Re: Durrr in process of losing 60k+ in a chess bet.. good month for ra

I've actually heard players recap their tourneys by saying something like this:

"My rating is 1400 but I usually play more like a 1600."

"my first opponent was rated 1220. He actually played more like a 1600 though. He beat me. I made a bad mistake."

"my next opponent was rated 1100. He actually played more like a 1400 though. I won that game."

"my next opponent was rated 1300. He played more like a 1500 though. We drew."

"So if you consider how good these players REALLY are I actually lost to a 1600, beat a 1400, and drew a 1500. Yet my rating is going to go down now because every single one of my opponents was under-rated just like me. It sucks!!"

on and on and on.

EVERYONE'S rating somehow is lower than what it should be?
Logically something just doesn't add up in there.
