FM nobodyreally: hi master, tech me about bullet, please. Play unrated...?
I would give you a match if you knew how to behave. So, the answer is no.
So, am I to understand you reported him to the admins?
A players true rating is the one they get when they play in true tournaments. By that I mean real over the board live tournaments where they give you a rating based on your true results. I hope this helps, good luck.
The_Con_Artist, I agree and disagree. Rating is a bit of science. At least in the sense that the formula is designed so there is a known probability of winning/loosing based on your rating. For example the player who is 200 higher should score 76% of time, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elo_rating_system.
As it is just a probability, it can happen that 2000 player beets 2100 player 10 times in a row. It is very unlikely that 1500 player beets 2500 player 10 times in a row, but still there is a very small chance.
I agree that ratings are overrated, but it is also a good indicator of your personal progress. If your rating goes up, your training plan seems to be good. Bullet and standard ratings are not very comparable, still 2000+ standard chess players tend to be good in blitz and bullet too.
How about these facts?

I don't blame you, in spite of your punk-like literary style. Anyway, I'm afraid that probability can't be based on 5 games. You played thousands of games and it might be interesting to do analysis on the full set. I guess the outcome would be that if we took into account only games with players who had 100 or more games, the probability of winning would be correlated with the elo difference. Some mathematician/programmer as an volunteer to prove/disprove this? And of course technical constraints like lags affects online elo especially for the bullet games, but it's not easy to avoid that.
Thanks. Exactly the answer I wanted
Of course it is...it is the answer that massaged your ego and told you what you wanted to hear...that you are actually okay at chess. That was nice of him. I would have told you otherwise.
I don't think that's what I was saying. If anything, my point was "okay at chess" is relative. Compared to seasoned club players and professionals, obviously he is not a "good" chess player. But, a 1200 player will beat a complete beginner. That shows his effort has taken him somewhere.
He never told me I'm okay. Making up things to get your point forward is generally not a good idea, just sayin'
I don't really have a point. I am just making fun of you because I find your persona (Obama/North Korea) and your posts annoying, just sayin'
Hahaha, just sayin'.
You have a strange sense of humour
We are all mad here man.
Their OTB peak.
i dont no
You wouldn't give me a match because it will be high risk for your reputation if you lose from low rated player like me. So, your answer is NO.Yes, your decision to refuse my challenge is a wisdom. Yeah, I often beat a titled player like you. Do you wanna I prove it? Let visit my thread at http://www.chess.com/forum/view/general/how-do-i-measure-the-real-rank-of-my-bulletOk, thanks and best regards, RA.
