FCPL Handicapping Chess Tournament results

Please find below the results of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th handicapping tournaments that were held every Tuesday at Reef Mall.

1st Handicapping Tournament

 2nd Handicapping Tournament

3rd Handicapping Tournament

4th Handicapping Tournament
A few things of note:

1) Three of the four champions swept their respective games in claiming the championship: Loyola (5/5, five-round Swiss), Tabada (10/10, round robin) and Arellano (7/7, round robin).

2) You may want to look at the final scores of the fourth handicapping tournament – interesting, don't you think?

3) NM Robert Arellano scored a grand slam in the first three events – placing second in each – before finally capturing his first title in the fourth edition.

4) During the fourth handicapping tournament, time odds of division A players were revised as follows: A vs. B, from 5-4 to 5-3; A vs. C, from 5-3 to 5-2.5. It was also in the fourth edition wherein lower-division players finally barged into the winner's circle.

5) The second and fourth handicapping tournaments adopted the round robin format, while the other two were Swiss system events.

The handicapping ratings have likewise been updated after each event. Please find below the new handicapping ratings.

For those who have no handicap rating, their FCPL, NCFP or Fide rating will be used as the initial handicap rating.

The latest FCPL rating list can be found here.

Watch out for the next handicapping event!
