Chess rapid tournaments : Rating ranges

Chess Rapid M waiting list has been deleted in order to change rating ranges for all rapid tournaments (increased by 100 points), sorry about that.

It should help players to reach the 2400, 2000 and 1600 elo barriers...

Rapid categories

Well thibault we had a long discussion about this with a lot of input and agreement you stated that you would implement the following: "Rapid M (2100+), Rapid A (1900-2100), Rapid B (1700-1900) ... ~200" you have completely gone back on this and your new range is hopeless - you will get 1900 and maybe some 2000 players thats it nowhere for 2000 +_ - 2300 players to go Please check the archives reconsider and implement the range agreed to

Rapid categories

Hello Andrew, I remember well our discussion :) I made this quick change because I saw most waiting lists empty and I had no more time, but the idea is still to create 200 points range categories (the only difference is the 2300+ one, I have to find a way to keep quite coherent names and rating ranges, working on, maybe a SM category 2300+).

Here we are ! New chess rapid tournaments categories have been created (SM, D, E).

Thibault you can never make everyone happy. I would like to have seen a rapid rating starting at 2200. But never mind, I wont be entering in any for quite sometime until hopefully when I get to the 2300 barrier. Gonna be very difficult. Impossible in any of the rapid tourney windows. Wayne
