Predict the final standings of tournaments.
Tournament in progress
Candidates 2014 http://www.fide.com/component/conte...
Here an example how to post your predicitons:<
When years ago, at chessgames.com people were predicting the outcome of tournaments at the page, I developed a simple but new system to calculate all standings of the tournament participants into a prediction ranking
Winners TATA Steel Chess 2014
For each correct standing you'll get a maximum amount of points. Each prediction deviation from the actual player standing in the tournament, will deduct one point from your total (ABSOLUTE RANKER).
In case of a shared player's standing the average standing counts (both actual and in your predictions).
The SQUARE RANKER, squares your predictions' deviations. Here only medals are awarded if the winner s is not the same person s as in the absolute ranker.
Same goes for the The PAIR BETTING RANKER compare all possible pair outcomes of the tournament participants. This is invented by YouRang
The three best predictions will get Real Virtual Gold Silver and Bronze!
Note: only one set of medals is awarded (in the absolute ranker) unless another ranker produces a different winner.
Special thanks to <YouRang> who made a software to calculate these numbers. Don't miss his YouRang chessforum game results prediction contest during the tournament also ([1-0], [1/2], [0-1])!
From a medalist there (and counting).
