My coutry is affliated to FIDE. I had played in many blitz and rapid chess tournaments. But FIDE is very strict to give you an official chess rating. You must finish certain number of games in standard time, etc.
Almost all the tournaments in my city are rapid time, weekend Swiss tournaments, so it is a little bit difficult to have a FIDE rating in my country.
I had beaten, many strong titled players (it would not of a very good taste to give their names).
Besides, I think that people gives too much importance to the ratings. I'm interested in playing ggod chess regardless of the rating.
26 ( +1 | -1 ) fideto rech fide rating you must play minimaly 9 FIDE rated players ( is possible in 2 tournaments). minimal time control is 105 minut per 40 moves and 25 minutes to the end. And, of course, minimal FIDE is now 1800 (it was changed in 2002, former limit was 2000)
19 ( +1 | -1 ) minimal FIDE what?What do you mean by "minimal FIDE is now 1800"? Do you mean that the 9 FIDE rated players you play have to be at least 1800 rated or higher? I am a bit confused by that...
25 ( +1 | -1 ) Fide ratingEveryone should have a fide rating, fide will make more money to sponsor more tournament and take care a bit more of there GM and IM. So many good GM had to quite chess because they can't live with it.
20 ( +1 | -1 ) FIDE wants more moneyPeople arent stupider. FIDE needs more money. If you are sending tournament results to FIDE you must pay 5 CHF for each player who played tournament...
