    the more you play the more it averages towards accuracy.

    Oh yes it does! How well you play includes how well you manage your time. Time is as much part of Chess as it is in other games. In football you could score the greatest goal in history, but if the referee blows time before it goes in it doesn't count. Similarly in Chess if you don't get your moves in within the time, you lose, and correctly so.


    well actually in football you get to finish your play after the ref blows the whistle

    I hate the clock when I'm short of time, but I think it's only fair when my opponent's flag falls.  :)

    True dat Nono!

    Alec is obviously more chess than football, (or does he mean soccer?)

    IMO do provisional ratings, then everyone would start where they belong

    ratings arent always acurate, keep that in mind. If someone doesnt play for a while then their rating will be lower (or higher) than their actuall skill

    turtle, the general points system followed is as follows:

    pawn - 1pt.

    knight/bishop - 3pts.

    rook - 5pts.

    queen - 10pts.

    of course points are not everything... the position of your piece also matters.. for example you might not mind losing a bishop or rook to save a pawn on the 7th row.. and points dont have any bearing on the game result.. it is just a basic framework to help beginners understand the value of different pieces


    Just adjusting this, but isnt the queen worth 9 points?

    Somebody told me that the rook valuation of 5 points is a western idea - it's only 4 in Russia. Don't know if that's true - but it puts a different perspective on the exchange of two minor pieces for a rook and a pawn if it is.
