i got it'
most people I know have higher elo rating than their official danish rating. is elo rating easier to get?
No, I think it is just because the average Danish chess player is stronger than the average FIDE (I assume you mean FIDE Elo) player.
The one with bishops against rook it seems Bd4 keeps things unclear but not losing Bg6 was just a desperate hope chess. I certainly didn't like Rxb7 because I give up my only rook to help him activate his passive Rf8 since Rb8. Then I can play 2.Ra7 but then Rc8 and I still have some problems. Still, Ra7?? helps me win the exchange so 2...Rc8 is to be expected. Shouldn't have eliminated 1.Rxb8 before out of some superficial analysis and assessment. Still, Rxb7 makes the black a-pawn isolated, so that should count for something.
A rook on the seventh won't win itself especially if the opponent has plenty advantages themselves. The pin of the c-pawn against the king is especially nasty. If you don't know how to win a position simply avoiding a loss is probably the best route.
I agree with most here that the test isn't that great and not to be taken seriously.
i got 2040
this is very accurate me thinks
BobbyDK, when you say Elo, do you mean Fide?
In Norway I often see players at 1650 Elo with ca 1850 Fide, but the 2000+ players has Norwegian ELO and Fide at ca the same level.
DjonniDerevnja I guess it is because if I heard right that you start with a rating of 800 in norway and in denmark you cannot be lower than 1000.
that means some players with low rating from Norway are quite strong.
so a 1500 from denmark isn't the same as a 1500 from Norway.
I think in scandinavia we should agree on one way to do things.
I am not sure if there is a startrating at all in Norway. I got ny first rating now, based on 10 games / 4 points in the c-group in the clubchampionship this winter, and my rating ended below average for the group, at 878. There are lower rated players in the group, at 500-600. The 11 year old winner started with ca 1060, but has climbed later to 1249 (and rapid 1612).
I got about 1900. I played a correspondance game with an 1859 and pretty much won, so I would think it's somewhat accurate at least for me.
