I've noticed that there is a "rank" column in the results of the tournament (MP). In the first column, you have the player's name, then the percentage, then rank. Under rannk, you have A B C, and there is a number assigned under each letter usually. Can someone explain what this is? Greatly appreciated!!

A, B, and C are stratifications. The players are grouped by how many total master points they have (on BBO I think it is BBO master points) with C being the fewest and A being the most. However, players are eligible for all higher groups. So for example we might have:

C: Under 100 points
B: Under 1000 points
A: Everyone

For each group you belong to, you'll have a number by your name indicating your place out of the people eligible for that group. So a 1 under A means you are first overall, a 1 under B means you are first of the people with under 1000 BBO points. So for example:

A B C
10 4 -

This would mean you are 10th overall, 4th of the people with under 1000 points, and ineligible for C (because you have over 100 points yourself).

For large events they may have separate rankings by section and/or direction.

IIRC, sections are divided by BBO or ACBL point totals, top 1/3 in A, middle 1/3 in B, lower 1/3 in C. Depending on the composition of players your stratification can change each tournament. Not sure about overall rankings if you are reranked among all players for the overall awards.

I think the three sections (based on thirds) are inclusive. A is everyone, B is bottom 2/3 and C is bottom 1/3 based on points (assuming they are ACBL online points for the ACBL - whatever their status is), or BBO points for BBO tournament sections. Masterpoints are awarded based on section and overall ranking is something else. Not sure on how it works between MPs and IMPs but overall IMP rankings are all compared across the whole tournament - so its very dependent on the section etc
