I'm curious to know what happens in the following scenario:
I play a Swiss tournament and meet 3 rated players, I score at least half point but do badly overall. Then I play another Swiss tournament and meet another 3 rated players and do better this time.
Overall, my initial rating is below the rating floor of 1000 because of how badly I played against the first 3 rated players, and rating is not published.
My questions are:
- Are my first 6 results discarded and I have to play 5 new rated opponents?
- If yes to (1), do I have to score at least half a point in a tournament again before my results are considered for my initial rating?
- If no to (1), are all of my first 6 results kept, forcing me to keep playing until I have pooled enough results to be above the floor of 1000 within 26 months?
Follow up scenario:
Assume the same thing happens as above, but I played 3 rated players in my first tournament and 6 in the second. My performance in the first one is terrible, but I did well in the second. If you pooled all 9 games, my rating would be below the floor, but if you only looked at my last 6 games, my rating would be above the floor.
What happens in this case?
