Golden Executive
Member since Oct-13-09
Hi, I'm Alfredo Vargas, 55 years old. I graduated as a CPA in 1984 at Universidad La Salle in Mexico City https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unive...

In 2010 I was a very active member of the cg.com team in the game Chessgames Challenge: The World vs N Pogonina, 2010 .The legend of the <Spacebar Masters> started there (see description below).

In 2011 User: chessmoron invited me to participate in CG.com Masters - Machines Invitational (2011) tournament as Golden Executive / Houdini

Since July 2015 I am the Game Prediction Contest Manager, and this forum is currently the place to participate in. Thanks to User: YouRang

In January 2016, User: Annie K. and I shared the Caissar's Award for the 2015 Most Constructive Member. The Caissars chessforum (kibitz #1914)

<Brief History of the Game Prediction Contest>:

This contest was created and originally hosted by <cu8sfan>, but he discontinued hosting the contests due to time constraints at work. <YouRang> took it over, created the 1-2-3 Ranker, the Betting Ranker and developed the CONMAN software (short for Contest Manager) and hosted the contest for almost 10 years, but some personal changes have led him to stop running it.

<Since the rules and details of the contest were sharply defined by <YouRang>, I decided not to make any changes:>

<Objective>:

Have fun predicting the outcome of each game in each round, and seeing how well your predictions compare to those entered by other contestants. You win by having the best overall prediction performance.

As with the Olympics, the top 3 placeholders will be honored with 'medals' (gold, silver and bronze), and the gold medal winners will be inducted into the HALL OF FAME (see below).

There will be a few different ways to determine a winner, as discussed under "Scoring Methods", below.

<Rules>:

1. Enter your game predictions for a round BEFORE any games for that round begin. It is okay to enter predictions long in advance (e.g. you could predict all rounds at the start if you want).

2. Make sure that when you enter game predictions for a round, that you include ALL games in that round, within a single post. If you miss one game, all of your predictions for that round will be ignored.

3. You may change your predictions for a round by re-submitting ALL of your predictions for that round (you must re-submit predictions for all games in the round, even if you changed a prediction for only one game).

4. Keep in mind that I'm using software to process all of the prediction posts. If you enter a post that 'looks' like game predictions, it will be counted as game predictions. If your prediction post contains typos, they become subject to my interpretation of your intent. But if the intent strikes me as being ambiguous, then I must reject your predictions for that game, and thus for that whole round -- so please be careful.

5. A post containing predictions should have one line for each game prediction. The line should be of the form:

    [whiteplayer] - [blackplayer] [outcome]

Here are some examples:
    Anand - Topalov 1/2
    Leko - Kramnik 1-0
    Adams - Polgar 0-1

DON'T forget the hyphen between the player's names. (The software can usually figure out what you mean if you deviate a *little* from this form...)

6. Please do not enter predictions that mimic the robots (e.g. pick all draws in every round like DRAWER). I don't award medals to people who make such predictions since it would be unfair to the robots who don't earn medals. (BTW, it is okay to mimic the MONKEY robot.)

<Scoring Methods>

There are 3 different scoring methods, which means that there are actually 3 contests in one. Consequently, we could have as many as 3 different winners (or perhaps one triple-crown winner!)

1. Standard Ranker (created by <cu8sfan>)

The winner is simply the person who finishes with the most correct predictions.

2. 1-2-3 Ranker (created by <YouRang>)

This contest makes it is more rewarding to correctly predict the outcome of a decisive game than a drawn game. You earn 1 point for correctly predicting a draw, but 2 points for correctly predicting a white win, and 3 points for correctly predicting a black win. The winner is the person ending up with the most points.

3. Betting Ranker (created by <YouRang>)

This contest gives greater rewards to those who have a knack for predicting upsets (i.e. games that most other people thought would have a different outcome). Each game prediction is treated as a $1 wager. All of the money wagered on that game is divided up equally to those who correctly predicted its outcome. If you're the only one who got it right, you've hit the jackpot! The winner is the person ending up with the most $$$.

<Notes on Scoring Methods>

For the "Standard Ranker" and "1-2-3 Ranker" reports, you will notice that there are four "robot" contestants who serve as comparison benchmarks. These are as follows:

1. WHITER = Always predicts white to win.
2. BLACKER = Always predicts black to win.
3. DRAWER = Predicts every game to be drawn.
4. MONKEY = Simulates a monkey that just picks white, black or draw at random, with equal chances for each outcome.

<Miscellaneous comments>:

• I am not always online when the games for a round begin. It would be helpful to me if someone who IS online when the games begin to post a message in this forum simply stating that the games have begun. This lets me know the cut-off point for accepting new predictions for that round.

• TIP: It's easy to get busy and neglect to enter your predictions on time. If so, you'll miss a round, which greatly diminishes your chances of winning. Avoid this by entering a few rounds of predictions in advance. You can always revise them later if you like.

*<SpaceBar Master>

1)As a dismissive term: arybkanator, afritzionado, ahoudiniado etc, one who blindly follows top computer lines; therefore, not worthy (indignus) to play against one of the best female chess players in the world, with current rating over 2500 and IQ of her husband 150.

2)As a badge of pride: the specific, mostly positive emotion that is product of independent self-reflection; some social psychologists identify it as a proof of a very high level of play of the World Team.**<In its strict signification, denotes an advanced chess player guiding and interpreting computer analysis in a skillfully masterful manner.>

It also happened to me at the bookie. About 3 minutes before closing time, CG went down. Ouch!

<♗> HALL OF FAME INDUCTION CEREMONY <♗>

Please join me in congratulating the gold medal winners of the Sinquefield Cup 2017 Game Prediction Contest. Their performances shall be memorialized forever (or for an indefinite period of time, whichever comes first) in the <Hall of Fame> (see my profile above).

We hereby confer upon the following, with all due pomp, the title "Hall of Famer" (or HOFer for short):

== INDUCTEES

♔11 ♕9 ♖13 <chessmoron>[*] Sin17:StdRnk(1t)+123Rnk(1t) / Sin16:StdRnk(2t)+123Rnk(2t) / Bil16:BetRnk(2)+StdRnk(3t)+123Rnk(3t) / Wij16:StdRnk(3t) / Lon15:123Rnk(3t) / Gas15:StdRnk(1t)+123Rnk(1) / Nor14:123Rnk(1t)+StdRnk(2) / Wij14:StdRnk(1t) / Dor13:StdRnk(1t)+123Rnk(2t) / WCC13:StdRnk(3t) / Bil12:StdRnk(1t)+123Rnk(1t) / Bie12:StdRnk(3)+123Rnk(3) / Bil11:StdRnk(2)+123Rnk(3) / Baz11:StdRnk(3t) / Dor10:StdRnk(1t) / Wij10:StdRnk(2)+123Rnk(3t) / Tal09:StdRnk(3t)+123Rnk(3t) / Wij09:StdRnk(1t)+123Rnk(2t) / Lin08:BetRnk(3) / Wij08:StdRnk(2t)

♔ ♕5 ♖4 <FSR> Sin17:StdRnk(1t)+123Rnk(3t) / Bil16:StdRnk(3t) / Nor16:StdRnk(2)+123Rnk(2t) / Lon15:123Rnk(2)+BetRnk(3) / Bil15:StdRnk(2)+123Rnk(2t)+BetRnk(3)

[*] Was already in the Hall of Fame

Congratulations to HOFer <chessmoron> who amazingly sprinted in the last rounds to take not one, but two golds in both Standard and 1-2-3 Ranker, to push his career total to 11 gold medals, which moved him to the 3rd spot in the Hall of Fame standings.

The Hall welcomes <FSR> who lingered among the leaders for most of the tournament and became the newest inductee by winning not only the required gold medal, but also a bronze to bring his total medal count to 10.

Congratulations also to HOFer <alfamikewhiskey> who is well known for his gold or nothing betting style, so added one more gold to his trophy case, giving him a career total of 7 (golds, of course).

The Hall also congratulates HOFer <Robin01> who in round 4 took the sole lead of the Betting Ranker and from there, she sailed to a gold medal. Now, she has a total of 16 medals, including 2 golds.

Honorable mentions:

- The Hall confers honorable mentions to HOFer <Legend> who leaped from obscurity to a silver medal in the volatile Betting Ranker by dramatically winning a jackpot in the final round!.

- Finally, the Hall recognizes the fine performances of HOFers <Golden Executive>, <WannaBe> and <wordfunph> who came away from Saint Louis with bronze medals.

This concludes the Prediction Contest for Sinquefield Cup 2017. Thanks to all for playing!

Hope to see you for the next contest: London Chess Classic 2017 (if another very important tournament takes place before, I will do it).

Stay tuned!
