The November FIDE Rating will be used to determine a player’s FIDE rating. If a player does not have a FIDE Rating, we will use the Chess Scotland grading list. The former Dean Parish Church, built in 1905, offers spacious playing conditions The Dean Halls hosted the 2019 Scottish Chess Championships Light refreshments are available

Ratings

The November FIDE Rating will be used to determine a player’s FIDE rating. If a player does not have a FIDE Rating, we will use the Chess Scotland grading list.

For players who do not appear in the standard list, other lists may be used at the discretion of the organisers. Ungraded players must provide evidence for the organisers to assess their playing strength and any previous known grade must be declared.

For ECF rated players the conversion that will be applied is as per the CS Chief Grading Officers recommendation. ECF *10+180 = CS, so an ECF player rated 100 will convert to 1180 CS.

Rate of Play

Each player will have 20 minutes plus a 10 second increment per move from move 1
