YATSL 2017-b Starts!
Although officially on 1 July, YATSL 2017-b may start now. Pairings and tables are published online.
17 players attended, 8 of whom were entitled to play in League A. I merged all other people to a single League B to avoid small leagues, this should not be considered moving players upwards.
The average rating of players entitled to play in League A is 6137.875. I decided to make use of the opportunity given to me by the 6th Paragraph of the Leagues Section in the Rules and, taking into account the circumstances of the last few days in YATSL 2017-a League A, I moved Charles Robinson (AREA: 6306) from League B to League A.
Please also note that the number of players dropping and advancing are given provided the next YATSL is organised in this formula. I cannot promise it. I will keep the 9-players size of the League but note that the numbers are balanced so that each League ends up with 8 players to save one place for a BGC player.
You may start your games now and let the best win!
