    Confirmed scoring for November 2016


    The Monthly Summary confirms my estimates earlier and the MAX and MIN we were expecting.

    IMT 5.5, MAX 16.9 MIN --7.3, PRC 056, SUN 145 Low Max --0.3

    After checking the provisional scoring against the table of entries to make sure all was in order, I boosted all MIN scores by one to make them similar in logic to the boosted MAX scores, and that required an adjustment of some MAX scores. Some PRC scores were boosted by one point. The only other difference was that some lower IMT scores changed from raw to adjusted as the base dropped from 5.6 to 5.5, also the high score that had been 23 raw became 23 adjusted. (The IMT min progression is 23, 22, 21 etc).

    I also dropped the raw scores that are posted for your information, by 4 points as IMT, PRC and SUN were a bit more extreme than I had used for the first set of calculations. The raw score in brackets would be what the normal scoring system without adjustments would have yielded for your predictions.

    So there you have it, and it's on to the annual update ... congrats to Dacogawa for the big advance in scoring, and to Pauldry and MrSkinner for making something out of this difficult month.

    The four seasons total scoring will be posted soon in a separate post.

    So, the annual scoring race has really tightened up with numerous moves being made up the table, most prolific being Dacogawa who is now a definite contender for both divisions. The Boards award portion is particularly close at this point, and looking at the December forecasts, the leaders have positioned themselves far enough apart in their forecasts that in theory anyone down to about 12th place could move up to the top. The total score division is a little less crowded, and MrSkinner has a lead of 21 on Dacogawa and 26 on Sunflower3 who is currently the leader in the Boards 10 of 12 portion.

    The late surge by Dacogawa resulted in a Four Seasons award, previous contenders failed to add to their totals ... mickger844posts finished second and MrSkinner moved into third.

    Well done Dacogawa and now on to the 2016 finish ...
