Some years ago I came up with a new but simple system to calculate the final standings of a tournament including all players. This is how it goes:

For each correct standing you'll get a maximum amount of points. Each prediction deviation from the actual player standing in the tournament, will deduct one point from your total (ABSOLUTE RANKER).

In case of a shared player's standing the average standing counts (both actual and in your predictions).

The SQUARE RANKER, squares your predictions' deviations. Here only medals are awarded if the winner s is not the same person s as in the absolute ranker.

Same goes for the The PAIR BETTING RANKER compare all possible pair outcomes of the tournament participants.

The three best predictions will get Real Virtual Gold Silver and Bronze!

Note: only one set of medals is awarded (in the absolute ranker) unless another ranker produces a different winner.

Special thanks to <YouRang> who made a software to calculate these numbers.

Our new contest manager for game results prediction User: Golden Executive during the tournament also ([1-0], [1/2], [0-1])!

or predict the # of moves in User: ohiochessfan organized by <chessmoron>

Enjoy!

  WinKing: Ok, I see where some members have Kramnik listed in their line-ups. They must be getting that from the <Chessdom> site below.

http://www.chessdom.com/5th-vugar-g...

I think we should stick with the *official site* that has Wojtaszek listed as playing until we hear differently.

2. Navara

5. Mamedjarov
5. Wojtaszek
7. Giri
8. Topalov

Apr-12-18  alfamikewhiskey: They could have said (<http://shamkirchess.com/news/4/159>):

"Apart from Wojtaszek replacing Kramnik, there are no changes."

But no need to keep it simple:

<We should note that, the reigning world champion, the two-time winner of the ShamkirChess Tournament, holding the 1st place on the FIDE rating, Magnus Carlsen (Norway, 2843, the participant of the last Candidates Tournament, Chinese Ding Liren (2778, 8th place on the FIDE rating), the winner of the World Cup, the participant of the Chess Crown Game, Sergey Kariakin (Russia, 2778, 9th place on the FIDE rating), the leader of the Netherlands Chess, Anish Giri (2777, 10th place on the FIDE rating), world champion on the FIDE version, Veselin Topalov (Bulgaria, 2749), Czech David Navara (2745) will participate in the Super Tournament.>

Just me nitpicking ...
