FICGS titles

Hello Spiros.

FEM, FIM, FSM, FGM are titles awarded by FICGS.

Requirements are not the same as in ICCF but it quite looks like : ICCF titles are EM (Email Master), IM (International Master), SM (Senior Master), GM (Gran Master).

Note : In rating list, a GM player could be a FIDE GM or ICCF GM...

See rules (11.7 - 11.8) :


Best wishes.
