Ratings on chess.com do not have to be very accurate.

My very low rating of 1658 for Live Bullet is not accurate at all

 AS I HAVE NEVER PLAYED A BULLET GAME IN MY LIFE!!

Well somebody on your account has won 5 games of bullet. You played them about 5 years ago

Your surname could be a clue.

Btw, tactics isn't a true rating. Fabiano, you have less than 300 pts between your *chess* ratings.

I agree Cat Person.

Blitz is a game of fast chess like 5 minutes. Go to this website.

turtle, the general points system followed is as follows:

pawn - 1pt.

knight/bishop - 3pts.

rook - 5pts.

queen - 10pts.

of course points are not everything... the position of your piece also matters.. for example you might not mind losing a bishop or rook to save a pawn on the 7th row.. and points dont have any bearing on the game result.. it is just a basic framework to help beginners understand the value of different pieces

Pretty high rating for someone who doesn't know that a queen is 9 points.

2 rooks + pawns can usually beat Q + pawns with same # of pawns

Tactics are usually much easier. I have 800+ points from tactics to blitz and 1000+ points from it to rapid/bullet

That's nice.

Does anyone know how I can resign from a game?

SmyslovFan

Click the resign button. It looks like a flag (you're waving the White Flag of surrender).
