how accurate is the online chess rating here in chess.com in your USCF and FIDE ratings?? Please post your Online chess rating in chess.com and post your USCF and/or FIDE rating..
1800 USCF, 1600 here, but I'm fairly new to the site and I've tossed many online games by moving with little thought and/or intoxicated.
wow,,maybe I'm a 1700+ in uscf because im a 1600+ here in chess.com.. :)
One of my friends and I are both around 800 USCF and around 1300 on here.
I'd say that it translates roughly like this for correspondence ratings to OTB ratings:
1200- chess.com = 700- OTB
1200-1400 chess.com = 700-900 OTB
1400-1600 chess.com = 900-1100 OTB
1600-1800 chess.com = 1100-1400 OTB
1800-2000 chess.com = 1400-1700 OTB
2000-2200 chess.com = 1700-2000 OTB
2200-2400 chess.com = mostly 2000-2300 OTB
2400+ chess.com = 3200-3400 OTB
These can all vary depending on effort (someone who just blitzes out moves in a correspondence game might actually have a rating lower than their OTB) but are generally accurate in most cases.
