  13. One Question not answered.
    If I play Tournament 1 I played 1 rated opponent. Lost that. But scored 3 points against unrated players.
    Tournament 2 also exactly same – point is there against unrated players but all loss with rated players.
    In tournament 3 I played 6 rated opponents & scored 2.
    Since when my performance counting will start? From tournament 1 or tournament 3?
