To calculate the player rating in a backgammon tournament, we use the following formula:
R = 10 * log2(N) / M , where N – number of players in participating tournament, M – player’s place.
The rating obtained in the tournament will be added to the existing tournament.
Every month, the backgammon tournament rating is reduced by two. (R = R / 2)
Participate in backgammon tournaments more often to keep your rating high
Backgammon Game Rating
Total and daily ratings are calculated as follows:
ratings are considered as follows oW in the event of a victory in a backgammon match, the player rating increases by the number of chips won.
If a player loses a game of backgammon, then his rating is reduced by 80% of the number of chips lost.
Daily rating is reduced by 5%. Therefore, play backgammon more often so as not to lose your place in the ranking.
The developed Elo system was an American professor of physics at Markett University and a Hungarian-born chess player Arpad Elo ( Élő Árpád )
This system takes into account the strength of the players. If a strong player plays with a weak one, then in case of victory his rating will increase slightly. But in case of defeat, it will fall noticeably.
And vice versa, a weak player will win a noticeably higher rating, and if he loses, he will not lose much.
Initially, each new backgammon player receives a rating of 1500.
The change in Elo rating is calculated by the formula:
E = ± R * 10 * Sqrt( L ) / ( 1 + 10 D * Sqrt( L ) / 400 ) , where L – match to how many victory points (in money-games the value is 1); D – the difference in the Elo rating between the player for whom the rating is calculated and his opponent before the game; the ± sign is interpreted as follows: if won, the current rating increases, if lose, then subtracted; R – the coefficient taking into account how quickly the rating for new players will grow is determined by the formula:
If G is the total number of games for all time, then
