<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 9 Recap **

The crowd roared its approval as the last 0's on the scoreboard faded to oblivion. All 4 Rankers are tightly contested, although not by <chessmoron> or <OhioChessFan>. <WinKing> leads 2 Rankers, while <Switch> <amw> and <juan> lead 1 each. <chessmoron> is currently in negotiations with Hillary Clinton for a speaking spot at the convention for the winner of the Bonus+Moves Ranker.

It's hard to believe we're at the last round already. One round to go for fame and fortune. Can the current leaders hang on? Can someone step up with a big final round to crash the party?* Why exactly did Hillary name a pro wrestler her Vice Presidential running mate? Stay tuned for the answers. The crowd is standing and applauding the contestants as we head to the final round........

  OhioChessFan: ** Final Recap **

We ended up with a divided leaderboard as nobody was able to take control in the final round. <WinKing> took home 2 golds, along with a silver. <Switch> had 1 gold and 3 silvers. <amw> held on for one gold and a bronze. <juan31> had the final gold along with a bronze. <chessmoron> finally showed up in the last round to earn 2 bronze, <lostemperor> quietly had 2 bronze and <Penguincw> had 1 bronze. <OhioChessFan> had nothing, and wasn't even close.

Thanks to everyone for playing. Thanks to <chessmoron> for running the show, <Switch> and <Win> and <tpstar> for being the starters, and congratulations to the winners.

  WinKing: Thanks to <chessmoron> for running the contest & to <OhoChessFan> for hosting this contest!

Congratulations to all of those winning medals! It is always fun, for me, when I can go toe to toe with a rival like <Switch>. It is no secret that he is probably the most dangerous & formidable of all of the contestants here. Kudos <Switch> on picking up your record 38th overall gold medal(all prediction contests). I would also like to commend <juan31> & <alfamikewhiskey> for standing their ground & each of them taking home a gold medal for their trophy case. Well done guys!

Looking forward to the next contest. Are you planning on doing the 'Grand Chess Tour' Sinquefield Cup 2016 event <chessmoron>? If you feel like taking a break & just playing in a contest for a change I would be happy to run the Sinquefield Cup event. Just let me know. (Sinquefield runs from August 5th thru August 14th - 9 rounds - ten players)

I don't know if that(quad-silver) has ever been done <Switch>? I think I have gone the triple-silver route a few times myself. We would have to check with the in-house guru <Penguincw> to see for sure if it has ever been done.
