1) No. Sure you'll win a lot of games but as predicted by Elo spread and statistics you will lose some here and there and when you do you lose most of your hard earned points of your countless won games in one go. Keeping your rating about where it should be and that's the nice thing about Elo. 2) It's psychologically "easy" for a significantly lower rated person to play against you. The pressure to perform is on you likely making your results even worse than predicted. 3) Even if it did somehow raise your Elo playing significantly lower rated people is a sure way to get stuck in your chess development. You'll be playing the same "type" of sloppy chess over and over, you have no need to improve and the flaws in your play remain hidden. Interacting with, learning from and playing with significantly stronger players than you is a sure way to improve. You are suddenly forced to play very precise. They'll instantly point out your flaws and there will be big lessons to learn from each game.
well at one point, you gain 0 rating points. If I play a 1200, I cannot gain any rating points. 1700, yes, you could increase it to 2100 maybe
If a rating difference is bigger than 400 ELO points your expected score is 0.92 so the answer is YES. If you constantly played 1000-rated players your ELO would rise slowly but surely.
But then, Ithink, if you reached 2500 Fide would order you to play a strong tournament to prove that your are good enough for your rating.
Fixed that for you.
No he wouldn't. He's human, he's going to lose some games.
Yes, for a while, look at sebleb, his real rating that was estimated in my forum "what is seblebs real rating"....
So, Sebleb is the highest rated player on chess.com?
I play chimps occasionally to improve my rating!
