 EVIZ Rating 

   Currently there is no National Chess Rating list in Malaysia and this is affecting  chess organisers, coaches and players. For tournaments that are not FIDE rated, chess organisers are unable to rank players in an unbiased manner. For players,  there is no yardstick to gauge their progress. 

    As such, the Cheras Chess Academy and a number of other local organisers will be using the new EVIZ Rating system to rate most of our rapid tournaments.
