An early preview of 2017 40 & over 4.5 Nationals - Current top teams in the country

I've written an early preview of Nationals for the 40 & over 3.5 and 4.0 levels, now it is time for the 4.5+ men and women.

As usual, these previews use my Estimated Dynamic NTRP Ratings and reflect the current ratings I have for the top-8 players on each roster.  What is shown is the average of those top-8.

Here are the top-30 (and ties) men's teams.

Every single one of the teams has an average of 4.51 or higher.  Now, this makes a little sense as these are plus-league teams so they are likely carrying three 5.0s will pulls the averages up.




And here are the women.
