Some years ago I came up with a new but simple system to calculate the final standings of a tournament including all players. 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.

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.

Our new contest manager for game results prediction User: Golden Executive during the tournament also ([1-0], [1/2], [0-1])!

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

Enjoy!

  lostemperor: <Keyser Soze> Sorry, your predictions cannot be counted in because of a last minute change in Tata line up Dubov -> Donchenko, which you missed.
Jan-17-21  Keyser Soze: Can you "replace "for me and count like they are the "same" , for gaming purposes?

I dont mind.

  WinKing: Good call <lostemperor>. The right thing to do.

The 'force' is definitely with you, your kicking our butts.

  Penguincw: Yes, I second that. Good call <lostemperor> on allowing the replacement thing.

  lostemperor: yes the last minute replacement for Dubov was unfortunate and if no one or few had it, I would have cancelled Dubov or Donchenko altogether. But since almost everyone got the replacement, this is the only thing I can do.
