1 Answer 1


FIDE Rating Regulations effective from 1 July 2014


On the first day of each month, the QC shall prepare a list which incorporates the rated play during the rating period into the previous list. This shall be done using the rating system formula.


The rating period (for new players, see 7.14) is the period where a certain rating list is valid.


The following data will be kept concerning each player whose rating is at least 1000 as of the current list: FIDE title, Federation, Current Rating, FIDE ID Number, Number of Games rated in the rating period, Date of Birth, Gender and the current value of K for the player.


The closing date for tournaments for a list is 3 days before the date of the list; tournaments ending before or on that day may be rated on the list. Official FIDE events may be rated on the list even if they end on the last day before the list date.


A rating for a player new to the list shall be published only if it meets the following criteria:


If based on results obtained under 6.2, a minimum of 5 games.


If based on results obtained under 6.3, a minimum of 5 games played against rated opponents.


The condition of a minimum of 5 games need not be met in one tournament. Results from other tournaments played within consecutive rating periods totalling not more than 26 months, are pooled to obtain the initial rating.


The rating is at least 1000.


The rating is calculated using all his results as if they were played in one tournament (it is not published until he has played at least 5 games) by using all the rating data available.

Yes you are eligible.
