URS (Universal Rating System) Ratings
(Updated every month, following the updates on universalrating.com)

The Universal Rating System™ (URS™ for short) is a new sport’s rating system designed to assess the relative strength of participants. It was developed as a result of a collaborative research project funded by the Grand Chess Tour, the Kasparov Chess Foundation and the Chess Club of Saint Louis. Unlike Elo rating, the URS calculates a single overall rating for every chess player which is optimized to represent their strength at classical chess based upon their game results across all time controls (classic, rapid and blitz). The research claims to indicate that incorporating both slow and fast-play results provides better information regarding a player’s overall chess ability, with the enlarged pool of data aiding the overall accuracy of the rating system and improving the ability to estimate the strength of a player at classical time limits.

The ratings are updated (as of today) monthly. Chess-db.com is displaying those ratings on the players' profiles and will be offering various statistical information on this and other pages.
