MCF have in recent years adopted the chess rating data of affiliate Chess Association of Selangor (CAS) as the official National Rating list. For easy reference the current October list can be found at this site and this will be updated from time to time.
Affiliates are urged to use this list as well as submit tournament results to MCF ( under portfolio of MCF Council member - IA Lim Tse Pin) for incorporation in the National Rating record. Other chess organisers may also refer to this record to rank the players in tournaments.
