Does anybody knows how games are rated (FIDE rating) when a new list is published while playing a tournament?
Let's say I'm playing a tournament starting at April and ending at June. Starting ratings are those listed in April list, but before the tournament ends there will be new lists at May and June, and tournament results will be reported at June.
There are several options:
A) All games are rated as players rating were those in April list (the starting ones).
B) All games are rated as players rating were those in June list (when the tournament is reported to FIDE).
C) April games are rated with April ratings, May ones with May ratings, and June ones with June ratings (it seems strange, but it is how it works for Catalan ratings).
I could find no response to this question at FIDE handbook. The only clue could be article 8.4:
8.4 If an unrated player receives a published rating before a particular tournament in which he has played is rated, then he is rated as a rated player with his current rating, but in the rating of his opponents he is counted as an unrated player.
which makes me think that all games are rated with the starting ratings (option A).
