So if I can lose 24 points playing someone 300 pts below me but only lose 3 pts playing someone 300 pts above me, there is no reason (ratings-wise) to ever play someone with a lower rating?
That's a rude statement Horror, I was asking a legitimate question. If I weren't playing to increase my rating, I would play unrated games. Higher rating= games against better players, that's the way it works here.
Thanks Bill, those statistics put it in perspective.
