ICCF-US 2024-2 Rating List Top 50 List

 

Using the 2024-2 ICCF ELO Rating List, in effect for the period from April 1, 2024 until June 30, 2024, Bob Rizzo, ICCF-US Titles Officer has compiled the latest ICCF-US Top 50 Rated Active Players list.]

Please Note: Starting with the 2023-4 list, ratings are calculated according to the new rating rules, and in many instances those formulae generated larger changes than would have been expected from the old methodology. To account for the large percentage of draws, the new system awards wins to a much greater extent. Whereas the old rating system would change a typical rating by approximately 5 rating points for a win, instead some players will benefit by as much as 25 points or more. The amount of change is influenced by the new RD factor that now appears in the ratings list.

For 2024-2 we have 3 additions from the 2024-1 list.
