[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: Movsesian had this nice game against Brunello: Movsesian vs S Brunello, 2015 After 30...Ra7, Black has what looks like an imposing Queenside initiative. [DIAGRAM] 10 moves later, after 40...Kh8, White has all the initiative on the Kingside. [DIAGRAM]

OhioChessFan: Try to follow. The point is that in <your> worldview, there is <nothing> wrong with taking whatever we might want. And the liberals here fancy themselves the enlightened side. Stunning.

OhioChessFan: As I read my last post, I thought back to Kasparov. While the Salov remarks do sound a bit like sour grapes, there surely is some truth to Kasparov's winning games out of the opening. Of course, he won a lot of games in the middle game and end game too, so "almost all" strikes ...

  Penguincw: Great contest as always. Thanks to <cm> and <OCF> for making it possible, and <WK> for helping with the scoring.

As for the actual contest. Thank you, thank you <WinKing> for denying <Switch> another crack at the quadruple crown. Of course, as long as my feat is not repeated, I'll keep bragging about it, just like how Giri has an undefeated record against Carlsen. South Pole > North Pole. :) (but come on, it's like the only achievement I've ever achieve on this site)

Okay, I'll stop. But congrats on hitting the triple crown with a stunning last round performance <WK>. Also congrats to <Switch> and <GE> for each picking up 4 medals.

As for <Karposian>. You were doing well, but came away with just a bronze, just like me. However, at least my bronze wasn't shared. :)

I believe the next tournament is LCC. Until then...

Premium Chessgames Member
  Karposian: <Penguincw: As for <Karposian>. You were doing well, but came away with just a bronze, just like me. However, at least my bronze wasn't shared. :)>

A bronze medal is meagre consolation when I failed at my goal, which was to surpass you in the Hall of Fame.

Next time, <Penguincw>, next time..

Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: < Karposian: Next time, <Penguincw>, next time.. >

Didn't you already said that? :p

< Apr-26-15 Karposian: ... <Penguincw: I also shouldn't forget <Karposian> who won a gold medal to <approach> me on the overall list.>

Thanks, <Penguincw>. Next time it won't be <approach>, but <surpass> :) >

Although you didn't participate at Norway, so that doesn't really count. But you did here. :)

Let's see how the other 2 contest turned out...

Premium Chessgames Member
  Karposian: <Let's see how the other 2 contest turned out...>

Ehh..let's not. It's best to forget about the other two contests :)

Sep-02-15  chessmoron: See you all in December for London Chess Classic.

And of course, congrats to all the winners.

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: ** Final Recap **

With a big final round, <WinKing> ended up with gold in 3 rankers. Due to the Dreaded Curse of the Rabid Penguin, <Switch> held on for only one gold, along with 3 silvers. <GE> snuck by for one gold, along with 2 silvers and a bronze. <chessantosh> held on for one silver. <lostemperor> and <Robin01> had 2 bronze each. In an anticlimatic grudge match, both <Penguincw> and <Karposian> ended up with a bronze each. It's important to note that <Karposian> merely won a <shared> bronze. In a shocking display of honesty, <chessmoron> didn't cheat his way to much, just one bronze. Totally wasting home field advantage, <OhioChessFan> won nothing. Thanks to everyone for playing. Thanks to <chessmoron> for scoring, and to all who helped with checking scores. See you in December.

Premium Chessgames Member
  lostemperor: Thanks <chessmoron> and the sponsor from Graceland! Congratulations to all who beat me :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: Thanks to <chessmoron> and <OhioChessFan>, and congratulations to the winners and medalists!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Robin01: Thanks for running the contest.
Premium Chessgames Member
  wordfunph: <chessmoron> <OCF> thanks!

congratz to all topnotchers!

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <chessmoron/OhioChessFan> Thank you for running the contest, and congratulations to all the winners!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Golden Executive: Thanks <chessmoron> and <OhioChessFan> for running and hosting the contest, also congratulations to all of the medal winners and remarkably to <WinKing> for an impressive final round scoring 21 points and picking 3 gold medals.

See you next time.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WinKing: Thanks to <chessmoron> for running & <OhioChessFan> for hosting this contest.

Congratulations to all of the medal winners! Over half of the contestants walked away with a medal which is nice to see.

  jessicafischerqueen: How's it going, old sock?

I see I missed another famous collaboration with <McLovin>. Looks like a good time was had by all.

Good job, you two.

  OhioChessFan: Best comic strip going.
Premium Chessgames Member
  chancho: This group reminds me a bit of Lakeside:

Five Special - Why Leave Us Alone

I do not remember hearing this back in 1979.

(Maybe I did and I just forgot over time.) :-)

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: I can't be the only person having serious thoughts about bidding farewell to this site. The constant outages is simply unacceptable, and no comment from the site admin makes it worse. This is not okay. When the currrent Team Game gets blown up by an outage, there are going to be a whole lot of unhappy campers.
Premium Chessgames Member
  parisattack: It is certainly very frustrating. I am sure the Admins know such outages are the Black Death for commercial websites. I am abiding for now but there are limits...
Premium Chessgames Member
  chancho: The question is why are these outages becoming more frequent.

In ten years of being around this site,
I don't remember so many happening.

Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: And another outage today. Frustrating.
