Recapitulation of new tournament format as of 14 January 2017
A and B
AA, AAA, Semi-PROS et PROS
That means, for example, if a AA plays against a Pro 8+1 he will race to 6 but will benefit from a one game handicap to add to his score sheet at the onset. The Pro player will thus be giving the equivalent of 3 games.
If a AA plays against a Pro 8+2 he will benefit from a two game handicap. The Pro 8+2 will be giving the equivalent of 4 games. And on it goes for AAA and SP who will receive from the start one or two handicap games from a Pro while playing to their number. Only the Pros will have that 8+1 or 8+2 rating. ABO will determine, case by case, who are the +1 and the +2.
