I don't have the time at the moment to organize GC4 either.

Good to see you again, Fergus!

Fergus Duniho wrote on 2008-10-16 UTC
I'm glad someone stepped in for me and ran this tournament in my absence. I got too busy with other stuff. Now that I'm back, I'm going to try to avoid taking on more responsibilities than I have the time for, which means not running any contests or tournaments for the foreseeable future. If someone else would like to run the next tournament, it's alright with me.

recorded.  Carlos: can you correct these total scores?  Just hit [Edit]

Hey, Carlos - I finished the last game [again]! You can declare the tournament officially over. Thank you for running it. I enjoyed it. Joe

carlos carlos wrote on 2008-05-23 UTC
cool, but see my earlier comment - some of the games you are counting don't count because people lost on time and then didn't really play any games at all...  

how do you get yours to stay in nice lines?

updated scores (sorry for the ugly format, got anything better david?):

GG 12.5 (12.5) AF 12 (12) CC 9 (9) JJ 8.5 (10.5) DP 8.5 (9.5) MS 7 (8) TT 6.5 (7.5) AA 6 (6) GS 5 (5) Je 5 (6) JG 3 (3) AR 2 (2) UB 2 (2)  JR 1 (1)

dead-heats:
AR beats UB
GS beats Je (although Je still has a possible point)

third and fourth place still up for grabs.

gary goes unbeaten and defends his GC2 title.  there are still a few games going on but congratulations gary and antoine, who are guaranteed first and second.  way too good again...

carlos carlos wrote on 2008-03-27 UTC
i've made a table with all the updated results and excluding FD,ST,CP,JL,BB and NF as they didn't complete any games. that leaves 14 players and 13 possible points for each player.

the table won't paste properly into a comment. any ideas? it's just a regular spreadsheet table.

here's the leaderboard though. possible score is in brackets.

GG 11.5 (12.5) AF 11 (12) CC 9 (9) DP 8.5 (9.5) JJ 7.5 (10.5) MS 7 (9) TT 6.5 (8.5) AA 6 (6) GS 5 (5) Je 4 (7) JG 3 (3) UB 2 (3) AR 2 (2) JR 1 (1)

so gary needs at least a half-point from his last game to win the tournament (i think he would win on the countback rules fergus used). antoine could win the tournament if he beats todor and gary loses to michael.

3rd-7th all depend on results from the final round of games too. joe has the third highest possible score at this stage.

Thanks David,

I was more interested in all rated games from the group of games deemed 'VINTAGE' in the past 365 days, the results of which are as follows:

Name Userid              GCR            Percent won GCR1 GCR2 

je ju jejujeju            1564 1.0/1 = 100.00%       1564 1564 
Hans Henriksson hasurami  1548 1.5/2 = 75.00%        1548 1548 
darren paull ramalam 1451 0.5/2 =       25.00%       1451 1451 
juan rodriguez rodriguez 1435 0.0/1 =    0.00%       1435 1435 

...and was interested because it's the only way my enthusiastic yet not very skillful abilities will ever find the top of any rankings...

Thanks.

David,

Appreciate the time and effort you put into posting rankings.  I think most regulars on this board are somewhat competitive and also like to see the rankings.  I'm very pleased to see my team on a board for the first time ever, though the particular end of the board on which we reside wasn't our first choice.

Of late, there has been discussion of some of the 'vintage' variants.  I've also noticed an acute interest in vintage games that have been rated, as they seem to be more seriously contested.

Out of curiosity, is there any way to isolate rated, vintage games played in the last 365 days and see what the rankings are for that?  

If so, would love to see the results.

Thank you, Antoine.

I corrected bruck-mschmahl-2008-52-144 and joejoyce-mschmahl-2008-52-143. The other recently added game already had 14 days of sparetime.

Carlos, Antoine: the tournament game of Voidrider Chess 
 joejoyce-mschmahl-2008-52-143
apparently started with 14 hours of reserve time, rather than 14 days.
Could this please be corrected. 
Thanks,
Joe

i just assigned the final three games.

David Paulowich wrote on 2008-02-06 UTC

carlos wrote [2008-02-01] this is what i was thinking: if the lost players don't confirm an interest within two weeks, they forfeit all their remaining games.

Do we really want someone to come back to this tournament and start playing 10 or 11 opponents? That could take another year.

Nasmichael Farris has a pair of unplayed time forfeits recorded, against myself and Sam Trenholme (who has 'played' only one game here). If these two games were relabled nontournament games, then we could just forget about those two players, instead of going through the messy business of a bunch of forfeits. And the same deal for anyone else who has not made a single move in any game.

I also modified the time settings for adrian-mschmahl-2008-30-525.

Antoine Fourrière wrote on 2008-02-01 UTC
I modified the time settings, but if it doesn't work, I won't be available before Monday (and before I'm getting my new Internet connection, so there's no guarantee).

je ju wrote on 2008-02-01 UTC
Great!!  Just what I need, an extra motivated Joe Joyce to dismantle me in under 10 moves.  

Thanks, Carlos.  

Really.  

Thanks.
