Green Point Calculator

With this calculator you can calculate the green point scale for a particular event. Just enter the top award, bottom award and number of places due for awards and it will calculate the intermediate places.


These scales are for use in National Congresses/Competitions only wherein the top award, the minimum award and the number of awards are defined in the Event Programme and are based on the estimated number of tables in play, the number of boards being played, whether there are awards for matches won and the prestige value of the tournament.

Awards for matches won

Where these are awarded (e.g. Swiss events, multiple teams) then the formula is to divide the number of boards in the match by 29, rounding any fractions upwards. So:

Boards: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
MPs: 0.07 0.11 0.14 0.18 0.21 0.25 0.28 0.32 0.35

Awards for a draw are one-half of the above, again rounding any fractions upwards (e.g. 0.13 in a 7-board match).
