    Is there a way of displaying how your rating would change if you played another player?

    For example, if I view player X profile, would it be possible to show data for:

    "If you were to win against x = +25"
    "If you were to draw against x = +1"
    "If you were to lose against x = -20"

    Any thoughts?

    Since your ratig and the one of the possible Opponent changes with every finished game, the Information is not really useful.

    There is a list of Rating changes. Thread 80000 which a lot of People agree should be in the FAQ

    When I first started playing I set up a spreadsheet tab by copying the formula used on the site to display this sort of information.I simply type in the ratings and it gives me the info. However, as stated it's not that useful unless you're imminently near the end of a game
    I still have it in my spreadsheet but rarely use it
