[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. Bold strategy

  OhioChessFan: ** Round 8 Recap **

<OhioChessFan> has thrown the red challenge flag at the Adams-Aronian game, insisting that the players missed writing down a move and that the game ended after 28, not 27, moves. When told of the challenge, <lostemperor> commented, "Jealous you are, two s*&#s I give." <wordfunph> and <lostemperor> held on to their leads in 2 Rankers each. <juan31> had the best Bonus Ranker results that round, although he's still looking for his first #juan pick. Here's hoping he takes care of that this round so that the Summary Editor won't have to mention it in the Final Recap.

We have a lot of people in contention for a gold. Can <lostemperor> and <wordfunph> hang on? Will <OhioChessFan> jump off a cliff if the players stop one move short of his prediction again? Will <juan31> <FINALLY!> hit a #1 Ranker? Can someone come from out of the blue and steal away a gold medal? In a few short hours, we'll find the answers to all these questions. And the crowd is on its feet........

Be patient with <chessmoron> who is in a meeting today with John Calipari, who's trying to figure out if he has one year of eligibility remaining.

Congratulations to all of the medal winners & there were many! Super grats to <wordfunph> & <lostemperor> both winning 2 golds. We had a double 'Double Crown' this time around. Well done gentlemen.

  WinKing: Just for the record <SwitchingQuylthulg> won silver <(Lon17:1stRanker(2t)> & not bronze.

  Count Wedgemore: This contest has been great fun, and I look forward to the next one. Hopefully I will win some medals then..

Thanks so much to the organizers of this entertaining competition, <chessmoron> and <OhioChessFan>. Till next time!

  OhioChessFan: ** Final Recap **

Hall of Famers <wordfunph> and <lostemperor> held on to the bitter end and achieved immorality with a Double Gold each. They both took charge and never looked back, unlike the Loser <OhioChessFan>. Congratulations to both of them.

<juan31> hit a spectacular #1 this round, to finally get the last 0 off our scoreboard. He was the only person who predicted an Aronian loss with White, albeit against Carlsen. Congrats to him.

<chessmoron> proved to be a sore loser, as he failed to medal, which is not surprising, but then tried to cheat <Switch> out of a silver, which is shocking. Fortunately, the Department of Ethics Commissioner, <WinKing>, caught him and set things straight.

Here's hoping we'll be back in action at Tata Steel. Thanks to everyone for playing.

  offramp: Many thanks to <OhioChessFan> and to <chessmoron>. It is really great of you to do this!

  Golden Executive: What a disaster of mine, I missed one round and I almost win the Quadruple Clown, dammit!.

Oh well. Thanks to <chessmoron> and <OhioChessFan> for the contest and congratulations to all the winners.

Great tournament for <wordfunph> and <lostemperor> winning a Double Crown, well done !!

See you guys next time!

Thanks to <OhioChessFan> and <chessmoron> for making this contest possible, and <WinKing> for helping out.
