[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 agree f5 was a bad idea, but I am surprised nobody else has suggested Naka should have walked his King to the Queenside at the same time as Stockfish.

1. Any medals awarded before 2009, are excluded. However, I do have a list below:

<chessmoron> Cor08:BonusRnk(3) + 1stRanker(1)

<NakoSonorense> Lin08:StdMvRnk(2)+ BonusRnk(3) + StdMv/Bonus(1) + 1stRanker(1)//Mtel08:BonusRnk(1) + StdMv/Bonus(1)

<sakii> Lin08:StdMvRnk(1) + StdMv/Bonus(2)+1stRanker(2)

- <iron maiden> won the following medals: <Cor08:StdMvRnk(3) +BonusRnk(1) + StdMv/Bonus(1) + 1stRanker(3t)> However, on <chessmoron>'s profile, it was listed as 2 gold and 2 <silver>.

- I will leave it up to <chessmoron> if he chooses to add those medals.

2. <Corus 2009>, <Linares 2009>, <Tal Memorial 2009>, <Corus 2010>, <Linares 2010>, <Pearl Spring 2010>, <Dortmund 2011> and <Bilbao 2011>, awarded medals the traditional way, giving them to the 3 best <performers> instead of the typical way of awarding the 3 best <performances>.

- I understand that despite <chessmoron> having the corrected medals for Bilbao 2011, I have excluded them. I do have the medals that he listed in this post: OhioChessFan chessforum. If <chessmoron> wishes to add the medals, he may do so.

3. For a previous look at <chessmoron>'s profile, see a link such as

4. Please check your medals. If you think there's an error, let me or <chessmoron> know under this forum, and I'll investigate.

  OhioChessFan: K Rest Day Update K

<Penguincw> is scoring points with <chessmoron> and <OhioChessFan> by finding more gold medals in the closet. Whereas <Karposian> is still staring daggers at <Penguincw> for costing him 5 points. <moulicules> is trying desperately to figure out a plan to score before the tournament is over. <PinnedPiece> is MIA. <WinKing> is trying to send a computer virus to <Penguincw> so as not to lose his King of Statistics crown. Meanwhile, <OhioChessFan> is still kicking himself for missing a first under and at least being tied for first in the Moves #1 Ranker.

Sep-01-14  Penguincw: < Whereas <Karposian> is still staring daggers at <Penguincw> for costing him 5 points. ...>

Damn! I'm stirring up too much suspense outside of the contest, but I guess it's working, as I am in line to win 3 silvers if the tournament ended right now. :)

< < <WinKing> is trying to send a computer virus to <Penguincw> so as not to lose his King of Statistics crown. > >

Don't worry. I'm not going to be replacing <WinKing> anytime soon. For instance, in the 3rd post, I just noticed that I post that <chessmoron> gained 2 golds and 5 bronze while losing one bronze. :| I meant to say <chessmoron> would gain 5 <silver>. Maybe I should not have posted all this...

ADD 91%

<You have a very hard time focusing, and you find it difficult to stay on task without your mind wandering. You probably zone in and out of conversations and tend to miss out on directions because you cannot focus. >

Boy, that sounds great for playing chess.

Next 3:
Paranoia 69%
Manic Depressive 65%
Generalized Anxiety Disorder 57%
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder 26%

Wow, I didn't know I was so well adjusted. Anyone else?

Sep-01-14  Penguincw: Well technically, that gold medal was awarded on an error:

OhioChessFan chessforum

OhioChessFan chessforum

In the first post, it says that <OCF> won Standard Ranker, and <WinKing> placed 2nd, 4 points behind. However, in the Winner's Corner, it says that <both> of them won.

Okay, I should not have done this. :( I should've just told <chessmoron> that he's missing a silver medal that I earned from Tata Steel 2012. :|

  OhioChessFan: You <should> have done it. I know I ruffle a few feathers correcting bios and intros, but them's the breaks. If we can't applaud accuracy on a chess site, where can we?

You're in good company <OCF>!

In the ADD contest I find out that I have beaten you 100-91 because I got:

ADD 100%

GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder) 24%
OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) 23%
Manic Depressive 23%
Paranoia 20%

<You have a very hard time focusing, and you find it difficult to stay on task without your mind wandering. You probably zone in and out of conversations and tend to miss out on directions because you cannot focus. >

<OhioChessFan>: <Boy, that sounds great for playing chess.>

You've got it all wrong. Having ADD is great for us chess players! We just zoom out everything else so we can consentrate on the most important thing, namely chess! (Like when my wife nags me about things like <remember to call..blablabla..> and I just...zoom...out...) LOL

Spot the Typo:

"You are constantly thinking about what others may be saying about you behind your back. You may also feel people have conspiracies against you, or they are out to get you. In crowds you may feel like everybody is watching to closely."

<OhioChessFan> Thanks for the RDE but I hope folks don't take it too seriously. Question 5 has only positive responses possible which simply begs the question. But maybe we're all a little touched. =)

  OhioChessFan: I tried to take it in character as Elvis. The drug situation was hard to work around, but I muddled through and came up with:

Generalized Anxiety Disorder 86%

You can never seem to calm down and always feel anxious for unknown reasons. You tend to not be able to concentrate and have headaches or other anxiety symptoms.

Paranoia 80%
Manic Depressive 76%
OCD 76%
ADD 12%

  Golden Executive: What mental disorder do you have?
Your Result: GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder)

You can never seem to calm down and always feel anxious for unknown reasons. You tend to not be able to concentrate and have headaches or other anxiety symptoms.


Manic Depressive

OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)

8% ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder)


Sep-01-14  Penguincw: < Good work <Penguincw>! >


Here's my take at the test:

< 93% OCD
You have odd obsessions that you cannot seem to control. You may even perform rituals to make you feel better. Counting and continuously obsessing over things happens frequently.

Paranoia 81%

70% GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder)

55% ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder)

31% Manic Depressive >

Pretty actual description of me in a nutshell.

  OhioChessFan: Total scores of participants. Maybe we should award golds in each category :

OCF 308
Karposian 190
Elvis 330
GE 208
Penguin 330

So far, Elvis and Penguin are tied for the lead.
