W1 - Win against player #1
L1 - Loss against player #1
D1 - Draw against player #1
F1: Forfeit loss against players #1
other possible signs:
U - unplayed game, this is usually when player withdraw from future rounds, or entering the tournament late, so player gets U for past rounds.
X - forfeit win against someone, most of the times the opponent didn not show up. Since there is no actual game played, the USCF rating will not be affected.
B - full point bye due to uneven number of players
H - half point bye due to pre-requested half point bye (and rules permitting the half point bye for that round)
