In the Bury Area Chess League, qualification for Player of the Year in each division is based on percentage score, rather than actual score as in the Suffolk League. Hence, someone scoring 8 out of 9 would win over another playing scoring 9 out of 11. Suggestion for the Suffolk League – isn’t this a better way to judge this competition?
A minimum of eight games need to be played in order to qualify (two-thirds of the available games). Games won by default count towards the minimum number of games needed to qualify.
