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.
