Notes:

12 games remaining.

If Potaissa Turda loses their final game and The Gambiteers Guild wins both remaining games, The Gambiteers Guild would take 2nd place and qualify to group B, unless ...

Le Courrier des Echecs could take 2nd place and the "B" qualification if they score well enough in their final 5 games.

All the remaining games involving Chess Mail Chigorin, Chess Mail Bears and Springer St. Toenis appear critical as 10th place goes to Group "D" unless they have the best overall score of all the 10th place teams in the six current group C's.

Notes:

9 games remaining.

All promotions/relegations have been determined in this group except for Randaberg Vikings and Schachfreunde St. Wendel. The 2nd place team will advance to group "B" and the 3rd place team will remain in group "C" next season. Only those games involving these two teams are critical. If Schachfreunde St. Wendel wins both remaining games (24 points) and Randaberg Vikings only scores 24 points, then Schachfreunde St. Wendel would take 2nd place on tie-break and be promoted to "B". There is one game remaining between these two teams. Schachfreunde St. Wendel must win this game to have a chance at 2nd place.

Notes:

11 games remaining.

The promotions to group "B" next season are determined: Grone Stralsund and Zugzwang Bocholt 5.

Four teams have clinched remaining in "C".

Of the 11 remaining games, only the one game between CC Cyber Super Gambits and Rochade 5171 - Interstern is not important. At least some of the other 10 games must be finished or adjudicated.

  Caissa and Friends 14.5  
D Omsk 13  
Notes:

5 games remaining.

The race between The Norsemen and Zitadelle Spandau B will be determined by the one remaining game. If the game is a draw both teams will finish with 23 points and the tie-break will favor The Norsemen with +15 tie-break points over Zitadelle Spandau B with only +14 tie-break points.

The other games are unimportant for promotion/relegation purposes.

Caissa and Friends still has a chance to remain in group "C" if they have the best 10th place score among the six "C" groups. However, Springer St. Toenis in group C-1 already has 14.5 points with 5 remaining games, so any additional score there will relegate Caissa and Friends to group "D" next season.

Notes:

8 games remaining.

No teams can overcome Jested Liberec or Magnitchess for the top two positions which promote to group "B" next season.

The only thing in question are the five (5) games involving the last two places Dutchess and I Disuniti Chess Club. There is a chance one of these two teams could finish with the best 10th place finish in the six group "C" teams. The other three games in this group not involving these two teams are unimportant in determining promotion/relegation.

D There's a Weasel… 5 1
Notes:

4 games remaining.

Only one game of the 4 remaining has any meaning for promotion/relegation. If Zugzwang Bocholt 2 wins their final game to tie the score with Masters of the IECG at 24.5, then Zugzwang Bocholt 2 will take 2nd place and promote to "B". They would have 15 tie-break points to only 12 for Masters of the IECG. If they don't win that final game then Masters of the IECG finishes in 2nd and promotes to "B". The other team remains in group "C" next season.

The other three unfinished games are unimportant in determining promotion/relegation.

Tie-break between Gambit Krosno II and Chessknights Tango was very close. The first tie-break according to FAQ 14 gives each team +13 points. The second tie-break is how the teams did against each other. Chessknights Tango won this tie-break 3-1.

Notes:

All promotions determined except two teams, one goes to "B" and one goes to "C".
All four remaining games involve CS Energy PCC Sterom 1 Campina and Rey Gris and are critical.

If Rey Gris manages to tie the final score at 15.5 or 16, they will have +10 tie-break points and advance to group "B". The best tie-break points CS Energy PCC Sterom 1 Campina could accumulate are +9, so they must come in clear 1st place to advance. The team that doesn't advance to "B" will go to group "C".
