Tournaments

An ongoing tournament which does not have an element of elimination and can go on indefinitely. 

Players are listed as if on the rungs of a ladder and the goal is to reach the highest rung of the ladder. Players challenge other players above them on the ladder and receive a rating based on their performance versus other players.

The rating system takes into consideration factors such as the rating difference between opponents, and the number of rated matches previously played by each player.
