My assumption has been that the 2 matches from last year don't count and he really starts this year with a new self-rating, i.e. no dynamic rating. But I could be wrong.
A similar question is, once you have a YE C rating, do you start the next year with that rating alone or does your history (past 3 dynamic ratings) carry over for averaging purposes to calculate your new rating? I've also assumed the history doesn't carry over but could be wrong here too.
Answers or educated guesses welcome.
I think if you have a C rating, the dynamic ratings from the previous year's matches do play into the current year just as if it were one long continuous string of matches, but I don't know that for sure. Even if that's true, though, it still may not be in the other case where an M rating superceded the adult play.
