This is the April 2013 revision of the January list. It is not a new grading list. It is still based on games played up to 31st December 2012. But it takes account of recent corrections, and about 20 more grades have been revised (see highlighting). The “base point” for revisions remains the corrected January version (published 4th February), and highlighting indicates revisions since then.
To see a player’s profile, click his grading reference (“Ref”). The profile shows his history of grades back to 1994, and gives access to his detailed game results, for previous periods as well as the current one. Monthly revisions will always update the game results shown. The present revision shows all games reported up to 24th April. Please check your new games as the season progresses, and report any errors promptly.
Players without a current grade
The database includes everyone, right up to this month’s new players. The current total is 102,530. By default the lookups will not show everyone: you will see only players with a current grade. To see everyone, check the “include ungraded players” box. Note that deceased players are treated as ungraded for this purpose, even if they have a current grade.
