  • COVAID-19 Rating Bonus

    I'd like to congratulate the first seven players to earn the 200 point COVAID-19 bonus:
    Anni Guo, Markham ON
    Kaitlyn Tao, Windsor ON
    Drake Chen, BC
    Aiden Li, Kitchener, ON
    Edward Enns, Vanvouver, BC
    Li Geng, Victoria, BC
    Philip Harris, Vancouver, BC

    Aiden Li actually earned the bonus twice and he has now reached the 1200 level.

    The COVAID-19 bonus was introduced as a temporary measure to encourage participation in CFC Quick rated
    online events with time controls of at least 25 minutes per player including increments.
    To earn the bonus, a player must play a minimum of 10 games and achieve a Quick rating that is 200 points higher
    than their Regular rating. At that point their Regular rating is boosted by 200 points. The bonus can only be earned once
    for players above 1200 and twice for players below 1200.
    Only players with a Regular rating below 2000 are eligible.

    I need to make a small clarification regarding the rating boundaries for eligibility:

    Those who have initial regular ratings less than 1000, are eligible for a second bonus of up to 200 points.
    But for the second bonus, the maximum new regular rating is 1200.

    Those who have initial regular ratings greater than 1000 are
    eligible for one 200 point bonus with the maximum new regular rating being 2000.
