I would imagine that the most recent rating (ie the one published 1/2 way through the tournament) would be the one that was used.

The reason this sounds most likely tome is that the rating calculation is geared towards modifying a single rating to a new single rating, rather than accumulating rating adjustments and applying those.

But I'm sure Bill will clarify with a definitive response.

The rating that is used is the rating at the time the tournament is actually rated not at the time it is played.
Thats why every effort is made to get tournament organisers to submit tournaments to the state rating officers as soon as they are completed.
