March 2020 Ratings updated

The latest updated ACF ratings (and current FIDE rating) for our members are available, listed here.

It is also pleasing to see that Tina Deng has now achieved an ACF rating (160)! She has been coming to the club since April 2018, but only recently scored a result, allowing her to get an ACF (and presumably FIDE) rating. She played 34 rateable games between September 2018 rating period and the December 2019 rating period. This is a great example of perseverance and dedication to improve, even though she scored zero and (usually)  had a bye in each event she entered.

ACF ratings from June

The Australian Chess Federation publishes new ratings every quarter. The June ratings and the change in our club ratings can be found here. Congratulations to the following members who have increased their rating by more than 80! And a special cheer for Niruruthi, for an excellent improvement, who had the best improvement (293) in Australia.
