In a Swiss style tournament you do not know whether you will play the higher rated players. They could do badly leaving you, the tournament winner, without your norm since you beat only low-rated players.
In an all play all the organizers should be able to figure out what score will earn a norm.
Is there a calculator to do this? Doesn't seem to be fun to do this manually. http://www.fide.com/fide/handbook.html?id=58&view=article
This boils the rules down a little. See Calculating Grandmaster and International Master norms.
Hi, I just saw this old message. Even in a round robin tournament the required scores for a norm can vary between the players in the tournament. The requirement for a player can even vary depending on who the player wins against.
I have made norm calculator at my web site. Give it the ratings of known opponents and the corresponding results, and it can calculate if a player have made a title perfomance, or which average rating for unknown players and score is required to make one. Find it at http://skaktal.dk/en/norm.php. Enjoy yourself!
I finally had to create a spreadsheet to calculate norms.
Your calculator works great. Looks like it takes care of increasing one opponent rating if it is too low. I tripped on that one recently.
I did have a bit of trouble entering a draw until I figured out I could paste the "½" from "½ for draw".
Yes, it knows about the adjusted rating floor. It knows that won games may be ignored. It knows that if the norm requirements are exceeded by one or more full points, then the length of the tournament is considered to be extended by that number of number of games. What it fails to handle, is the titles and nationalities of the opponents.
I did not consider that "½" can be hard to enter as there is a key for that character on Danish keyboards. What alternative character would you like to use to indicate draws?
It may save a few people some frustration if .5 was accepted. Failing that, perhaps "D" or maybe just add a note that the "½" can be pasted.
Now .5 and even just 5 is accepted to indicate draws by the norm calculator at http://skaktal.dk/en/norm.php. Thank you for the suggestion.
