    Mysterious K.

    I have seen a new and mysterious coefficient, K = 33

    The B.02 Handbook says nothing about this.

    8.56
    K is the development coefficient.
    K = 40 for a player new to the rating list until he has completed events with at least 30 games.
    K = 20 as long as a player's rating remains under 2400.
    K = 10 once a player's published rating has reached 2400 and remains at that level subsequently, even if the rating drops below 2400.
    K = 40 for all players until their 18th birthday, as long as their rating remains under 2300.
    If the number of games (n) for a player on any list for a rating period multiplied by K (as defined above) exceeds 700, then K shall be the largest whole number such that K x n does not exceed 700.
    The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.

    The player has 21 games for the rating period so for this rating period their K is 33.

    Thanks Kevin for that clarification.

    Here are the minutes from the Baku Meeting regarding this which you also attended: https://www.fide.com/images/stories/...6/Annex_78.pdf

    I refer specifically to 8.56 on Session 2 of the minutes.
