    Thanks! It seems painfully obvious now that you point it out. Every forum seems to have a slightly different system...

    Why then did I go down from 1200 (to 1361) when I beat someone who has a rating above 1200 (1089)?? Admittedly don't have time to read the article... but hoping someone knows how this works anyway!

    Read the article you lazy lump...if you have time to play Chess you have time to read.

    Hello everyone! I present you my new app Chess Elo Calculator. The App calculates resulting Elo with pinpoint accuracy. It is available on IOS and Android. I've added the recent tournament results of Magnus Carlsen with the calculation of our App. I hope you like it! https://www.imageupload.co.uk/image/D82G https://www.imageupload.co.uk/image/D82S https://www.imageupload.co.uk/image/D82U https://www.imageupload.co.uk/image/D82a https://www.imageupload.co.uk/image/D82N

    Forgive me if this has been addressed before, but if I start a game against someone with a rating of 1500 in a game over a period of 2 weeks and in that time his rating increases to 1600, when my game with him ends does the system calculate using his ranking of 1500 or 1600?

    That's actually an excellent question. 

    My understanding is that chess.com uses the rating at the end of the game. Other sites use the highest ratings during the game.

    Wow! A 1200 starting rating is actually pretty high!
