What is that spread thing in the rankings?

i guess it's something that influences your points, but how, and what influences the 'spread'?

couldn't find it in the faq..

The spread represents the "volatility" of your ranking.
Higher spread: your ranking is less stable
Lower spread: your ranking is more stable

The spread goes up if you have a great win/loss. A low spread is good if you are high up the table, i.e. your rating is more stable.

On the other hand, if you are low ranked, you want to get a high spread so your ranking adjust up quicker if you win.
