        How does a player go about declaring their interest?

          Hi Victor:

          For an applicant to meet the condition of being "active", what is required?

          Is it 20 FIDE/CFC rated games in the prior 2 years?

              Usually, being active means playing at least 1 (one) game in last 12 months. It's slightly different now because of COVID.

                I previously heard from a couple of masters that it takes at least a full tournament to recover from being inactive, that they start to play their best in the last round. The other route is what Frank Anderson did in the 1950s, play a match with a local master at tournament time controls. Nowdays, a player could train by playing a secret match with another grandmaster online.
