Ratings

Top Ratings by State and Province

This list was automatically generated from the NSA Ratings Database and the NSA Player Database. It was inspired in April 2004 by CGP postings from Ed Liebfried, Jeff Clark, Rich Baker and many others. Corrections to these databases should be sent respectively to Joe Edley (ratings) and John Chew (players).

For each state or province that has at least one active rated player, up to $opt_n top players are listed by current rating. Active players are those who have played in at least one fully-rated tournament in the past twelve ratings months. States and provinces are listed according to the average rating of their top ten players. Areas with fewer than ten active players listed are assumed to have additional players rated 500 for the purposes of computing their average.

Students may be listed representing either their home state/province or the state/province in which they are studying, whichever they prefer. Others must be legal residents of the area that they would like to represent.
