It looks as if ECF grades will be disregarded, so only your FIDE would count.Matthew Webb wrote:I am not 100% sure but does this mean I become ineligible under the proposed "pre qualification" rules? I am untitled, FIDE: 2225 ECF: 238
The qualification routes for someone in your position would seem to be:-
Qualify via a "long" tournament such as London Classic FIDE Open, Hastings or even the Major Open, This is only one year at a time.
Qualify by playing and scoring points in lots of tournaments via the proposed Grand Prix
Qualify by pushing your FIDE rating to 2300 and claiming the FM title.
