SwissSys Feature for Helping with US Chess Rated Events

For Tournament Directors running events on, SwissSys has been kind enough to add a new feature, from version 10.1 on, that will hopefully make the process of submitting US Chess rated events much simpler. Even better, it's currently free to use for this purpose! Once you have completed an event on, you can download the crosstable and then open that file in SwissSys, which will open it up as a crosstable with all the players and results filled in. Then, using this new feature, SwissSys can import the US Chess ID numbers for any players that have registered with as a US Chess member and linked their ID number to their account. Once you have the US Chess IDs for all the players in your event you can then use SwissSys to create the US Chess rating files needed to upload into the TD/Affiliate area. Here is a video showing you how to get the crosstable from and the new feature in SwissSys.

Our thanks go out to both SwissSys and for their efforts in assisting US Chess Tournament Directors!
