Is it a mistake in the fide rating list

Post by Uri Blass » Fri Sep 01, 2017 8:13 am

The following player has a fide rating 1723 and birth year 2012

He started to play in march 2014 and I do not believe a chess player played in tournament already at that small age.

Did not Capabalanca win from his father when he was very young say four years old.

rating 2012 with birth year 1723 would be much more suspicious :D

Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

I don't understand FIDE rating calculation rules anyhow.

This is one of the players who lost in 2017 vs. the kid you mentioned.
On his main rating card he is stated as with no std. rating.
OTH I see he has 12 games against rated players in the last 2 years in various tournaments and I thought only 9 are required?

I know 5 games should be enough today(in the past you needed 9 but fide changed that rule few years ago so 5 games were enough even in 2015

I can also see that this guy had fide rating

https://ratings.fide.com/individual_cal ... -04-01&t=0

He even lost 9.20 rating points in this tournament.

This is his last tournament


https://ratings.fide.com/individual_cal ... -04-01&t=0

He lost 29 elo rating points so he should have 1620-29.20=1591 based on my calculation.

I guess that he has 1591 but we do not see it directly in the fide list maybe because el-salvador did not pay some money for fide.

I can see that he has 1591 by looking in the following link

Note that it is not the first time that fide decide to force me to use these type of tricks only to find data and I dislike it.
