Golden Executive
Member since Oct-13-09
Hi, I'm Alfredo Vargas, 59 years old. I graduated as a CPA in 1984 at Universidad La Salle in Mexico City https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unive...

In 2010 I was a very active member of the cg.com team in the game Chessgames Challenge: The World vs N Pogonina, 2010 .The legend of the <Spacebar Masters> started there (see description below).

In 2011 User: chessmoron invited me to participate in CG.com Masters - Machines Invitational (2011) tournament as Golden Executive / Houdini

Since July 2015 I am the Game Prediction Contest Manager, and this forum is currently the place to participate in. Thanks to User: YouRang

In January 2016, User: Annie K. and I shared the Caissar's Award for the 2015 Most Constructive Member. The Caissars chessforum (kibitz #1914)

<Brief History of the Game Prediction Contest>:

This contest was created and originally hosted by <cu8sfan>, but he discontinued hosting the contests due to time constraints at work. <YouRang> took it over, created the 1-2-3 Ranker, the Betting Ranker and developed the CONMAN software (short for Contest Manager) and hosted the contest for almost 10 years, but some personal changes have led him to stop running it.

<Objective>:

Have fun predicting the outcome of each game in each round, and seeing how well your predictions compare to those entered by other contestants. You win by having the best overall prediction performance.

As with the Olympics, the top 3 placeholders will be honored with 'medals' (gold, silver and bronze), and the gold medal winners will be inducted into the HALL OF FAME (see below).

There will be a few different ways to determine a winner, as discussed under "Scoring Methods", below.

? <Rules>:

1. Enter your game predictions for a round BEFORE any games for that round begin. It is okay to enter predictions long in advance (e.g. you could predict all rounds at the start if you want).

2. Make sure that when you enter game predictions for a round, that you include ALL games in that round, within a single post. If you miss one game, all of your predictions for that round will be ignored.

3. You may change your predictions for a round by re-submitting ALL of your predictions for that round (you must re-submit predictions for all games in the round, even if you changed a prediction for only one game).

4. Keep in mind that I'm using software to process all of the prediction posts. If you enter a post that 'looks' like game predictions, it will be counted as game predictions. If your prediction post contains typos, they become subject to my interpretation of your intent. But if the intent strikes me as being ambiguous, then I must reject your predictions for that game, and thus for that whole round -- so please be careful.

5. A post containing predictions should have one line for each game prediction. The line should be of the form:

? ? [whiteplayer] - [blackplayer] [outcome]

Here are some examples:
? ? Anand - Topalov 1/2
? ? Leko - Kramnik 1-0
? ? Adams - Polgar 0-1

DON'T forget the hyphen between the player's names. (The software can usually figure out what you mean if you deviate a *little* from this form...)

Old 6. Please do not enter predictions that mimic the robots (e.g. pick all draws in every round like DRAWER). I don't award medals to people who make such predictions since it would be unfair to the robots who don't earn medals (BTW, it is okay to mimic the MONKEY robot). This rule was in force until the GPC for The Gashimov Memorial 2018 tournament.

New 6. Starting with the GPC for Norway Chess 2018 Tournament, in order to be eligible for earning medals, a limit of 90% of draw predictions will be in effect. The rounding rule is half to odd.

For instance if a tournament has 45 games, then 45 x 90% = 40.5 is rounded to 41. So, the limit of draw predictions for that tournament would be 41.

The robots don't earn medals.

<Scoring Methods>

There are 3 different scoring methods, which means that there are actually 3 contests in one. Consequently, we could have as many as 3 different winners (or perhaps one triple-crown winner!)

1. Standard Ranker (created by <cu8sfan>)

The winner is simply the person who finishes with the most correct predictions.

2. 1-2-3 Ranker (created by <YouRang>)

This contest makes it is more rewarding to correctly predict the outcome of a decisive game than a drawn game. You earn 1 point for correctly predicting a draw, but 2 points for correctly predicting a white win, and 3 points for correctly predicting a black win. The winner is the person ending up with the most points.

3. Betting Ranker (created by <YouRang>)

This contest gives greater rewards to those who have a knack for predicting upsets (i.e. games that most other people thought would have a different outcome). Each game prediction is treated as a $1 wager. All of the money wagered on that game is divided up equally to those who correctly predicted its outcome. If you're the only one who got it right, you've hit the jackpot! The winner is the person ending up with the most $$$.

<Notes on Scoring Methods>

For the "Standard Ranker" and "1-2-3 Ranker" reports, you will notice that there are four "robot" contestants who serve as comparison benchmarks. These are as follows:

1. WHITER = Always predicts white to win.
2. BLACKER = Always predicts black to win.
3. DRAWER = Predicts every game to be drawn.
4. MONKEY = Simulates a monkey that just picks white, black or draw at random, with equal chances for each outcome.

<Miscellaneous comments>:

• I am not always online when the games for a round begin. It would be helpful to me if someone who IS online when the games begin to post a message in this forum simply stating that the games have begun. This lets me know the cut-off point for accepting new predictions for that round.

• TIP: It's easy to get busy and neglect to enter your predictions on time. If so, you'll miss a round, which greatly diminishes your chances of winning. Avoid this by entering a few rounds of predictions in advance. You can always revise them later if you like.

== Notes:

I keep track of all medals won, but in order to appear in the hall of fame, one must win a gold (?) medal.

Medals: ? = Gold; ? = Silver; ? = Bronze

Tournaments: Baz=Bazna Kings; Bie=Biel; Bil=Bilbao; Cro=Croatia; Dor=Dortmund; Gas=Gashimov Memorial; Gre=Grenke; Lin=Linares; Lon=London; Mte=Mtel; Nor=Norway; Pea=Pearl Spring; Sin=Sinquefield; Tal=Tal Memorial; WCC=World Chess Championship/Candidates; Wij=Wijk aan Zee/Tata Steel

Contests: StdRnk=Standard Ranker; 123Rnk=1-2-3 Ranker; BetRnk=Betting Ranker

t = tie

<<> = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = <>>

*<SpaceBar Master>

1)As a dismissive term: arybkanator, afritzionado, ahoudiniado etc, one who blindly follows top computer lines; therefore, not worthy (indignus) to play against one of the best female chess players in the world, with current rating over 2500 and IQ of her husband 150.

2)As a badge of pride: the specific, mostly positive emotion that is product of independent self-reflection; some social psychologists identify it as a proof of a very high level of play of the World Team.**<In its strict signification, denotes an advanced chess player guiding and interpreting computer analysis in a skillfully masterful manner.>

  Golden Executive: From the official site: Due to a COVID-19 contamination in his inner circle, the tournament organisation (after consultation with the chief arbiter) has asked Dubov to play wearing a face mask, in order to protect his opponent, Anish Giri. Dubov did not show for his match, which means that he has lost his game by forfeit. Dubov has indicated that he refuses to play wearing a face mask as a matter of principle. 1-0

<paavoh: Do you count Giri-Dubov 1.d4 1-0 forfeit as a win for White?> Yes.
