Hmm... I gathered what was going on. Just didn't see the point in stupid games, that's all!

Oh, that's disappointing. What happened then? I thought this was the grand unveiling of the new enhancements? :(

Interesting rumours flying around at Worcester. Player A comes in and informs me that the grades are due out at 10:00. Player B then tells me 09:30. Player C also says 09:30 and I ask him where he got his info from, Player B comes the reply. 11:00 comes and goes still no grades. Player B wanders past so I ask him where he got his info from, Player C he replies! Player D says Player E told him 11:00. I'm still waiting to find out who told player E! In the meantime everyone who walks past the bookstall is asking if they are out yet.

Yay, I have a grade for the first time :D. Higher than I was expecting, too. Why does it list me as "London *" as well as Warwick? In both tournaments I've entered, I put down Warwick as my club (though I have been playing in the Hammersmith internal, but that hasn't finished yet).

Edit: Oh dear, in the excitement I forgot one thing. Thanks to Carl and everyone else who works on the grading.

Thanks Carl. Everyone is happy now, (that the grades have come out - not necessarily happy with their grade)!

Cheers Carl. :P

I seem to be missing a game, which has taken me from my predicated rating of 144 to 147. I'm not sure whether to be happy or complain. :oops:

First posted grade since 1998 and it's the highest it's been since about 1995: hurrah!

Shame it's a dodgy 'E' grade, based only on 12 games over 3 seasons ;-)

I'm sure those who beat you won't complain about it being dodgy! :D

Actually, there is a serious point there. Should results against A grades count more than against E grades?

I suspect not, as E-grades are just as likely to be underestimates as overestimates, and so it ~should all balance out
True glory lies in doing what deserves to be written; in writing what deserves to be read.
