Current FIDE ratings

FIDE ratings – last updated 31st January 2017

Not every tournament is FIDE-rated; there are certain criteria that must be met.   In Ireland, the Irish Championships, the Armstrong, Heidenfeld and Ennis leagues and the top sections at the Leinsters (Malahide) are about the only FIDE-rated tournaments.   Many week-long tournaments across Europe are FIDE rated as well.

In order to get an initial provisional FIDE rating, you must play at least three FIDE-rated players in the one tournament, scoring at least half a point and getting a performance rating above 1200. Any other tournament will be discarded. Once you have an initial provisional rating, all subsequent games against FIDE-rated players count towards your rating. A provisional rating is held until 9 games have been played.
