The Omega Chess Rating System:
1. Initial ratings will be based upon existing CFC and USCF ratings, (higher of the two). Aside from this criterion, the method for calculating ratings will roughly coincide with the CFC rating system. 2. The formula for calculating provisional ratings is as follows  Rp = Rc + 400*(W  L)/N where Rp is the new provisional rating, Rc is the average rating of your opponents, W is number of wins, L is number of losses and N is the number of games played. Provisional ratings are recorded as Rp/N where N is number of games played. eg, if Bob Smith has a rating of 1974/14 then he has a provisional rating of 1974 based on 14 games. For the purposes of OMEGA CHESS, provisional ratings become established ratings after 20 games. 3. For players with established ratings the formula used is Rnew = Rold + 16*(W  L) + .04*(RoppRold) where Rnew is the new rating, Rold is the old rating, and Ropp is the opponent's rating, with the limitation that ABS(RoldRopp) has a maximum value of 350. 4. Bonus rating points will be awarded to those players rated below 2200 on a one for one basis for any rating increase in a tournament that exceeds 25 rating points. This is subject to modification deemed necessary based on the degree of rating system inflation or deflation.
