated will win more points for a win...and the other way around.
If both players ratings (almost) match, the rating differences will be smaller (and both players will win/lose about the same amount of points).
You can calculate this for yourself if you are that interested: FAQ
Im not sure, but there might be a greasemonkey script for it.
And theres a thread somewhere that shows how many rating points will change by different amounts of ratingdifferences....but I dont know where it is.
