Ratings Propogation Question

I am playing a tournament this weekend and there are only 4 propagators playing a layout but we are playing the layout twice. Does this mean ratings will be calculated?

I'm pretty sure you need 10 for data.

But Chuck will know.

You need to have at least 3 in a round to see unofficial ratings. We will try hard to produce ratings in some fashion even with no props at all in the case of a new country or low rated players like Juniors playing a short layout. Five props are needed to use the "standard" official ratings process and that number can be reached in either one round or at least 3 props playing two rounds on the same layout. So in your example, we'll be able to produce official ratings the standard way with 4 props in 2 rounds and you should see unofficial ratings online in each round. Average the unofficial numbers from each round together to get a better idea how the official ratings should come out.
