Improved Club Ratings And Statistics

Posted: 12/05/2013 by Ian in Club News

graphChanges to member ratings now reflect the number of games previously played. If a player has played 30 or fewer games the number of rating points at stake for that individual  in that particular game (referred to as the K-factor in the ELO system) will be 32. In theory, after a sufficient number of games have been played, ratings should become more stable and to reflect this the rating points at stake (ie the K-factor) will be reduced to 16 after an individual has played more than 30 games. A full explanation is here. Ratings have been reworked for all rated tournaments since 1/1/13 to reflect the modification. Members can now also review their own individual crosstable against other club members for all rated games here.
