New January Ratings

Today has seen the new ratings published that will be used in the North Staffs League and Cup competitions for the remainder of the season. These replace the September 2022 ratings previously used. Some previous estimates have been updated with actual ratings, and some estimates will remain until further notice.

There are a couple of notable increases with Simon Layhe rising 82 points and 10 year old Oskar Jarzynski rising 77 points.

The new ratings should have little impact as there are no team limits in the league, although it may affect board order with the 100 point difference rule in one or two cases.

The other slight impact is that some members may no longer be eligible in Cup teams where rating limits apply at Under 1375 for the Perry Trophy, U1600 for the Intermediate Cup and U1825 for the Major Cup.
