    ESR just came out for Eastern.

    I don't see any evidence of them wanting to make a viable 5.0 level.

    Couple of people got bumped up to 5.5, and a couple got bumped to 5.0 who should never have been in 4.5, and a couple got bumped down to 4.5 that didn't do to badly in 5.0.

    All in all I would say more moved out of 5.0 than moved into 5.0. About double. I think 4 guys got bumped out of 5.0 (2 up and 2 down) and 2 got bumped into 5.0.

    Although I have no inside information, I very much doubt that ESRs will attempt any form of realignment. If there is another realignment, I would expect it to be in the national rankings where the whole country can be done at once.

    Georgia has announced its ESRs. My team came second in its division (out of eight) and nobody got bumped up; one person got bumped down - quite reasonably - he was double-bumped in 2009 year-end, and that was too much for him.

    Yea ... last year you could not have predicted a big bump from our early start ratings. I think the early start ratings are simply snapshots of the current dynamic ratings. They take place at all different times of the year depending on the region. They do not yet reflect national tourneys for comparison. I would think that statistically the only time you could make a major change to ratings would be when all ratings are recalculated following the conclussion of the national events.

    I have a problem with this.

    So I was playing in a tourney this weekend and I was talking to a league co-ordinator from one region who was also a player and captain in 2 districts outside the area of which he was a co-ordinator.

    During our conversation he mentioned 4-5 of his players that he knew would bumped up and gave their ratings to the 100ths place. He claimed that last year he was in line to get bumped up until sectionals where he did poorly enough that his rating dropped just into the 4.0 range. He went on to say that if he had a computer handy he could have looked up my exact rating.

    I dont know if he was full of BS and trying to impress me, but if what he was saying was true it certainly gave him an advantage in manipulating both his ratings and those of his players.

    Finally, he pointedly claimed that there will be the same adjustments as there were last year and that this had been the planned all along. he said to look for another significant portion of 3.5 and 4.0 players to get moved up.

    I doubt it.

    But I am using common sense.

    And we are talking about the USTA.

    So who knows.
