Rated Match Policy

On 15th March 2017, the UKBGF adopted its official results policy (PDF), which is designed to establish a standard for the quality of results posted to this site.

The UKBGF policy is supplemented by local policies, which give club managers the freedom to define local rules that work for the way their events are run.

The manager for London Open data on this site is Simon Morecroft.

The local policy for London Open is as follows:

Every completed tournament match played according to the official random draw at The London Open will contribute to individual players’ UKBGF ratings. The tournament director may impose a reduction in advertised match length but these matches will still be rated. A match in which penalty points have been awarded will be rated unless it becomes a walkover. Settled matches, unfinished matches, and walkovers will not be rated. Please note that matches in the one point shoot-out will not be rated.
