are the points of the pieces have something to do with the rating system?
value of pieces contribute to the ratings you earn or lose.
Thanks a lot for that.
So then, if say I made a move sacrificing a piece or two, as part of a well perceived and accurate combination, which led me to winning the game quickly. How would then my rating differ, given the same game, had I have taken the alternate moves (i.e. without the sacrifice), but still ended up winning? Which one would earn me the higher points.
Well, if you win your rating will go up in both case. If you could win over an opponent having a lower rating,your earning will be less and if your opponent was having a higher rating than yours, then your earning will be high. Much of this may depend on the terms of the game opening shown on the console.
that's normal don't worry about it.
thats what we all cry for !!
O K !
The system manages the allocation of the two players. Therefore you have an opponent with a quite equal strength.
If this repeats anything previously said, then I apologize, but there's NO WAY I'm reading through 55 pages of posts! On the general topic of ratings, I think there must be some sort of discrepancy in the rating of the problems on Tactics Trainer and the rating you get from playing online games. My online rating here at chess.com hovers between 1200 and 1300, however, I hover between 800 and 900 rating on Tactics Trainer! That's just too huge of a difference.
This is my own experience: When I am playing games, I have a plan. When I am doing Tactics Trainer, I am on the clock, plunged into a position I did not create and so have not been thinking about. When I improve on Tactics Trainer, I improve in my games as well, and as a result, have a higher rating. So far, my Tactics Trainer score has always been a few hundred points below my online rating, but as the points go up in Tactics Trainer, the rating points go up in online chess. It makes sense to me. :)
when i first started the tactics trainer, my rating plummetted but soon i got used to the format...now i have an idea of what i should be doing because i have completed similar problems before....of course, sometimes i miss the obvious and fail but that is chess......
u r ok !!
everyone starts at 1200. then as you play you get a new rating. it is all based on the Glicko ratings system :) check it out - it's a fun read!
may be nearest approximate also!!
Fun read?????? my brain shut down after 10 seconds......
Try to keep a mugful hot cofee at ur side and u wll see no power failure !!!
lol..not even a continuous intravenous drip of coffee would keep me awake for that...if anything gets too technical my eyes go into instant glaze mode.....
Then Sir, u think quick & execute instant !Game is fun & no serious technicality.and no worry for win or loss. And exercise more in chess and Physicals.Thanks ,
??????????? I think i now understand the phrase ‘Two nations separated by a common language.’ I understand the words you used, but when put together I am not sure what they mean.......are we still talking about the attachment explaining the glickorating system....?
I think that it doesn't matter how well one plays a game if one winds up losing the game. I think the one who wins is the quick-thinker or with the better strategy.
