Maverick Wins CCRL Division 7 (and Gets a CCRL Rating)

Over the past month Graham Banks has been running the Division 7 competition. I was delighted when Maverick managed to win with a score of 27.5 out of 44 games. After nine round Maverick languished in the bottom half of the table. It managed to fight back and win! During the tournament I logged onto Graham’s site quite a few time and it was nice to chat with Graham and Erik. There were many nail-biting games – not good for the blood pressure!

Graham then ran a gauntlet competition for Maverick to get enough games for a rating. It managed a respectable rating of 2317 ELO on the CCRL scale. You can see the details here:

Maverick’s CCRL Rating

As I mentioned on a previous post, Maverick doesn’t do so well at slow time controls, so I have happy it came out above 2300 ELO on CCRL.

Many thanks to Graham for taking the time to test Maverick!

  • Congrats Steve on a well deserved win! It was fun to check the games in the evening and chat with you and Graham.
