The numbers game

The Chicago Chess Blog, having learned of it elsewhere, reports new functionality at USCF's website.  If you've ever wondered exactly where you or anyone else falls in the sea of active players, you can now find out.  Most of us will have quite some work to do to dislodge Hikaru Nakamura and Gata Kamsky from the #1 and #2 spots, but in any case, a player's ordinal ranking and percentile is now available (including separately among juniors, for younger folks). For ordinal ranking, "(T)" presumably indicates Tie, not Tyrannosaurus (that would be from the dinosaur rating website).

Look yourself up and knock yourself out:

USCF has apparently now added (unless I missed it earlier) State Ranking.

Swell, another top 200 list I'll probably never crack....

Yeah, the state ranking has been around for a long time, but now it is more accessible on the main page.
