Chess Ratings

From last week:

41 I'd like to find out more about the rating process.
Posted by: Cicero (@cicero) at September 14, 2019 05:56 PM (ZYB2s)

The wikipedia entry for the Elo rating system (named after its inventor, Arpad Elo) gives a pretty good overview:

The difference in the ratings between two players serves as a predictor of the outcome of a match. Two players with equal ratings who play against each other are expected to score an equal number of wins. A player whose rating is 100 points greater than their opponent's is expected to score 64%; if the difference is 200 points, then the expected score for the stronger player is 76%.

A player's Elo rating is represented by a number which increases or decreases depending on the outcome of games between rated players. After every game, the winning player takes points from the losing one. The difference between the ratings of the winner and loser determines the total number of points gained or lost after a game. In a series of games between a high-rated player and a low-rated player, the high-rated player is expected to score more wins. If the high-rated player wins, then only a few rating points will be taken from the low-rated player. However, if the lower-rated player scores an upset win, many rating points will be transferred. The lower-rated player will also gain a few points from the higher rated player in the event of a draw. This means that this rating system is self-correcting. Players whose ratings are too low should, in the long run, do better than the rating system predicts and thus gain rating points until the ratings reflect their true playing strength.

The wiki entry provides an explanation of the mathematical calcuation involved, which I will not reproduce here. The system is based on pure statistics calculation and is not dependent on anything unique to the game of chess. Theoretically, you can use it for any skill-based game where the results are a win, a loss, or a draw.

The more rated games you play, the more accurate the rating is. For exmaple, if I play 10 games, my rating will be such-and-such, but a couple three of those games may be 'fluke' wins or losses, and not representative of my actual playing strength. But if I play 100 games, then those flukes become less significant, because there won't be many of them. And the more games I play, the more data points the statistical calcuation has to work with. At the grandmaster level, small differences in ratings between two players indicate a noticeable difference in playing strength.

So, what kind of numbers are we talking about here? Typically, after your first tournament, your rating will be in the 600-1000 range, and you work your way up from there. For the purpose of tournament pairings, players are grouped into classes. Players with ratings between 1000–1199 are Class E players, 1200–1399 is Class D, then, C, B, A and then 2000–2199 is Expert. After that, you get into the Master rankings starting at 2200. At that level, the competition is really tough, so if you make if up that high, you're better almost everyone in the entire world. The International Master and International Grandmaster titles aren't awarded based exclusively on achieving a certain rating, but also on tournament performance in international competition.

The rating of last week's hottie is 1100, which is near the beginner level. So I know some of you morons could beat her in competition. My rating (1376) is higher, so, theoretically, I would win most games we played. However, none of us are as pretty as she is, so we're all losers there. Today's hottie, though, is an Woman International Master (which is like an IM, only there's no performance requirement, only a high enough rating (2200)), so none of us would have the ghost of a chance. Zombie might give her some problems, but the rest of us? We'd be like the mud she scrapes off the bottom of her shoe.



Advanced Problem - Black To Play (1041)

How does Black successfully play this position?

This is kind of a tricky endgame. In order to best understand its subleties, you need to play it like a devil's advocate. That is, once you think you've found a winning move or line for Black, you need to ask yourself "how can White throw a monkey wrench into Black's plan?" So, for example, you may start out by looking at 1...f3 2.gxf3+ Kxf3 and then think "woohoo, I've found the solution, that wasn't so hard", but then you need to consider that since White isn't forced to play 2.gxf3, is there a better move? Hint: there is.

3.Bh6+ Rxe8

Advanced Problem - Black To Play


20190921 - Problem 3.jpg
8/8/8/8/4kpp1/8/3K2P1/8 b - - 0 1

1...f3
2.Ke1

If 2.gxf3+ then 2...Kxf3 wins easily

2... Ke3
3.g3

If 3.gxf3 then Black wins by 3...Kxf3 4.Kf1 Kg3 5.Kg1 Kh3 6.Kh1 g3 7.Kg1 g2 8.Kf2 Kh2

3...f2+
4.Kf1 Kd3!

Black needs to give up one pawn in order to force White's king away from the other. His king had to go to d3, seizing the opposition. If 3...Kd2? then 4.Kxf2 and now it is Black who has the opposition. White can no longer make progress.

5.Kxf2 Kd2
6.Kg1 Ke3
7.Kg2 Ke2
8.Kg1 Kf3
9.Kh2 Kf2
10.Kh1 Kxg3
11.Kg1 Kh3
12.Kf2 Kh2
13.Ke3 and wins

But 1...Kd4 is also good. Probably even better.

Hope to see you all next week!

___________

Note: that cryptic line of letters and numbers you see underneath each board diagram is a representation of the position in what is known as "Forsyth-Edwards Notation", or F.E.N. It's actually readable by humans. Most computer applications nowadays can read FEN, so those of you who may want to study the position, you can copy the line of FEN and paste into your chess app and it should automatically recreate the position on its display board. Or, Windows users can just "triple click" on it and the entire line will be highlighted so you can copy and paste it into your chess app.

14 I went to a surprise birthday party the other day at a pizza joint, a lady's 65th, she's still beautiful, slim and elegant, there were lots of good-looking older women in terrific shape, there was karaoke and all the men and women who sang were great, good singers. I'm old and don't get out much so it was delightful, really lifted my spirits. Anyway, to the point, I was near a very well-dressed woman and noticed she had slipped out her cell phone, I watched out of the corner of my eye as she looked at the screen, swiped a move on a chess board, then put the phone away. I thought that was pretty cool...

61 Advanced Problem

1. ... Kd4
2. Ke2 Kc3 (otherwise 2 ... Ke3)
3, any Kd3 (white cannot guard the d3 square)

Now the only way to guard e3 is to come to f2 and
then black plays d4 and white must retreat from f2.

If white plays to the 1st rank then black plays Ke3.
Otherwise white must play Ke2 and black can play g3.

Now if white does not play to the first rank then he
must play Kd2 and black plays f3 white plays gxf3
black plays Kxf3 and it is all over.

So we must have black K on e3 and white K on first rank (or white has already lost).

If white has K on e1 then black plays f3 otherwise he plays g3 and wins ... I think.

modern style AR type receivers have an integral one.... it's the ramp shaped bump just behind the ejection port.

older style ones do not, but it's only an issue, usually, for left handed shooters,
and it serves them right for doing things the wrong way...

175 Ben Had,
Order placed for green coffee beans that if I do my part right, should cup in the high 80s and low 90s.

I'll be a roastin' fool the few days earlier than the TxMoMe.

How many do you anticipate being around Saturday morning so I can roast enough cofveve for the gang?


(I hope folks like City+ or Full City, any darker roast is of the Devil)

It's been almost two weeks since a pool company came and dug a big hole in their backyard....and have not been back since.

I'm sure they're thrilled to have giant mounds of dirt, a muddy hole, and a backhoe and bobcat to look at during the reception.

"Ukraine Foreign Minister disputes reports of any pressure from Trump. This conversation was long, friendly, and it touched on many questions." @NBCNews Correct. If your looking for something done wrong, just look at the tape of Sleepy Joe. He is being protected by the Media!

I take exception to y'all slagging lefthanders--I qualified expert in Basic as a lefty, plus the M14 and 1911A1.
I am one of those naturally right handed but wrong eye dominant, so I've learned to shoot everything both eyes open.
Handguns I can do ambidextrously. But both eyes are still open.

Just give an honest opinion of it. I know what I like, I don't know what others like until they tell me - and I'm always looking at ways to improve it.

Its sort of like Burning Man without the nudity and drugs. Money doesn't work during TxMoMe.

Lefty here. Had plenty of time at the range where a hot casing found its way down the back of my shirt. I got used to calmly placing my weapon on the bench, safety on, bolt open mag out and then walking over by the range shack screaming obscenities. Why that helps, I'll never know.

210 Not sure if being a lefty (shooting, not politically you smartasses) makes it worse but my SKS has sent more than a few rounds down my back. My buddy who also is a southpaw had one casing literally find it's way to perfectly land right on his but crack. I saw him jump up out of my peripheral and was wondering what happened. When I saw him dancing like Michael Jackson on meth and I found out why I laughed for 10 minutes.
