If I have an elo rating of 1750 in playchess(in slow),does it mean I have 1750 elo rating in the reality(I think it is called USIF)? Or maybe less or even more?

please help me...

Real rating can only be earned in OTB tournaments. That simple.

Yes,I know it. But I think elo rating in Playchess(only in slow)should simulates your real elo rating.

Or maybe I am wrong....

Hi,
    The simple answer is no you have to play OTB ... USCF grades are also inflated by 100 points (maybe more.someone may correct me) Have a read at http://www.gtryfon.demon.co.uk/bcc/Java/gradingintro.htm ... Try a google search to check out the rating systems
