    from a quick look, what it seems to be doing in each score group is placing those who have white higher up than those who have black in each round. Well that is what I saw from looking at round 6 pairings and crosstable.

    No, the crosstables and standings are sorted in tie-break order, which in all events is:
    -sum of progressive scores
    -buchholz
    -median buchholz

    If all tie-breaks are equal, it is sorted in starting rank order.

    as i said, a quick check. Must just have been that for the first few boards in round 6, the white player has the higher tiebreak in each of the boards.

    hi raggy''

    HNY btw

    Now listen my sun-affected mate; my post was directed at Matt. This was deliberate since his mind works on a different plane from other posters (a recent episode on 'Where is "sweeneys deleted posts thread?' indicated that I understand the workings of his mind far better than the big 2). If for one moment I thought you were going to respond to my post I would have been less oblique.


    Of course the cross-table was not sorted in rating order.
    Put 2 and 2 together and you will see I was highlighting the terrific performance of Mexicans, Sally Yu and Susan Sheng.

    Stay cool

    regards

    I keep reading these new posts thinking I’m going to find about some new upset. But no, just another series of numbers… ! lol.

    Doesn’t worry me, just amusing. It’s like this vegetarian restaurant I know- they have all sorts of ‘meat’ items on the menu. No matter how often someone tells you it’s only pretend chicken, lamb, fish etc you can’t help the feeling of anticipatory excitement (if you’re a meat eater)…

    hi Watto

    There has been previous debate, but no consensus, as to what defines an upset. Some examples of criteria discussed are 'a win where there was 400 rating points difference, etc'.

    What would you define as an upset?
