McMahon Style

Half-point for every 100 rating points above 1000 rating, e.g. 1500 rating = 5 half-points = 2.5 points to start

McMahon points only go up to a maximum of 5 points (10 half-points max), e.g. a player rated 2000 starts with 5 points, but players rated 2100, 2200, or more also start with 5 points.
