    Ever play golf? The lower your score, the better!

    Honestly I'm not sure what happened but you'd need to give more details, perhaps a link to the game would help.

    You're missing a game. Your rating went 1600-1589-1592.

    Probably because his rating is so low.

    no, scott was right.  i lost a game in the meantime and didnt realize it.  it must have happened at near the same time.  haha.  i didnt see the checkmate and it was right in front of me.  bummer.  need to keep practicing.  i win quite a few games in my rating but wonder how when i miss so many moves :) thank you scott.

    That's got to be a joke.

    It's not a joke. I played a 1900 called Street92 or something in a tornament. I lost and only went down one rating point. I'm currently 1348.

    Yeah but your rating can't go down by winning.

    So it's pretty much 1 point up is the minimum amount of points you can get.

    Your rating might not go up at all, if you beat somebody rated low enough, but it will never go down for winning.

    Well no duh. Why the Hell would you get punished for winning a game?

    If that was true, the rating system could not work properly. The minimum amount of points you get for a win is 0. Of course, the rating difference has to be very high to get not even 1 point. It happened to me once when the difference was something like 870.

    In chess.com that's true I think. In FIDE I think the least is either 1, or maybe 0.7 (rings a bell for some reason).

    Interesting. I guess FIDE can do this because there is no chance that someone starts to collect points by playing hundreds of low rated players, as it could happen with online chess.
