In line with Chess SA Online Regulations 16BB
Chess SA will introduce two (2) new ratings in addition to the current “Over the Board” rating as published in the current Chess SA Rating Regulations. See clause 4 for more information.
- Chess SA OTB Rating (current)
- Chess SA Online Rating (new)
- Chess SA Hybrid (new)
This change to the current Chess SA Online Regulations will open options to organisers (Regions and Provinces) to decide how to serve the needs of their members best. There is a freedom of choice to decide on their ow strategy for selecting teams and awarding accolades within their sub structure. It also brings comfort in the fact that OTB ratings will be protected for the more conservative players.
