[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 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.

OhioChessFan: I don't believe the story is legit. As <micartouse> mentioned, nobody good enough to get to an endgame against Fahrni would be fooled by this. Or else it was a friend who laughed along with Fahrni and knew he'd won.

OhioChessFan: In an alternate universe, Game 11, Vishy tries a Sicilian and loses. And the imbeciles say "Stupid Vishy, he had a draw in hand with a Berlin and then could play for the win with White! Why did he make such a bad decision?"

OhioChessFan: <2) The info is certainly enough to prejudge, but not always sufficient to judge. It may prevent editors from doing simple corrections (grammatical/orthographical errors, inserting links to player/tournament pages, year when title was awarded, etc.), since they are then held

  OhioChessFan: ** Rounds 7-9 Update **

Hurray, hurray! Everyone has scored. Mankind has shown their collective superiority over The Menkey, as nobody is losing to him. However, there is one person who is only tied with him(no pressure, <chancho>). <GE> and <keypusher> are in the lead with 19 points. The 5 point deduction rule may determine the winner. 3, or fewer, rounds to go.

Nov-20-14  Penguincw: < chessmoron: Woohoo, everyone scored! >

Yeah, but I'm the only user who hasn't scored in Bonus Ranker yet. :(

Nov-20-14  chessmoron: Well <Penguincw>, suck it up. Your total is greater than half of the participants.
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: Woo hoo, tied for first with the Nostradamus of, <Golden Executive>! Er, what's the five point deduction rule?
Nov-21-14  chessmoron: <Game 10 Update> With today's round, 3 people tied in 1st place, <keypusher>, <Golden Executive>, and <SwitchingQuylthulg> with 19 pts.

<Penguincw> has finally scored in Bonus Ranker and hopefully his whining would die down.

Premium Chessgames Member
  bubuli55: Maybe I should have placed a bet for game 12 as well.
Nov-21-14  Penguincw: < <Penguincw> has finally scored in Bonus Ranker and hopefully his whining would die down. >

Sorry, I've been dealing with a lot of problems in my personal life recently. And yes, there's been a <lot> of complaining involved.

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: <Penguin> nothing is ever to be taken seriously in this forum.

<bubulli> yep, I am regretting that. I think there was only one pick for a 12th game.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Golden Executive: <keypusher: Woo hoo, tied for first with the Nostradamus of, <Golden Executive>! Er, what's the five point deduction rule?>

Donīt worry about that, you will not be affected. Itīs a prophecy!

  bubuli55: < Elvis > only one thought this is going the full distance? Let it be. He deserves it :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: Since I predicted a draw in 11 and that that match would end in 11, I am sure to be wrong at least in part. It was stupid for me to predict a win for Carlsen in 10, since according to my own match score prediction it was would not be (and was not) a must win for Anand.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: As we await the final results, a few shoutouts. Thanks, of course, to <chessmoron> who runs the contest in between his gig as a Yao Ming impersonator. Thanks to everyone for playing, especially our first timers. Thanks, sort of, to <JFQ> for browbeating....errrrrr.....kindly suggesting we use the Menkey Picker. The Menkey didn't finish last, which doesn't surprise me. I'm hoping we'll be here for Wijk Aan Zee in January.

The regular prediction contest will suit up for Tata Steel in January. Be sure to look out for that.

Thanks again.

  OhioChessFan: **Final Recap**

A fine WCC victory by Carlsen. An interesting new process by <chessmoron> New people. The Menkey. A 3 way tie for the Gold Medal. Congratulations to <GE> <keyring> and <Switchamacallit> in the inaugural Moves Prediction Contest where all entries had to be received before the start of play. Congrats also to the other medal winners, <WoolyBully> <CallMeMaybe> <chessmaroon> and <Mendrys> I sort of wanted to mock <chancho> for losing to <TheMenkey> but <TheMenkey> in fact did pick a game 12 and therefore lost 5 points. Oh, it's my forum, I'll do what I want:

User: haha

User: chancho

User: lost

User: too

User: themonkey

Thanks for playing everyone.

Nov-23-14  Penguincw: Thanks to <chessmoron> and <OCF> for hosting, and congrats to all the medalists.

By the way, <chessmoron> if you're planning to update the medalists, please see this post first: OhioChessFan chessforum. Thanks.

< The regular prediction contest will suit up for Tata Steel in January. >

I was looking forward to LCC, but I'll stop whining...

P.S. If anyone actually cares, I have updated (or about to) the gold medal leaders for this contest. See User: Gold Medal Leaders for details.

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Thanks <Penguin> and of course you realize I deleted a post each of us made in the middle of the final results once they were fixed. Glad you're around to double check the work.
Nov-23-14  chessmoron: <Penguincw> I have updated the medalists. You will see that after when Tata Steel 2015 winners will be announced.

However the winner's here in WCC14 will not be in the regular <WINNER'S CORNER>. It will have it's separate <WINNER'S CORNER> for the WCC Match.

Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: Thanks everyone, and thanks especially <OCF> and <chessmoron>. I've never done one of these, but I enjoyed it.

Probably like a lot of people, I predicted the overall match correctly (+3-1=7) but I was right for the wrong reasons. Anand was both more aggressive and more blunder-prone than I expected. I wasn't overly impressed with Carlsen's play, Game 2 and some nice defensive efforts aside.

Hoping for Carlsen-Caruana in 2016, and all honor to Vishy for a valiant effort!

  juan31: Chessmoron y OhioChessFan;
