Here are the facts 3.0 male playing in 2013 6.5 combo State Championships 5-0 record with 3 different partners, 2 non-competitive matches Played in 6.5 combo as 3.0 in 2010, 2011, 2012, advancing to State Championships each year and Sectionals in 2012 Played in mixed 6.0 in 2012, with a league record of 5-0, advanced to State Played in mixed 6.0 in 2013 with record of 7-2 Played in no other leagues. Has 3.0M (mixed exclusive) rating, and is required to self rate to play in any other leagues. Opinion After playing against him at the State Championships, I commented to my partner that the reason we got beat was that this guy was twice as good as me. To me, he was BETTER than his 3.5 partner. So when I got home I decided to look him up. I feel that this guy is playing with a rating below his skill level and should be stopped. He is signed up for 2 early start leagues in 2014 (you guessed it, mixed only, 6.0 and 7.0). I have no doubt if unchecked, he will play 6.5 combo again in 2014, and beat up on more beginners at State. Since his only computer generated rating is M, he is susceptible to grievance if he plays anything else. Question is, should I file? On a side note, individual Sections can opt in to include tri and combo in a players NTRP. What would be the downside to making it mandatory nationwide? Right now, it is too easy to use combo and tri (and to a lesser degree mixed) as a farm league for underrated self rate players.
