<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.

  Penguincw: Great contest. Thanks to <chessmoron> and <OhioChessFan> for making it possible.

Congrats to <WinKing> for the triple crown, and <Golden Executive> for taking the 4th gold. Congrats to all the other medalists, and hope to see you next time (which I imagine will be Norway in June).

  OhioChessFan: ** Final Recap **

<WinKing> finished off a smashing success with a Triple Crown, and a bronze to go along with it. <GE> held on for nearly the whole show in the Bonus Ranker. Sadly, <lostemperor> somehow or another missed the final round and a chance to create a great finish. <le> did hold on for an amazing 4 silver medals. <offramp> came through with one silver, and <Switch> quietly had 3 bronze. After his fast start, <chessmoron> did hold on for one bronze. <OhioChessFan> was proud to end up last in only one ranker. <Wannabe> is hoping to bet double or nothing on his current 4 snowball debt to the Chessgames Bookie.

Thanks to <chessmoron> for running the show, thanks to all the mistake catchers and starters, and we hope to see you next time.

  WinKing: Thanks <chessmoron> for all the hard work it took in running this very exciting Tata Steel prediction contest. Thanks also to <OhioChessFan> for hosting & commentating the event.

Congratulations to all of the medal winners! Special grats to <Golden Executive> on picking up a gold in the Bonus Ranker. I saw no way I could get my hands on that one <GE>. You knew how to hold on to it being a veteran HOF'er & I didn't want to risk being greedy. ;) Well played on your part!

Still guaranteed to bewilder people at the chess club or even in a pub.
