    Rating

  • The May ECF Rapid Play Rating List will be used to determine a player's rating. A players OTB rapid rating will be used, but if they do not have one, then their online rapid rating will be used. For players who do not appear in the Rapidly List, other lists may be used at the discretion of the organisers. Unrated players must provide evidence for the organisers to assess their playing strength and any previous known rating must be declared (players who have never been rated do not need to).
  • Rating Information - It is a condition of entry that players agree to their rating information being published on the ECF website.

    Other Information

  • No player may win more than one prize. In Championship sections, in the event of a tie for first place, players will be split and the trophy awarded to the winner after tie breaks are used. In the Open and Major sections, in the event of a tie for a money prize, money prizes will be shared equally among those that tied.
  • It is recommended that all players in all sections record their games. If you are unable to record then there is a great video on how to here: "https://www.chesskid.com/videos/how-to-keep-score-algebraic-notation"
