RATINGS

In determining which section to enter, players should use their start of season Chess Scotland grading, as published in the CS grading list, July 2017. Players wishing to play in a higher section and who have a live CS grade or FIDE grade at the 31st December 2017 which would be high enough to qualify may do so but should state the section they wish to play in at the time of entry. Players cannot play down a section based on live grades. Latest FIDE or national ratings will be used for non-CS rated players.

Seedings for Sections A and B will be determined by FIDE ratings. Where a player does not have a FIDE rating their national rating will be used.

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.
