A Chess Rating System is a system used in chess to calculate an estimated strength of the player, based on his or her performance versus other players. It is used by World Chess Federation (FIDE) to evaluate the strength of every player. Therefore this rating system is known as FIDE rating system. Most of the systems are used to recalculate ratings after a tournament or match but some are used to recalculate ratings after individual games.
In almost all systems a higher number indicates a stronger player.
In general, player’s ratings go up if they perform better than expected and down if they perform worse than expected. The magnitude of the change depends on the rating of their opponents.
The ELO rating system is currently the most widely used.
