Some years ago I came up with a new but simple system to calculate the finals standings of a tournament. This is how it goes:

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])!

or predict the # of moves in User: ohiochessfan organized by <chessmoron>

Enjoy!

lostemperor: <Penguincw> the next tournament will likely be Tata Steel Chess 2015. There are other top tournaments, like in London, but the chess agenda is busy eg. with the World title match in November in Sochi. Four in Bilbao is just too few players.

(Only one medal, the highest, will come in the Hall of Fame :)

Sep-07-14  Penguincw: I believe you forgot to mention that I won the triple crown... that is the <losing> triple crown, to go along with a <losing> double crown, but of course, only one medal counts (j/k). ;)

Jokes aside, special congratz to <juan31> who is having a career year. He has just achieved HOF status in <chessmoron>'s contest, then <YouRang>'s contest and now <here>. Congratz to the other medalists, and thank you <lostemperor> for hosting.

BTW: Are you hosting Bilbao? I know it's only 4 players (Aronian, Anand, Ponomariov and Vallejo) and 6 rounds (Sep14-Sep20), but if you wish, please let the world know soon, as it's in a week.
