New players: how many games to get a grade?

Post by Wadih Khoury » Sun May 09, 2021 2:47 pm

Under the new ECF rating system, what is the minimum number of games for a rating to be generated? Is it like FIDE (5 games) or is it different?

It depends what an organiser counts as a rating. One game is enough to get a number, see this one for instance:
