29 Jul 2013. Check your new grade. The new ECF grading list is out. The site has been redesigned making it simpler to check your results. The help file on the site states: "Players are advised to check that their current-season results (as published on this site) are correct. Please check as the season progresses: don't save everything for the July/August logjam. Remember, however, that games will not appear at once. Leagues usually report only twice a year, and congresses vary in promptness. In the case of incorrect or missing results, your first contact should normally be with the organisers of the event. The ECF can only grade what organisers send. But it will always correct errors which can be confirmed by the organiser, by the local grader, or indeed by the opponent. There will be cases where it is best to contact the Grading Administrator direct. WCL results are graded by Paul Sharratt.
