Time for a prognosis.

To a hypothesis belongs a prognosis.
In a few days I will start at Corus.
What will my TPR (= tournament performance rating) be?
Today my dutch rating is 1712.
This reflects my performance in the summer tournaments.
My average rating at CTS was 1470 in the summer.
My rating gain at CTS is 60 points since then.
I formulate the hypothesis that an increase of 60 points at CTS will result in a 30 points gain OTB.
To gain 30 points in 9 games I have to score a TPR of 1802.
Let's see what will happen.
