The following algorithm is the procedure to rate USCF events. The procedure applies to two separate rating systems: the Quick Chess (QC) system, and the Regular system. The QC system governs events with time controls of G/10 through G/29. Regular events have time controls of G/30 or slower. The formulas apply to each system separately. This algorithm also distinguishes rating calculations between ``full-'' and ``half-'' events.
