About SchemingMind Titles

SchemingMind titles are awarded to players who have achieved exceptional results on the site. In order to earn a title, you need to achieve an appropriate minumum rating and also gain tournament 'norms', by placing in suitable mini-tournaments.

Players meeting the rating criteria, but not the normative criteria for each title are considered to be candidates for that title.

Only public mini-tournaments which finish with at least five (double round robin) or seven (single round robin) can be counted towards title norms; knockout tournaments do not count towards title norms.

The three levels of title are:

SchemingMind Senior Master: To earn a Senior Master title, you have to acheive an all-time maximum rating of 2,200+ and place first or second in at least three normative tournaments. For Standard Chess and Chess960 these must be tournaments with a minimum entry rating of 2,000. It is not possible to specify minimum entry rating for other chess variants, so the criteria for Chess Variant Senior Masters are more relaxed. SM Senior Master titles are awarded for life, but only current full members are listed on the title holders list.

SchemingMind Master: To earn a Master title, you have to acheive an all-time maximum rating of 2,000+ and place first, second or third in at least two normative tournaments. For Standard Chess and Chess960 these must be tournaments with a minimum entry rating of 1,800. It is not possible to specify minimum entry rating for other chess variants, so the criteria for Chess Variant Masters are more relaxed. SM Master titles are awarded for life, but only current full members are listed on the title holders list.

SchemingMind Expert (not shown here): Any player with a rating of over 1,800 may call themselves a SchemingMind Expert in that variant, there are no normative criteria for this title. Expert titles are only held whilst the required rating is maintained.

Please note that these titles are just for fun... no comparison with titles awarded by any other chess organisation is suggested or implied!
