<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: **Very Important Announcement**

The magic of blue links leads to some great profiles. I hereby inaugarate the initial class into the Chessgames.com Profile Hall of Fame with a few words of my own about the nominees:

User: Jessica

Lovely Jess is apparently in great torments.

User: THE

I don't know, but I am glad for the sake of blue link magic you exist.

User: good

Admitting a problem is the first step to solving it.

User: ing

Apparently he's the only member.

Further inductees must pass a rigorous qualification test, which consists of any kibitzer posting a blue link on this page, with optional comments.

Oh <Ohio> I forgot to ask you about this. I discussed it years ago, but I can't remember with whom.

"Human Spatial Templates"

I noticed this some time ago, and it intrigued me.

Do you have a "geographical spatial map" in your head that gives positions to the varous fora?

I do. It's very specific and I have no idea why the fora occupy the positions that they do. But the print in my brain is very strong, and I actually think about this map when I go to post in the fora.

Travis' forum is right next door to me, one block due West. Chancho's forum is also right next door to me, one block due East. Your forum is two blocks away, Southwest from my place.

Howard's forum is five blocks away, North-Northeast (yes, that's how specific the map is).

The Biographer's Bistro is about six blocks Northeast.

Dom's forum is about eight blocks away, South-Southeast.

Technical Draw's forum is about ten blocks due West- and his is the last forum before "The Unknown." There are no fora west of Technical Draw's house.

Do you have a map?

Do you think I should go to a User: doctor?

  OhioChessFan: I don't have a map. I have zero visualization skills, which is a bit of a problem in chess. I really can't even picture an empty chess board. Maybe if I worked really, really hard at it, although I've devoted most of my life to getting by on natural talent in whatever areas I decide to engage.

I have read a little about it. It appears to be the method of choice for the memory champions of the world. I read a really interesting story in that regard some years back, where they create a sort of virtual house with various objects in various rooms, or sitting upon the different pieces of furniture, etc.

That's interesting. I imagined furniture in only one of the fora- in <Dom's>. I imagined that he had a wooden mantle filled with Golden Caissar Awards, and a marble floor.

Either that, or I had been imagining his real house.

Thanks to your tip, I shall now place imaginary furniture and people in all of the fora.

I can see you now sitting in a Barcalounger snuggling a Jack Russell after a hard day's work.
