BCCA Ratings

BCCA Ratings

Due to changes made to ICCF Tournament rules the only way to ensure that ALL BCCA members may play in our tournaments which are played on the ICCF Webserver is to make these games ICCF unrated .

We are therefore setting up a BCCA rating system.  This means all BCCA games  played from the start of our season from the first  of September 2021 will be BCCA rated..

R1 = R0 +k(W-We)

Where R1 is the new grade, R0 is the present grade , k is 20 or 40, W is the player’s total score for results , We is the expected total score based on the FIDE table 8.1b at https://handbook.fide.com/chapter/B022017
