Apologies if there is a previous thread on this.

A player rated NSWJCL 636 has just joined our club. What does this translate to in ACF terms?

For ratings less than 600 then adult = 2*J
For rating greater than 600 adult = (J*1.25) + 450

Refer to http://www.chesschat.org/showpost.php?p=15491 for more information on the NSWJCL system.

Thanks Bill. That seems reasonable. The NSWJCL rating in question was actually from a late-2003 booklet and he may have a more recent one. The conversion there comes out at 1245. In his first rated game against a player rated just over 1500 he won, but was somewhat fortunate as he had been two pawns down but managed to complicate in his opponent's time trouble, hence obtaining a won position on the board. I thought he played at about 1400 strength but in one game it's hard to tell.

i had a rating of 441 from playing school games, in the sydney metro area
that means my ACF rating is 882? how accurate is that rating? and where did you get that conversion formula from? i'm just curious by the way. How would you get an accurate ACF rating, like how many tournaments would you have to play? and what does it take to get a proper rating?
