However, the international FIDE ratings lag up to 200 points behind the national USCF ratings. The sheer number of underrated youngsters has transformed FIDE points into a precious commodity at local events. I counted an incredible 40 NorCal kids who have earned a published FIDE rating, yet more than half are rated below 2000. Most shocking to me: the youngest two were born in 2005!
Kudos to NM Colin Chow for gaining an impressive 100 FIDE points in the past 8 months. His USCF rating also rocketed up to 2324. Well done making the Sacramento Chess Club proud!
