`How many points are deducted if I miss a day of playing. I might have to go to hospital every now and then. Hopefully not too often! Thank you.`
```Hello dancat,
Points are only deducted every 7 days.
It used to be that points were deducted every day, but now it's only every 7 days.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery and
kind regards,
John

```  quote: Deduction will only happen if you do not play for 7 days. The amount deducted will be less if you have a rating lower than 353.
For example if you have a rating of ~150, one point will be deducted weekly (after the initial 7 days delay). unquote```

`To everyone who said: Points are only deducted weekly. `
`This is wrong!`
```

Point deduction starts initially ```
`after 7 days`
` without playing and then `
`every day.`
```

Here is the proof:

1 week ```
`+ 1 day`
``` not played (before 446, after 445, -1 total)

```

```

1 week ```
`+ 2 days`
``` not played (before 446, after 443, -3 total)

```

```

1 week ```
`+ 3 days`
``` not played (before 446, after 442, -4 total)

```

```

PS: There may be cases where the calculation is different or no points are deducted, for example if the initial rating was too low.

```Kevin,
it's only every 7 days now.

Originally, ratings were decreased each day you didn't play

```

This was changed in May 2021  to  "every 7 days you didn't play"  ```

Best regards, John```

`Points deduction will start initially after `
`7 days of no play`
`, and then points will be deducted `
`every day`
```.

Links to how the calculation is done have already been mentioned here.
