In a long time control (90+30) team championship game I showed up on time but wrong city and lost the game - will this affect my rating? I arrived at the wrong location and missed the game.

  • What do you mean by wrong city? Can you give more information?

1 Answer 1


According to the latest FIDE rating regulations your game was not played and therefore will not be rated. Both players must make at least one move before the game can be rated

  1. Unplayed Games 5.1

Whether these occur because of forfeiture or any other reason, they are not counted. Any game where both players have made at least one move will be rated.
