<Format>:

[player]-[player] [result] [# of MOVES]

==4 Different Scoring Methods==

Standard Moves Ranker (1st place-Over[3pts], 1st place-Under [7pts], Exact [10pts])

Bonus Ranker (3rd place-Over[1pts],2nd place-Over[2pts],3rd place-Under [5pts], 2nd place-Under [6pts]

Standard Moves/Bonus Ranker [Add all to together]

1st place Ranker [how many 1st place you have in Standard Moves Ranker]

For example:

<Note: Participants 3, 4, and 5 are predicated on nobody scoring an exact as Participant 2 did. If someone hits an exact, the closest score under and over will score the points for second place.>

Actual Game: [player]-[player] 0-1 45

Participant 1: [player]-[player] 1/2 45
Participant 2: [player]-[player] 0-1 45
Participant 3: [player]-[player] 0-1 44
Participant 4: [player]-[player] 0-1 43
Participant 5: [player]-[player] 0-1 46

Participant 1: No points even though 45 is correct. Results must be correct. If Result is wrong and moves # is correct...you get no points whatsoever

Participant 2: 10 pts rewarded for correct Result/moves #

Participant 3: 7 pts rewarded for closest under (1st-Under) to 45 moves

Participant 4: 6 pts rewarded for the 2nd closest under (2nd-Under) to 45 moves.

Participant 5: 3 pts rewarded closest OVER(1st-OVER) to 45 moves.

Again, the description of Participant 3, 4, and 5 are based on there being no exact prediction as made by Participant 2.

<IF> there is an exact or an under closest, the highest scoring over participant will be 2nd over. The second closest over will be 3rd over. The <ONLY> time there will be a first over is if there is no exact or under winner.

  Count Wedgemore: <OCF>, I think your last round strategy was the equivalent of Nepo's 21.Nd7?? in yesterday's game. Not a success.

But hey, I'm not complaining. After studying <WinKing>'s live score, it seems that made me surpass you in both the moves- and the no.1 ranker to grab the silver in both. So thanks, buddy :)

Geez, last place in Moves Ranker. But congrats to the medalists!

Thanks to <chessmoron> for running this, <OhioChessFan> for hosting, and <WinKing> for keeping live scores on his forum.

Hope to see you at the next one, which might be next decade.

  Golden Executive: Many thanks to the crew, <chessmoron>, <ocf> and <WinKing>, for another exciting contest and congratulations to all of the medal winners, especially to my good friend <WinKing> on his amazing two triple crowns in back-to-back tournaments. Way to go <WK>!!!

I finished with 2 silvers so I'm glad with this, I focused in the Bonus Ranker but <Penguincw> took a big advantage after a huge round 8. Kudos to our Canadian friend.

See you folks next time!

  WinKing: Thanks <chessmoron> for running & <OhioChessFan> for hosting this elite tournament.

Congratulations to all of the medal winners! I played rather well in this prediction game & was fortunate to come away with a Triple Crown. A 30pt 4th round got me going. Still, the competition was fierce. <OCF>, <GE>, <juan>, <CW> & <Peng> you were all playing well. Anyhow this time I was the lucky one & came out on top. So many good players here anyone of whom can walk away with the honors. I just gotta say <Penguincw> you protected that Bonus Ranker like a rooster looking over his hen house. Well done walking away with that Gold. You surely earned it. I never even thought a about challenging you on that front. Enough rambling for now. I enjoy all of your company.
