Motion 5B1. Motions regarding selection of players for the Olympiad teams.

Proposed by CFC masters representative Victor Plotkin

Motion #1. Selection of payers.

1). The winner of the last Canadian Closed that took place 5-36 months prior to the Olympiad and that has not been used as a qualification for a previous Olympiad.
2). The 4 highest ranked players as determined by formula.
3). If no tournament described in a1 took place, then the 5 highest ranked players as determined by formula.

b. The Women Team shall consist of 5 players, as follows:

2). The 4 highest ranked female players as determined by formula.
3). If no tournament described in b1 took place, then the 5 highest ranked female players as determined by formula.

c. If a player declines their invitation, a replacement player will be selected according to formula.

Motion 5B2. Motion #2. Formula for ranking payers.

a. The composition of the Teams shall be determined by formula, calculated 5 months before the start of Olympiad.

b. The formula takes the last published rating as a base for the Teams.

Motion 5B3. Motion #3. Rating for the Olympiad.

The formula uses FIDE rating only as a base for the National Team. The formula uses the average CFC-FIDE rating as a base for the Women Team. Any number is rounded to the nearest 1. 0.5 is rounded to 1. If 2 or more players have the same total number then the younger age will be used as the tie-breaker.

Motion 5B4. Motion #4. Bonuses/penalties for the last Canadian Closed and Canadian Women.

Bonuses/penalties for performance in the last Canadian Closed or last Canadian Women, respectively, that took place 5-36 months prior to the Olympiad and that has not been used as qualification for a previous Olympiad:

+20 points for 2nd place
+10 points for 3rd place
-10 points if the player did not participate or withdrew.

This bonus/penalty will be added/subtracted to any base rating number (last rating, average rating or highest rating).

Motion 5B5. Motion #5. Bonuses for young players.

5 points for every full year of age under 23. This bonus will be added to any base rating number ((last rating, average rating or highest rating).

Motion 5B6. Motion #6. Bonus/penalties for performance in the last Olympiad:

(Points won subtracted by the expected number of points according to rating) multiplied by 10. 0 points if the player did not participate.

This bonus/penalty will be added/subtracted to any base rating number (last rating, average rating or highest rating). The number is rounded to the nearest 1. 0.5 is rounded to 1.



Motion 5B7. Motion regarding rating of games played outside the CFC

Moved by Leblanc seconded by Pierre Denommee:

Handbook article 436 pertains to CFC members applying to have their results in foreign FIDE rated events rated by the CFC for a fee of $25 provided the CFC is notified a month in advance. I move that FQE and USCF events be added to this article. In the same article, new CFC players with USCF or FIDE ratings are started with whichever of those ratings under which the player has played the most recent games. I move to add FQE to that criteria. Some editorial changes to the wording would be necessary so that FQE members are not referred to as foreign players or non-residents.
