What is better your Ranked Rating or your Chess ELO?

SDS

I’ll start, in Ranked Seasons if I really work I can hit around 850, my Chess ELO has been in the 950-1000 range as of late (on Chess.com, never used Lichess or FIDE).

My main openers (starting pitchers) are Cliff Lee, Roy Oswald, and Garrett Crochet and my main chess openings are the Fried Liver Attack, the Traxler, and more rarely the Ruy Lopez Opening, almost always starting these by playing King’s Pawn to e4.

The elo system actually gives you a formula to calculate your win percentage against different ratings. The current world champion, Magnus Carlsen has a 2878 ELO, a new player would probably have around a 400-500 ELO, we’ll be extremely generous and say 800. The math still rounds down to you having a 0% chance to win.

Let’s say you got up to a 1500, a respectable rating making you now probably top 15%ish in the world. You now have a 0.000001% chance to win.

What an odd thread. Probably nobody plays chess on chess.com, plays MLB the show, and goes on this forum as well, just you... on the off chance they do, you'll have a response of 1 that can relate to your extremely specific hobbies together. At which point they can tell you their ranking on both hobbies and this thread ends.
Or, you're just wanting to tell us you play chess digitally and are good at it. Cool bud.
You can hit an MLB pitcher, you're the Internet's Bobby Fischer, and Derek Jeter is the greatest ever. Got it.

I’m just whatever OP + 1

1250 ELO but I have very little time to study. I like using queens gambit to open unless I know my opponent is much better than me. Then I will play more conservative and hope for a draw lol.

Finally a good answer! I have time to study but I rarely do, tried to learn a King’s Indian or King’s Fianchetto but the lines are hard to memorize.

Do you prefer playing in Queen’s Gambit accepted or declined?

The pawn is shining in the center, there ain’t a queen in sight, we’re done the opening, all the pieces are developed and don’t you know it’s a beautiful new game. 🎵

I play better if it is accepted but declined is fine. If I am playing someone I am much better then accepted for sure as it opens up the game faster.

I really have been struggling in closed positions in general and I’ve been able to recognize it so oftentimes I’ll trade say a bishop for Knight to open up the position (even though the engine generally doesn’t like it) because ik it makes me less likely to blunder something
