<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 5 Recap **

<Switch> and <GE> continue their leads in 3 and 1 ranker respectively. But the crowd is murmuring about the hard-charging <OhioChessFan> who is now on the medal stand in all 4 rankers, including a tie for the lead in #1 ranker! Talk of a quadruple crown is obviously premature, but the leaders are definitely hearing footsteps.

<sea otter> is back from a rumored global warming symposium, after being told "Hey, rising sea levels ought to be right up your alley!" He and his fans were stunned when his prediction of a 47 move draw in the 51 move Harikrishna-Mamedyarov battle still wasn't good enough to earn a #1. Not to worry, too much, as there are still 4 rounds to go.

<Switch> and <GE> begged the Gashimov tournament directors for a timeout to catch their breath and consider their options to slow down the <OCF> express. <OCF> hated to see his momentum broken, but in an honorable display of sportsmanship, agreed with the administrators to have a rest day tomorrow.

Will <Switch> hack Mamedyarov's computer and mess with his opening preparation? Will <GE> invent an even more obscure scoring system? After years of disappointment, will <OCF> finally have a strong finish? What exactly does <sea otter> have to do to get rid of the last two 0's on the scoreboard? Some of the contestants will relax tomorrow, some will be working feverishly, but all will be ready Thursday to resume their quest for cyber fame and fortune.
