Competition Chess Rating: ~1373.25

From the first-chess-competition-ever dept. (4871) (0) by Luis

I've joined the BAL chess league, which plays for fun. After 7 rounds I played 4 games. Now I'm ready to be officially rated! My score is 2 out of 4 won against really strong (competition level) players. The provisional rating system used is explained in the official site.

Here is where I stand:

((0 x 1300) + (1886 + 1539 + 1034 + 1034 )+(400 x (2 - 2))/(0+4) - 0

This is pretty much the average of the ratings of the 4 players:

5493/4 = 1373.25

1373.25! a lot of games to go so this can change. I'm getting a hang of competing. Here is a sample game from round 5 where I lost to Adia Onyange playing white:
