<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: Strange that Plaskett played Kd3 and then resigned. I suspect time trouble was involved. Maybe he was hoping for perpetual ideas with 38...Rd1 39. Re7+ Kxe7 40. Qe3+ Kd8 41. Qg5+ but then Black has a nice King retreat back at d7.

  OhioChessFan: ** Final Recap **

An exciting final round capped off a great tournament. All the Rankers were won by current Hall of Fame members. <Karposian> staggered across the finish line to hold on to the Gold in Moves Ranker, after his amazing 3 perfects/30 point round. <WinKing> made a late surge to pass <lostemperor> for the Bonus Ranker gold, and took home the Moves+Bonus Ranker gold as well. <Penguincw> took home the #1 Ranker gold. <Karposian> added a bronze to his gold. <WinKing> had a bronze to go with his 2 golds. <Penguincw> had a silver to go with his gold. Other medalists were <Switch> with three silvers after a furious last round rally, <lostemperor> with a silver and bronze, and <OhioChessFan> with a bronze.

Many thanks to <chessmoron> for running the show, <GE> for stepping in with scoring, <Switch> for watching the starting line, and <WinKing> for keeping an eye on scoring issues. There are a number of strong tournaments coming up, so I hope we can prevail upon <cm> to run some/all of them. Thanks for playing!

  WinKing: Thanks <chessmoron> for another heart pounding contest! Thanks <OCF> for hosting & providing commentary!

Congratulations to all of the medal winners! Special grats to <Karposian> & <Penguincw> on each grabbing a gold. Not sure who won the other two...some schmuck. ;)

What I'd really like to know is how did <Karposian> get ahead of <Penguincw> in the ♔ <WINNER'S CORNER> ♔? Oops...did I say that?

Well, that schmuck is pretty good :) Congrats on your two golds, <WinKing>. You scored 117 pts in total, a great result.

<What I'd really like to know is how did <Karposian> get ahead of <Penguincw> in the ♔ <WINNER'S CORNER> ♔? Oops...did I say that?>

Heh, heh. I'm sure that <Penguincw> will have noticed it!

Thanks <OCF> (brilliant recaps as usual) and <chessmoron> for another great contest. My only regret is that once again I failed to surpass my no.1 "frenemy", <the Pengster>, in the HOF.

Next time...next time...

  Penguincw: Thank you <chessmoron> for running this contest. Thanks to <OhioChessFan> for allowing your forum to be the host for this contest, and for the colour commentary. Also thanks to <Golden Executive> for helping out despite having to run another contest.

Congrats to <WinKing> for winning his 4th double crown (only <cm>, 5, has more). However, no one has more than his <7> multi-crowns. Also congrats to <Penguincw> (that would be me) and <Karposian> for both winning a gold medal, both using 2 different methods to victory: one had a <huge> round, the other put on their rally cap.

Congrats to the other medalists too.

<chessmoron>, is the Gashimov Memorial next?

  Big Pawn: <optimal play> shared this link in my forum: http://spectator.org/articles/35455...

Really good reading there. The author talks about the historicity of Muhammad and how it's being scrutinized by modern scholars, even bringing into question whether Muhammad really existed.

In my opinion, a great article. Perhaps you can check it out when you have the chance. It's a long article so you'll need to have a bit of time.
