Hello, For elo calculation what elo the system use, the current or the elo from the start of the tournament?
Thibault de Vassal (2007-01-03 14:25:14)
TER (tournament entry rating) is used for chess, while the current rating is used for Go... Ratings are updated after each game for Go.

So, if i correctly understand, in chess is used the TER. After the new rating was calculated i drew this game: http://www.ficgs.com/user_page.php?page=viewer&game=2849 My opponent have a higer elo then me, soo whay, if the new rating list was calculated today, i lose elo? Best regard's Miguel Pires

Your TER was 2019, your current elo is 2160, higher than the previous one... What is the point ?
Miguel Pires (2007-01-03 16:47:20)
Sorry. I'm going to try to explain (in portuguese is more easy): In 01/01/2007 my rating is 2160 In 02/01/2007 i drew a game against an opponent: His TER 2053 mine 2019 Now if i'm going to see my next rating calculation i see i lost 7 point's, but if the elo is calculated with the TER i can't lose point's, correct? This is the point Miguel Pires PS: Sorry my bad english

Interesting Pires. I have similiar experience I drew a game with a higher TER than m e, yet I lost points, no many though. I give up trying to figure out the rating scheme knowing that it applies to us all equally, thats enough for me cheers Wayne

LOL. I'm only traing to understand how this work's, only that nothing more. LOL Regard's Miguel

Rating calculation use your opponents TER and your current rating !
So this is quite normal :)
