What are Tournament Points?

Tournament points are accumulated by competing in Chess.com tournaments. There are four factors we look at that affect how many points a player gets in a tournament.

- A multiplier based on your final place finish (P)
- Projected number of rounds (R)
- Maximum group size (G)
- Average rating of all players in the tournament (S)

The Formula: **10 * (P * (1.5R) * G * (S/1000))**

**How to calculate "P"**

PLACE FINISH |
"P" VALUE |

1 |
.5 |

2 |
.25 |

3 |
.15 |

4 |
.1 * ((((T / 2) -2) - (p - 3)) / ((T / 2) - 2)) |

T= Total Players

p= Place Finish (p must be less than or equal to 1/2 of T to earn points)

**"R" is calculated as (G/A)^X = T, solve for X. **

**A = number of players who advance per group.**
