June 2017 ECF grades

A week or two ago, the ECF published the June 2017 month end grading list. For some reason they still only update gradings twice a year, despite the technology being available to do it almost by the day. They certainly could take a leaf out of the USCF book.

In any event, my own rating stayed where it was at the beginning of the year – 121, or 1608 Elo. I don’t know exactly which games they included in this update, but I played 28 games from 1 Jan to 30 Jun, so the grading will be fairly representative of my form. Although I have played some decent games, I still play far too inconsistently. Some games just seem to flow naturally, while in others I feel like an absolute beginner.

More on that inconsistency in my next post…
