|Jan-28-18|| ||WannaBe: Thank you <lostemperor> for another contest! Really strange <penguincw> did so bad in 2 categories and won the Betting category by a wide margin. =)|
|Jan-28-18|| ||moronovich: Thanks a lot for hosting <lostemperor>!|
And congratulations to all winners.
The Candidates next time !?....
|Jan-28-18|| ||lostemperor: Congratulations to Carlsen and Giri for winning the exciting monster tournament of Tata Steel! |
Kudos to our medal winners: <offramp>♔♕, <paavoh>♔, <Penguincw>♔, <alfamikewhiskey>♕♕, <OhioChessFan>♕♖, <FSR>♕!
|Jan-28-18|| ||OhioChessFan: Cigar, close, but no.
Running this contest, many thanks for you.
|Jan-28-18|| ||lostemperor: <Penguincw> reversed predictions held till the end with three JACKPOTS and Semi-jackpots (and this tactic was his second time to get the Gold)!! Maybe something to follow for dare devils among us or those who want to take a bet! <;)|
|Jan-28-18|| ||Penguincw: Hehe, the reversed predictions work. Don't know if I'm going to deploy it again next time. I don't always deploy it, so is that implying that it doesn't always work?|
Regardless, congrats to <offramp> for winning another gold and congrats to the other medalists.
Thanks to <lostemperor> for doing a great job of hosting. What would be the next contest? The Candidates I'm guessing?
< WannaBe: Really strange <penguincw> did so bad in 2 categories and won the Betting category by a wide margin. =) >
Yeah, I noticed that too. I almost regret posting those predictions, but it worked out in the end. I had a feeling I'd be near the cellar in 2 of the ranks, but geez, has a user ever been <that> far back in last place?
A little while ago, <Golden Executive> posted instructions on how to calculate the standings for this contest (WinKing chessforum (kibitz #2522)). I haven't really reviewed it since (and this was almost 3 years ago), but doing some quick math of assuming my "real" score of my would be non-reversed predictions would be the max. score minus by actual score, I would've won Absolute Ranker by 10 points.
(I may calculate it properly some other time, if it results in a change)
|Jan-28-18|| ||WinKing: Thanks <lostemperor> for running & hosting a lively event! 36 of the 91
games in this contest were decisive(40%). That's not too bad for a Super Tournament.|
Congratulations to all of the medal winners! Kudos to <Penguincw>, <paavoh> & <offramp> on picking up gold in this contest. I'd continue using your 'reversed predictions' <Penguincw>. "If it ain't broke don't fix it" as the saying goes. ;)
|Jan-28-18|| ||Count Wedgemore: Thank you to <lostemperor> for organizing this competition. Great fun!|
|Jan-29-18|| ||offramp: That was bloody close! Many thanks to User: lostemperor for making this difficult game possible.|
I think it'll be remembered for <PenguinCW>'s $ Earnings. At one point he had over $100 and was about $80 in the lead. Sauve qui peut!!
|Jan-29-18|| ||paavoh: Congratulations to all medalists and participants - this was great fun and a tight race to the end!|
Happy to score one medal, be in the running in the Absolute Ranker, and surprisingly, in the positive in Pair Betting!
