Top Ratings by State and Province

This list was automatically generated at 2024-04-22 10:15:26 from the NASPA Member Database. It was inspired in April 2004 by CGP postings from Ed Liebfried, Jeff Clark, Rich Baker and many others. Corrections to the database may be made by the affected individuals, through Member Services.

For each state or province that has at least one ranked player, up to 10 top players are listed by current rating. Ranked players are those whose memberships are in good standing and have played in at least 14 fully-rated tournament games in the past 12 ratings months. States and provinces are listed according to the average rating of their top ten players. Areas with fewer than ten ranked players listed are assumed to have additional players rated 500 for the purposes of computing their average.
