Points Calculation (2014)

In previous years, in addition to keeping track of who won the weekly tournaments, we kept a “points” standing to determine our champion for the year (see the calculations at the bottom of this page).

We are no longer keeping track of points.  Our champion in 2014 will be the player who wins the most tournaments.


2013

Philippe Salnave is our 2013 Champion!

For weekly 2012 points results, see the 2012 Standings Excel file.


 We use a “knock-out” tournament format, like a playoff bracket, with byes when necessary. Players get awarded one win-point for winning a match plus the win points his/her opponent had accumulated.

For example, a player who receives a bye in the first round wins his second round match (against a non-bye opponent who had also won his first round match). The player would receive 1 point for winning the match plus the 1 point his opponent had received, for a total of 2.  If he then beats a player in the next round who also had 2 win points, his points tally would be: 1 for winning the match + 2 from his opponent + 2 he had  = 5.

Note that when the number of players in a tournament is n, the winner will get n-1 win points.  Other players receive the highest number of points they achieved before getting knocked out. In the example above, if our hypothetical player got knocked out in the next round, he would receive 5 win-points.

We then convert the win points to standings points by multiplying each win point by the square root of the match length of each win point.  For example, the winner of a 9-player tournament of 7-point matches would get 8 win points, which convert to 21.17 standing points: 8 * (square root of 7) = 8 * (2.646) = 21.17.
