A beginner should first, and foremost, try learning chess.
The rating system has some meaning for players that know how to play chess (or, eventually, THINK they know how to play chess), and not for beginners.
i guess this is a misunderstanding as prfen said..a beginner should not care about his rating...people thinking like...owww beginners sucks,wahts the point of thinking about making rating while they cant play chess at all...but i guess prfen actucally meant forget the headache of rating,and just concentrate on basic principles of chess.
Is this really a draw ?
