Note that the differences of the winning predictions of <moronovich> (only 19 points difference from total 98 points possible absolute) and <SwitchingQuylthulg> (only 54 points difference from a 910 points possible squared) with the actual standings were small.
Here the total differences of predictions with the actual standings (absolute) which are relatively not big! Adams and Karjakin clearly underperforming and Ding, Eljanov and Wei outperforming the expectations:

Congrats to the winners, a stellar performance by <moronovich> in particular, winning two golds and gaining 43 bucks in the PBR.
Thanks, <lostemperor>, for once again giving us so much joy with this great contest. See you all at the Candidates!
Oh and by the way, <Penguincw> finished in 20th place out of 22 contestants in all three contests. So, a good tip for anyone who wants to do well in this contest is this:
Copy <Penguincw>'s suggestions, just remember to turn them upside down! You are guaranteed to get a good result.
|Jan-31-16|| ||Penguincw: < Copy <Penguincw>'s suggestions, just remember to turn them upside down! You are guaranteed to get a good result. >|
Not always. I've won a triple crown in this contest before, but also a <losing> triple crown.
You, aside from that practice event last month, always have had a bad performance. Everyone has their bad tournaments. You, have bad prediction contests.
|Jan-31-16|| ||Karposian: <Penguincw: You, aside from that practice event last month, always have had a bad performance.>|
Always? Strange thing to say. I just finished this event at 7th, 6th, and 4th. That's not a bad performance.
I'll tell you about a bad performance: finishing 20th, 20th and 20th.
|Feb-01-16|| ||moronovich: Thanks for the kudos and to <lostemperor> for running the show !
Congratulations to <Switch> too,and see you all at the Candidates which is not that far away.|
|Feb-01-16|| ||moronovich: Candidates will be held in Moscov 10th of March to the 30th.|
3 rounds of play and then 1 free day.
|Feb-01-16|| ||wordfunph: thanks <lostemperor>, congrats to all winners!|
|Feb-01-16|| ||WannaBe: Just lookin' ahead to the Candidates in March, Moscow is 11 hours ahead of Pacific time zone, 8 hours ahead of Eastern time.|
If, the tournament games are to start 1PM Moscow time, it would mean 2AM Pacific, and 5AM Eastern.
|Feb-01-16|| ||alfamikewhiskey: Thanks for hosting, great fun :)
(Boo hoo: Last tournament, London CC - win PAIR BETTING RANKER by $ 25 margin - competition not for real / not Hall Of Fame material. Try to repeat feat, instead: Dead last ...)
Looking forward to the next chance!
