Ungraded players entering the Open and Major sections must give full information regarding their playing ability, including previous results and any grading held previously. Failure to do so may render a player ineligible for a prize. The August revision of the July 2017 Rapidplay ECF grading list has precedence over other lists. If a player has a Standardplay grade but no Rapidplay grade the Standardplay grade will be treated as the player's grade.
