CFC has rated the November Rapid and Jay Khedkar Memorial


2022 November 26 Rapid


2022 Jay Khedkar Memorial

FIDE updates ratings once per month – this tournament will be rated by FIDE at the end of December.


FIDE has rated the 2022 November 26 Rapid

Only a few players had rating changes – those players had existing FIDE standard ratings and played other FIDE rated players in the tournament.  If an unrated player scores zero (against FIDE rated players) in their first event this score is
disregarded. It appears that 10 unrated FIDE players scored at least a point against FIDE rated players, so they are on their way to getting in the 5 games against FIDE rared opponents;

Per FIDE rule 7.14:
A rating for a player new to the list shall be published when it is based on 5 games against (FIDE) rated opponents. This need not be met in one tournament.
Results from other tournaments played within consecutive rating periods of not more than 26 months are pooled to obtain the initial rating.
