Commentary and updates by Bob Flanagan
The Tri-State Chess Club uses a ladder rating system similar to the one used by USCF, Chess.com and Lichess.org. Players are initially rated based on their ratings on these sites, if they have a rating. If not, we make a judgement call based on how the player initially plays.
There is no cost to be part of the club's ladder! All matches are recorded and posted. Only active players are shown on the ladder.
