The algorithm excludes matches based on the following:
- A player withdraws before the match starts
- The match starts but neither player wins at least four games (due to a withdrawal/retirement)
- There is a UTR Rating difference of more than 2.00 and the higher-rated player wins as expected. Our data indicates matches with a UTR Rating difference of more than 2.00 are almost certain to be a blowout. Results like these are not indicative of either player’s skill level and are excluded by the algorithm.
Keep in mind that these excluded matches still show up on the player profile but are not used in the rating calculation.
