A manual rating adjustment is an upgrade to a rating which allows the player in question to accelerate up the ratings levels when he/she has been performing consistently well against higher rated opponents in a ratings run period.
The minimum requirement is:
- 6 wins for juniors (3 for adults), achieved in the current ratings run period against higher rated players and recorded exclusively in competitions graded 1 - 5, with at least a 60% win/loss percentage, at that higher level. In this context, a retirement does not qualify as a win but losses in any grade of competition count.
The cut off for applications is one week before the next ratings run is due to go live.
