Difference between class A / rapid A

FICGS__CHESS__CLASS_A Tournaments admits chess players with 2000-2200 ELO and FICGS__CHESS__RAPID_A is for 1900-2100 ELO players. Why there is this difference?

Hello Andres.

The reason is that many players asked for this to help players rated 2000-2100 to reach the 2200 mark.

The main reason is that in one division you are one of the top rated players and in the other you are one of the bottom rated players.

Also, by having the rating bands as they are means it is more likely that different players will meet, which increases interest and also makes the rating system more accurate.

Thank you very much for your answer. And someone knows when FICGS__CHESS__WORLD_CHAMPIONSHIP waiting list is going to be open, and when is the estimated date to start the games? Thank you in advance.

Next chess WCH

The next WCH cycle should start on july 1st, 2010. The waiting list should be open in about 1 month.

of course some people hold completely the opposite opinion and find these rating bands ridiculous.

Of course :) That's why there's no such easy decision.
