CFC to USCF Conversion Rate

Just out of curiosity does anyone know the CFC to USCF conversion.

ivandh

(CFC score)*(e^+ 1)=USCF score

1 Canadian dollar = 0.993838 U.S. dollars

I think ivandh just said Canadians can't play chess under USCF playing conditions

Here's how the USCF sets the initial USCF rating for someone who has a CFC rating but no USCF rating.

If the player has a CFC rating over 1500, then USCF = 1.1 x CFC - 240

If the player has a CFC rating of 1500 or less, then USCF = CFC -90

Interesting this makes my uscf like 1702 as my cfc is currently 1766!  My ratings are all over the place on here I'm like 1843 currently!  I suspect though that I'm taking longer on my moves than my opponents and getting some good wins that way!  I don't think fast enough over the board yet!

so no matter what, the uscf score is 0

Wait, isn't e^ipi = -1? But there is no USCF 0 score, only 100.

The current rulebook has no conversion for CFC ratings; you just use that if there is a Canadian player that is otherwise unrated under the US Chess rating system. The exception is Quebec/FQE where you add 100.

e^ipi is just a bogus equation that makes you look smart, when in actuality it is only equal to -1
