    Is that even possible? When I first learned the rules I played for a week and was rated ~900. Do they lose on purpose or something?

    Because they only score 33% against people rated 800.

    How are you only 1300?

    Ratings are on a bell curve from around 100-ish to around 3000-ish.  Each time someone wins a game and gets a better rating, the other guy loses and gets a lower rating.  Seems pretty simple.

    Well if you are interrupted during play incessantly you DROP in score.

    If you start a game and need to rush to another task ...game abandonment you drop in score. However I really think that some players CANNOT ...are not euipped brain wise to handle chess moves. You must remember this is chess requires an enhanced RIGHT BRAIN hemisphere. If you have an enlarged RIGHT BRAIN you will be a good player. Some ambidextrous players who have EQUALLY enhanced RIGHT and LEFT brain hemispheres play better. Homosexuals actually have a wider corpus collosum connecting the 2 brains and you find these people are quite clever. JUST LIKE there are MATHS dummies and LANGUAGE dummies ...the same applies to chess.   Greta Chess players are not better than PRIME MINISTERS or top athletes ...they only play chess with ease

    Not everybody has the talent that is needed to get over 1000 Elo. I mean SORRY BUT its often not their fault. YOU can imagine that not everybody wants to reach something in chess. And why ARE worrying about those players? Do you have AN argument why you are doing this, because it sounds like it is from an IDIOT...

    p.s. Now read all the big marked words.

    A person rated 600 can have just as much enjoyment playing another 600 as two 1600s.

    But the OP question is silly. Sort of like asking why there are people on the other end of the bell curve "how are people rated 2800?"

    Don't poke at us beginners. Not everyone has the time or desire to master chess.

    Guys, let us not beat about the bush here. Look at all the high graded players on Chess.com. or any other chess site. The majority of them, for reasons best known to themselves are cheats. With some of their alleged grades they would not even consider playing on a chess website. Be true you yourself, in the knowledge that you could be playing against a machine.
