rating curiosity if u win with black pieces, as opposed to white, does your rating end up better than if you had played with white (and obtained the same result against the same opponent)?

just curious

how do you figure ... black starts the game even .. white just has the initiative .. and with correct play .. it will disipate over time . there is no game winning advantage for white befor the game starts .

chess is a theoretical draw , hence the points awarded are even .

theoretically it may be a draw... but statistically white has the advantage...

Hmm refutor *does* have a point ...

If statistically seen, white wins significantly more often in the chess world and throughout all of the known chess history, then white apparantly does have the advantage. Whether it be a "real" advantage or only a psychological one, it IS an advantage ...

"Chess is a theoretical draw "

This has not been proved - it is entirely possible that with 100% correct play chess gives a win for white (or Black!!)
