Videos of Players of Various Levels
The videos on this page show players of various levels and playing strengths. They are designed to help you understand the rating scale that Ratings Central uses, i.e., to help you translate a player’s level or playing strength into a number, and vice versa. For each video, the rating for the player on the left at the beginning of the video is given first.
The ratings in brackets are USATT ratings. The USATT ratings are on average 156 points higher than the Ratings Central ratings. In addition to USATT ratings drifting upward over time, there are also significant regional differences. The USATT ratings listed are from Oregon in 2010.
