Several competitions can be held per country. Only the best result from this country is included in the Eurotour ranking.
The pre-competition for a European Championship or a World Championship is an exception. Since a greatly expanded field of participants can be expected, these competitions are included in the result list, even if a second competition takes place in the same country.
In order to take into account the sometimes very different number of participants, a bonus (called number of places) will be added from 2023, depending on the number of participants.
This number of places results from the number of pilots ranked behind the participant with a valid rating (greater than 0 points) divided by 10.
An example: The winner in Nancy 2022 would then receive 101.6 points instead of 100 points (because 16 pilots were behind him). The winner of the World Championship pre-competition receives 107.4 points (because 74 pilots were behind him). Of course, every other participant also gets this number of places. Depending on how many pilots are behind him. Up to the penultimate. Up to the penultimate. He only gets 0.1 points as a bonus.
