A quick question...
Scenario - I'm a 903 rated player. Let's say I shoot a 800 rated round in a recent tournament. That's 100 points below my rating, so for the next ratings update that round should get dropped. Now let's say in the next year or so, I don't play to well and my rating falls down to around 890 or so...now that 800 rated round I shot is no longer 100 pts. lower than my rating. Does that round come back into effect and average in with the rest of my rounds or is the theory, "Once dropped always dropped" the case? Also...how do the rounds get re-figured between unofficial and official? Usually there's an increase or decrease between the unofficial and official? I was just wondering how that's figured or why it changes? Thanks for any info you can give.
