5 way tie in Amazon championship 4.2.2
  • Andy Olsen at 2003-06-17


    When I finished all my games I tried to figure out what I needed the other players to for me to finish top 2. This is not one of the possibilities I considered! :)

    I didn’t check the other groups, but the next championship might end up being:

    #1 and #2 from top league
    #1 and #2 from first level 2 league
    #1-5 from second level 2 league!

    Sorry to #3-9 in the top league! :

  • Dvd Avins at 2003-06-18

    I believe positions 3 through 5 are guaranteed not to drop. That means the 1st league could have more than 9 players.

  • Andy Olsen at 2003-06-18

    Ok here’s what the FAQ has to say on the matter:

    "The first 2 of each league advance to a better league in the next tournament. Since draws can occur, it might be possible that more players advance. The first 3 of a league are always certain to maintain (if not advance) their place. Normally up to 5th place is pretty sure."

    So I think the next championship will be:

    Top league #1,2,3 = jymon, Craig Reilly, Jaroslav Zisek
    First level 2 league #1,2 = Jose Ribas, mirror_man
    Second level 2 league #1-5 = klaashaas, ypercube, Andy Olsen, Benjamin C Good, Robin

    For a total of 10 players. Glad to see Richard has clearly spelled out in the rules what will happen in this situation! :-)

  • Dvd Avins at 2003-06-19

    Richard changed it some and explained it in a forum thread not long ago.

    First, all of the players in the top 10 rating list go into the ast group. Then, at all levels, the top 5 don’t drop, the top 2 do move up. If a group has fewer than 9, (because of dropouts or whatever) then more players who finished worse than 2nd are taken up from below.

    What he didn’t say is, if a group still has fewer than 9, which happens first — not dropping the players who finished badly, or brining up players from more than one level below.

    I understood, the top10 players who never have been in the first league start there, other top10 players have to earn it!

  • Dvd Avins at 2004-02-13

    Well, I left out a part for simplicity. If you’ve been in the 1st group then, yes, you don’t get an automatic berth by being in the top-10.

    But there are not two separate top-10 lists. There’s one list and anyone on it who’s never been in the top group gets an automatic berth.

  • Andy Olsen at 2005-07-15

    Looks like there is going to be another tie in 2nd league to make the next 1st league >9 players. Assuming ypercube wins his last game in 10.2.1, I will be tied with klaashaas for 2nd.

    Here is what I think the 11th championship will look like:

    From 10.1.1:
    1. p_a_k_o
    2. Tobias
    3. Michael Engels
    4. Jose Ma Grau Ribas
    5. Orbilin

    From 10.2.1:
    1. miuek
    2. klaashaas
    2. Andy Olsen

    From 10.2.2:
    1. JJ Flash
    2. Bela Nagy

    Now come on ypercube, don’t let me down! :-)

  • ypercube ★ at 2005-07-16

    My win in the last game is sure from some time ago. What you should thank me for, is the win against klaashas. I needed it to stay at 2nd level and I’m glad it helps someone to go to the 1st!

  • ypercube ★ at 2005-07-16

    Andy, don’t forget that you might be up to 12 people at the next championship because currently at Top-10 are also caronte from Italy (having just won a 3rd level championship tourn.) and Tim Slih from USA (having never played in any championship tourn.)

  • Tasmanian Devil at 2005-07-16


  • ypercube ★ at 2005-07-16

    Yes, sorry Tim Shih. It’s too bad that there isn’t an edit (and preview) post feature.

  • Tasmanian Devil at 2005-07-16

    But you have been calling him Slih since he started playing here...:-)

  • ypercube ★ at 2005-07-16

    Yes, I have. :(
    And once – or twice – you make a mistake, it makes a habbit.

  • Tim Shih at 2005-07-19 I used to read this Amazons forum frequently. But for a while the forum had been dormant. So I started not paying attention. And oops, what do you know, my last name became a topic one day. What an honor! :)

    Anyway, I am here to say hi, and to wish all the contestants in the forthcoming championship interesting games.
