Rating System

So how do we determine how many points a player earns from a tournament?
It depends on three things:1) The type of tournament.
 2) The number of teams in the tournament.
 3) The place in which the player finished.

Ratings are not affected by an Unrated Open Draw Tournament.

Handicap System

That's great, but how does your rating determine your handicap?

The ratings of each team's players are added together to get the team's rating.
The lower rated team's rating is subtracted from the higher rated team's rating.

If the match is 2 out of 3 games:
