ICCF-US 2024-3 Rating List Top 50 List

 

Using the 2024-3 ICCF ELO Rating List, in effect for the period from Julyl 1, 2024 until September 30, 2024, Bob Rizzo, ICCF-US Titles Officer has compiled the latest ICCF-US Top 50 Rated Active Players list.]

 

Please Note: Starting with the 2023-4 list, ratings are calculated according to the new rating rules, and in many instances those formulae generated larger changes than would have been expected from the old methodology.  To account for the large percentage of draws, the new system awards wins to a much greater extent.  Whereas the old rating system would change a typical rating by approximately 5 points for a win, instead some players will benefit by as much as 25 points or more. The amount of change is influenced by the new RD factor that now appears in the ratings list.

 

Note 2: The average rating of the Top 50 ICCF-US members increased by about 7-1/2 points from the 2024-2 ratings list.  This jump may be a direct consequence of the revised rating system.  Three of the five biggest rating gainers in our Top 50 list received a pair of “exceeded time” wins to account for their ratings gains.

 

 

For 2024-3 we have 5 additions from the 2024-2 list.
