Is 1550 a good rating?

Andreas192192

Right now I am rated a little under 1550 in rapid chess with over 650 games played. I'm still slowly gaining more rating points. I wanted to know if that is actually good. Am I an intermediate, advanced (or something else) player?

When u cross the rating level of 1000 people call u an intermediate player and when u cross 1600 rating people call u advanced player

And 1550 rating is way better than mine( I have 566 at the moment

Don’t listen to him. To me 1550 is bad 😉. Rating is subjective. However, 1550 is quite a bit above average. Probably around 70th percentile. Especially since your account is 1.5 years old you are doing well.

Whoops. I just checked. Your rating is 95.2 percentile. Very good compared to the average. Compared to me, or Magnus Carlsen... not so much

It's all relative. Compared to most, yes. Compared to yourself in 3 years if you stick with it and continue to learn the game? Probably not.

Very good for an Intermediate!

Very good you are doing really well- this time last year I was 1549 and I couldn't hold it.

Keep it going man, well done.

Try not to fall over yourself too much while you're putting other people down. Talk about a left-handed "compliment" that's actually an ego boost for you.

To OP, awesome job! I haven't played any games vs another person yet. I hope someday I can get over my fear and play as well as you have!

I didn’t insult the OP. I said rating are relative. Compared to the average he is very good. Compared to me... no. Me compared to a titled player... I suck

Saying you’re better than someone else isn’t “falling over yourself.”

1500 is an advanced Rating.
