    It appears my decision to travel down to Hobart rather then Devonport was a good one! My blitz always has been better than my rapid

    and im stuck at number 11 with a rating of 1618
    What is interesting is the huge gap of 232 points between number 4 and 5 and that 1-4 and 5-10 are all grouped together ratings wise

    You only went down 10 points and dropped from 10th to 12th, seems rather unfair to me!

    I'm guessing the system had reset Michael Baldini as unrated (probably on the 2nd. anniversary of Neville's tournament), since it now seems to show he's only played 1 rated game (vis. his win for us in the Ledger Interclub). On current form, he should be somewhere in the Tas. top 10 (IMHO).

    A little harsh if so. Completed ratings hang around no matter how long since the last game. We periodically hear pensioners being indignant at suggestions that their twenty year old ratings may be not entirely meaningful.

    My guess was based on this from the ACF Ratings page:

    Players are reset as unrated if:

    They have played less than 9 rated games in total and have not played in the last 2 years.

    It's unfortunate. There are not that many classic-rated tournaments and over the years Michael plays in one every now and then but never two close enough together to get a rating.

    At least his quick rating is available for seeding purposes.

    Posts on the WA top lists thread have drawn my attention to the excellent historic resource that is The Gap Chess Club's list of scanned ACF ratings booklets:

    http://www.thegapchessclub.org.au/ra...atings.htm#acf

    For those with an interest in historic Tasmanian ratings, I should note that there was a period of chaos in the mid-1990s. Many tournaments were not being submitted for ratings for whatever reason. This was finally fixed in the April 1997 rating list when 16 Tasmanian tournaments from 1995 and 1996 were processed simultaneously, resulting in Tasmanians swamping the "busiest players" lists.

    Here is a revised copy of the list from #1, now covering 1997-now:

    Code:

    Reg Harvey back in the classic top ten at a high of #6 after winning the Burnie Club Championships; he was last in the list in December 2004. Scott Cohen in the top ten for the first time after a strong second in the Hobart Club Champs.

    The new Tasmanian classic top ten based on the unofficial lists is Friebe, Dyer, Rout, Bonham, McMahon, Harvey, Peirce, D Rolph, Cohen and Smith.

    Surprised my Quick rating went up; I won the Rapid but both my blitz tournaments this period were longer and not very good.
