How many Games?

Post by Trefor Owens » Fri May 31, 2019 10:50 am

Hello, and thank you in advance for reading/helping

A) I will have played 50 rated games in the period 1 July 2018 - 30 June 2019
B) I will have played 30 rated games in the period 1 Jan 2019 - 30 June 2019

Will my July 19 grade be calculated using A or B above?

Sorry if this seems a little pointless but I am hoping to play in some summer congresses and want to work out my eligibility

Many thanks
Trefor

All ECF grades are now based on at least a year's worth of games.

Congresses should say on the entry form whether they are basing eligibility on the January 2019 list or the July 2019 list, or for that matter a monthly FIDE list.

Thanet hedge their bets by saying "latest available grading list" but would offer a transfer or refund if someone enters a restricted section based on their January grade only to find their July grade makes them ineligible.
