In 2022 we once again started using the Area Rating List which has been brought back to life by Doug Rimmer and his team.
ASO reports results to the AREA Rating list. Games adjudicated to be “too close to call” will be reported as draws.
These ratings are used for seeding games and determining tie-breakers in the tournament (see tournament rules).
For players who do not appear on the the AREA ratings list the ASO Directors will assign you with a temporary rating, based on your level of experience. It will be used for seeding purposes.
