YOUR START-UP PROVISIONAL RATING
If the basic information that you email us is OK, you will receive
a provisional rating of 1200. Then during your first 10 games, you
will earn 120 rating pts for each win, 60 rating pts for each draw
and drop only 20 rating pts for each loss. Once you have completed
10 games, you'll earn +10 rating pts for each win, +5 pts for each
draw and drop only 5 pts for each loss. Our 21 most active members
are listed on this RATINGS page. 

YOU CAN PLAY GAMES BY EMAIL AND/OR SERVER 
You can request team matches where you play one or more opponents
from other chess clubs, and you can even arrange your own games vs
individual opponents via email or server. Each non-blitz game that
you play will qualify for rating points if you list it on our site
before move 3 is played.

THESE ARE OUR 6 RATING CATAGORIES:  
Above 2800 = IGM International Grandmaster
 2600-2799 =  GM Grand Master 
 2400-2599 =  IM International Master
 2200-2399 =  NM National Master
 2000-2199 =  CM Candidate Master
Under 2000 =  AV Average Strength

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT
Once you have completed 100 games, you qualify for a 
lifetime achievement which means your rating category 
cannot fall lower, even if your rating numbers drop.

Here are the guidelines for "CC" correspondence chess
games played by EMAIL and "RTC" real time chess games
