Congrats to both players, the result had shown that top 2 players based on the National Rating moves into the Final. This showed that National Rating is far more accurate than elo rating when comes to determine who are the better players.

With these results, it further strengthen the ideas made by cetain people over the past 2 weeks in calling for the used of Nat Rating as a benchmark for selection. I too support the idea that players with National Rating above 1500 only should be chosen.

For information, it was published in Nat Rating List that Nat Rating is 200 to 250 points lesser than elo rating (In general, among active players who can participate "as active" in FIDE event as per dozen of local events in a year). Example, if one player with FIDE elo 1500 should have a comparative rating strength of 1250 to 1300 Nat Rating. Does that mean we should still gives priority to those who possess "weak" elo rating?

Nowadays elo rating starts from 1400, maybe one day is elo 1200 or even 1000. A person who did not have elo Rating because he/she did not take part in enough FIDE-rated events, it does not represent he/she is weaker than those priviledge regulars in FIDE-rated events.
