Two players completed the requirements to earn an official FIDE Rating: Raphael Schwartz and Anthony Booth. Their ratings will be published in the June FIDE Ratings List.

Four other players, by playing one or more FIDE-rated players and scoring at least 1/2 point in those games, initiated their FIDE ratings. This means that all they need to do now is play from one to four more games against FIDE-rated players within the next 24 months to earn their official FIDE rating. I have communicated their status to each player in a separate email.
