No Points Awarded for Win

  • #1

    Hello all,


    I apologise if this query is misplaced, but I just finished a game on Vienna Game tournament. The game ended with a Scholar's Mate following the Frankenstein-Dracula variation, but no points were awarded?


    The tournament is rated, so I'm a little confused and was hoping someone could shed light on it?

    I thought that any game going three full moves was rated.  You started with one and a half moves already played and mated on move 5, so it  seems you would have reached the three move threshold.

    As a result, I have no idea why it wasn't rated. Write an email to support.

    Thematic games don't start counting moves until the first one played by the player. Games would need to go at least 4 moves per player on timeout (which I thought only counted in non-tourney games) but checkmate should give a rating change no matter how many moves. I would bug report it for sure.


    4-move rule for rating changes on timeout and resignation:
