Last Year's Tournament Results: Tata Steel 2014

<Karposian> Tat14:BonusRnk(1) + StdMv/Bonus(1)

<juan31> Tat14:StdMvRnk(1t) + StdMv/Bonus(2) + 1stRanker(2t)

<SwitchingQuylthulg> Tat14:StdMvRnk(1t) + 1stRanker(2t)

<Golden Executive> Tat14:StdMvRnk(3) + 1stRanker(1)

<WinKing> Tat14:StdMvRnk(2) + StdMv/Bonus(3) + 1stRanker(3t)

<Penguincw> Tat14:BonusRnk(2)

<chessmoron> Tat14:BonusRnk(3)

<NakoSonorense> Tat14:1stRanker(3t)

<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.

Jan-25-15  chessmoron: <Some Observations>

<SwitchingQuylthulg>'s strategy of predicting numbers less than 10 has done wonders for him and gaining a lot of points.

<OhioChessFan> late <Nostradamus>-like exacts impress the heck out of me. However, <lostemperor>'s Exact in the last round nipped <Elvis> of getting a medal for <Moves+Bonus Ranker>

As for me, just scored one point at the last round, got me passed <lostemperor> for a medal for <Bonus Ranker>.

I'm slightly miffed that <kellmano> forgot his last two rounds. He was doing so well here.

Anyways, thanks for participating.

  OhioChessFan: ** Final Recap **

Much thanks to <chessmoron> for running the show. Thanks to <Penguincw> and <WinKing> for watching the scoring. Impressive effort by <Switcheroo> who won 3 golds. <Penguincw> took the 4th. This struck me as a very hard tournament but a lot of scoring regardless. It was another shutout for The Menkey this round, so <WoolyBully> saved humanity's honor by passing him. Thanks to all. Hope the next tournament is soon.

I'm pretty much the only user that actually cares about this "quadruple crown", and I'm really happy that it was <me> that was able to stop <Switch>. :)

Anyway, thanks to <cm>, <OCF> and <WK> for hosting/making sure this contest ran smoothly. Congrats to the winners, especially <Switch> for once again coming close to a quadruple crown.

Milestone wise, congrats to <OCF> for winning his 20th and 21st bronze medals, and <cm> for a bronze medal, moving him past <WinKing> for most runner-up medals overall with 33.

I also have to congratulate myself for breaking 2 streaks, as it was the first in <years> that I not only won gold, but had a tournament where I came away with more than 1 medal. :)

Kinda surprised that there were only 13 medals given out to 7 medalists, but there was no tie for 3rd place in 1st Ranker this time!

P.S. Next tournament please? :)
