Last Year's Tournament Results: Tata Steel 2014

<juan31> Tat14:StdMvRnk(1t) + StdMv/Bonus(2) + 1stRanker(2t)

<SwitchingQuylthulg> Tat14:StdMvRnk(1t) + 1stRanker(2t)

<Penguincw> Tat14:BonusRnk(2)

<chessmoron> Tat14:BonusRnk(3)

<NakoSonorense> Tat14:1stRanker(3t)

<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.

  OhioChessFan: ** Round 8 Recap **

We are almost through this tournament already. In the Moves Ranker, <WinKing> holds a small lead. 3 people are within 7 points, the magic number. In Bonus Ranker, <GE> has a small lead over <WinKing> In Moves+Bonus Ranker, <WinKing> and <chessmoron> are way ahead of the field. In the #1 Ranker, <lostemperor> leads a really tight contest. <OhioChessFan> is nowhere in sight in any Ranker. Tomorrow is the last round. It starts one hour earlier than all the previous founds, 5 AM chessgames.com time. Don't be late.

<chessmoron> lives on the other side of the world and they don't know how to tell time there. It will be like 3 AM next Tuesday or 2 PM last Thursday or something when the games finish, so we might have to wait a bit for the final standings. Be patient.

  Penguincw: Won first place in <1st Ranker> last tournament, took 8 rounds and 40 games to achieve a score of <one> this tournament. :| (well, it could be worse)

<WinKing> looks like he has a good chance to win a quadruple crown...

With nothing to lose, here are my predictions:

Round 9:

Mamedyarov - Adams 1/2-1/2 20
Caruana - Anand 1/2-1/2 30
Carlsen - Mamedov 1/2-1/2 40
Vachier-Lagrave - So 1/2-1/2 30
Giri - Kramnik 0-1 35

Apr-25-15  chessmoron: <OhioChessFan> I'm back to the states now however I am taking my talents to South Beach tonight. Just kidding. Taking a bit of vacation in Miami so I hope <WinKing> can post final round results for tomorrow.

No problem <chessmoron>. I will post the final results. Might be sometime in the afternoon as I have a few errands to run tomorrow. As far as the medals go I will list them but they will be 'pending' your final ok.
