Gee I wish I'd entered earlier. :(

I think you will find that the third tie-breaker operates on the basis of one extra point for each letter in your name ;)

But don't you get an extra two points for a letter being capitalized?

Yes MR, 1 per letter, plus 2 extra for each capitalized letter so 3 total per capitalized letter.

So the fourth tie-breaker gives an extra point for every letter that appears twice in your name?

Wow... 10 points in 4 games might get to advance...

Grats to Bats, top of the board and almost unbeatable unless someone solos twice in 2 games.

I hope you're right, but I still think the cut will be at 12 or 13 points.

It seems the average score is 3-4 but the potential max per player we could see is

Batsman--------------23 (DONE) 23
Diplomat-------------20 (DONE) 20
AQ--------------------12 (DONE) 12
camroc---------------12 (DONE) 12
bitwise---------------10 (1 game) 22
jeanphi---------------10 (DONE) 10
Dar Krum--------------7 (2 games) 31
mdmuff---------------7 (DONE) 7
Master Radishes-----6 (1 game) 18
Dunam----------------5 (2 games) 29
22.rhathaway--------4 (1 game) 16
sanje-----------------4 (DONE) 4
lotr_freak------------4 (DONE) 4
superhik--------------4 (DONE) 4
GruGloG--------------4 (1 game) 16
Grymm---------------3 (1 game) 15
Yorkshireman--------3 (2 games) 27
jaredstoff------------3 (1 game) 15
sroca-----------------3 (DONE) 3
(msichs--------------3) 3
(Lbohh---------------3) 3
(Spitfire-------------3) 3
(khan1234-----------2) 2
The Leader----------0 (2 games) 24
jthiher---------------0 (2 games) 24
Sheddy---------------0 (1 game) 12
Martz-----------------0 (1 game) 12
Uncle Monty---------0 (1 game) 12
ryan_the_canuck----0 (1 game) 12
Kian------------------0 (1 game) 12
chabz44--------------0 (1 game) 12
rick.leeds------------0 (1 game) 12

But we have, what? 3 games left right? If everyone is averaging say 3-4 in a win the totals would look more like:

Batsman--------------23 (DONE) 23
Diplomat-------------20 (DONE) 20
AQ--------------------12 (DONE) 12
camroc---------------12 (DONE) 12
bitwise---------------10 (1 game) 14
jeanphi---------------10 (DONE) 10
Dar Krum--------------7 (2 games) 14
mdmuff---------------7 (DONE) 7
Master Radishes-----6 (1 game) 10
Dunam----------------5 (2 games) 12
22.rhathaway--------4 (1 game) 8
sanje-----------------4 (DONE) 4
lotr_freak------------4 (DONE) 4
superhik--------------4 (DONE) 4
GruGloG--------------4 (1 game) 8
Grymm---------------3 (1 game) 7
Yorkshireman--------3 (2 games) 10
jaredstoff------------3 (1 game) 7
sroca-----------------3 (DONE)
(msichs--------------3)
(Lbohh---------------3)
(Spitfire-------------3)
(khan1234-----------2)
The Leader----------0 (2 games) 7
jthiher---------------0 (2 games) 7
Sheddy---------------0 (1 game) 4
Martz-----------------0 (1 game) 4
Uncle Monty---------0 (1 game) 4
ryan_the_canuck----0 (1 game) 4
Kian------------------0 (1 game) 4
chabz44--------------0 (1 game) 4
rick.leeds------------0 (1 game) 4

And realistically we have only 36 more points total to be distributed so this is just max per player. I would expect players with 6-7 and 2 games left are the only ones likely to get enough to advance. I put the likely advancers at 7 of these 11 players with the advantage going to the ones that have 2 games left to play so Bit, DK and Dunam (though I'm recalling that he took a leave from the site so was he replaced?) with Bats, AQ, cam and myself though jeanphi, MR, 22 and York could make it with a 6 player draw or solo.

Batsman--------------23 (DONE) 23
Diplomat-------------20 (DONE) 20
AQ--------------------12 (DONE) 12
camroc---------------12 (DONE) 12
bitwise---------------10 (1 game) 14
jeanphi---------------10 (DONE) 10
Dar Krum--------------7 (2 games) 14
Master Radishes-----6 (1 game) 10
Dunam----------------5 (2 games) 12
22.rhathaway--------4 (1 game) 8
Yorkshireman--------3 (2 games) 10

Should be interesting when they all wrap up.
