How would Power Ratings affect table counts?

 

            Club owners and tournament volunteers will find this information useful.

 

            Table counts at clubs and Tournaments would increase if all players were rated accurately and attended at the same rate as current accurately rated players.

 

            Players that play at a higher level than their rating win more often and go to more tournaments than players that play at the same level as their rating.  Players that play at a lower level than their rating win less often and go to fewer tournaments than players that play at the same level as their rating.  The opposite happens at the clubs.  The following charts look at the almost 20,000 players that have Power Ratings and a Masterpoint rating during the past 24 months.  About 500 rated players, mostly non members, are excluded because they have no Masterpoint total.  They would all be underrated.  The ACBL has about 167,000 members.

            The next to the last line shows the total number of sessions currently played by this group of players.  The last line shows the number of sessions this group would play if all players were rated accurately and they play at the rate accurately players play.

 

            These charts are based on underrate.  Underrate is the difference between your Masterpoint total converted into a Power Rating, and your actual Power Rating.  Click here to convert Masterpoints to Power Rating.
