FINAL TABLES: SEASON 2018-19

This event is CCF's Winter season (September - April) individual long play club championship and is the "main event" for the majority of our club members.  Anyone wishing to play in FIDE Rated Divisions must become a GOLD member of the ECF.  The prize(s) to be awarded to the top player (or 3) is yet to be advised - it is / they are international tournament "credits" that the winner(s) must use to enter the August 2020 international event for GM and/or IM norms; if the money is not used for that, the value of the entry fee for that person will be forfeit.  Anything left over may be used to enter the following season's club activities.  

Players apply to enter by 1st August each year and are then placed into divisions of up to 12 players (the bottom division sometimes runs on a Swiss system and accommodate any number).  Please note that you cannot lay conditions to an entry (ie. which division you play in), but we will always do our best to give everyone what they want without compromising the structure of the competition.  

HOW PLAYERS ARE ALLOCATED TO DIVISIONS
Soon after the end of July, we will list everyone who has applied to play in the club championship this season.  We will look to see what the next number up divisible by 12 is (which will determine the number of divisions) and the start the process of allocating who plays where.  If there is a number not exactly divisible by 12, we will need a gap (or gaps) somewhere; with some flexibility as to HOW we do it, we will leave an appropriate number of slots in each division for late entries of a suitable rating and/or grade and allocate the rest.  We would not want more that 2 empty slots in any division ideally.

Starting with the top division, we would allocate slots for anyone still involved who finished 8th or above last season - and would then add the winner of the Championship.  We then list everyone left in the whole club who has applied for the club championship - and allocate the remaining slots to the highest rated and/or graded player(s) on that list.  We then move to the Championship, where those who finished 8th and above last season are joined with anyone who finished 9th & below in last season Premiership but who did not get retained in the top division + the winner of Division 1.  After that we again list everyone in the club and choose the appropriate number of players from the top of the rating and/or grading list.

The procedure is then followed division by division until everyone has been allocated to a division.  Once allocated we will not accept appeals to "promote" anyone to fill a slot in a higher division at the expense of leaving too many slots in a lower division.  We appreciate that the chess world is full of player who (legitimately or otherwise!) believe that they should be playing higher opponents than where they are in rating/grade, but ratings and grades do give an up-to-date guide as to where you are at, so we feel it reasonable to stick to them.......!
