  Eggman: What a Lutz.
Nov-24-03  technical draw: Wait a minute. How do you get a rating of 2590 with 49 wins and 66 losses?
Nov-24-03  PinkPanther: <Wait a minute. How do you get a rating of 2590 with 49 wins and 66 losses?>

You play against strong opposition?

Nov-24-03  technical draw: Are you saying that if I play against strong opposition and lose my rating increases. Well my rating should be 3000 by now!
Nov-24-03  PinkPanther: <Are you saying that if I play against strong opposition and lose my rating increases. Well my rating should be 3000 by now!>

No, I'm just saying that if you play extrememly strong competition and score 46.3% against them, in all reality, that's not that bad, and your rating would reflect that.

Nov-24-03  technical draw: Heck,I know there's a mathematical formula that determines the ups and downs of the ELO. I just find it strange that a 2590 rating can have such a negative win/loss ratio.
Nov-24-03  Bears092: of course, he's played more than 241 games in his career...
Nov-24-03  shadowmaster: <technical draw> Of course you don't get any rating points for losing. But look how many games he's drawn (as Bears092 is implying).
Nov-24-03  Bears092: actually, I was implying that he's played a lot more games that aren't in the database
Nov-13-08  Red October: he has some wins against top players (but probably when those players were much younger and weren't at their strongest yet)

  whiteshark: <Bears092> Megabase has 1,310 <Christopher Lutz> games, whereof 392 are wins and 660 are draws. So the <overall winning percentage> is more likely 55.1%.

The way it is calcutlated, I think [but am not 100% certain] is that your entire event is rated using the difference between your rating and the average rating of your opponents.

If the expected score in that situation for someone of your rating is lower than your actual score, then your rating is increased to reflect a better-than-expected performance by you, even if you happened to play like a fish.

  whiteshark: Update:

Mega Database 2014 has 1,369 <Christopher Lutz> games, whereof

452 are wins,
697 are draws and
220 are losses.

So the <overall winning percentage> is now 58.5%.

Dec-07-13  john barleycorn: <whiteshark> in the header is says

<Number of games in database: 460 Years covered: 1983 to 2008>

Do you know, why there are no games after 2008? Is he inactive since then?

  whiteshark: Lutz plays for <Köln-Porz>, a team which refused to play in the 'new' Bundesliga since its introduction in season 2008/09.

I see Christopher played four seasons ā 9 games in the 2nd league (West) [no games during the 11/12 season] and occasionally in the Belgian League.
