### Average performance

#### What is the average performance?

Player's average performance is represented by three values: percentage (MP tournaments), IMP score (IMP tournaments) and overall value (performance taking all deals into account by converting IMP deals into a percentage). They reflect the player's level.

Example: 53%/+1 IMP/55%. It means that on average, the player scores 53% in MP tournaments and +1 IMP per deal in IMP tournaments, which is an overall average of 55%.

Here it is important to note that how your average performance is calculated also depends on the one achieved by other tournament participants. For more details, read the section "How is the average performance calculated?" (See APT, which stands for "Average Performance in the Tournament").

#### Where can I find other players' average performance and mine?

The average performance can be found in your profile and in any player's profile (click on any player's username anywhere in the app to access it).

#### How is the average performance calculated?

Player's average performance is calculated based on:
• The deals he plays in the following game modes: practice deals, tournaments of the day, series tournaments, challenges, exclusive tournaments, team tournaments, easy tournaments, Face the Elites, special tournaments and federation tournaments.
• The average performance achieved by other tournament participants and hence "APT" (Average Performance in the Tournament).

Game modes involving a partner (private tables, pairs tournaments, etc.) are not included.

The average performance in the tournament (APT) represents the average performance of all players in the tournament who have played at least 1 deal.
The APT is expressed as a percentage in MP tournaments and as an IMP score in IMP tournaments.

To determine the player's average performance on a deal, we use the following calculation formulas:

Scored by MPs
Player's performance on the deal = player's result on the deal * (100 - 2 * (50 - APT)) / 100

Example #1:
The player scores 60% in a tournament with an APT of 70%.
His average performance on the deal = 60 * (100 - 2 * (50 - 70)) / 100 = 84%.

Example #2:
The player scores 60% in a tournament with an APT of 40%.
His average performance on the deal = 60 * (100 - 2 * (50 - 40)) / 100 = 48%.

Scored by IMPs
Player's performance on the deal = player's result on the deal + APT

Example #1:
The player scores +2 in a tournament with an APT of +4.
His average performance on the deal = 2 + 4 = 6 IMPs.

Example #2:
The player scores +2 in a tournament with an APT of -2.
His average performance on the deal = 2 + (-2) = 0 IMPs.

The player's overall average performance is the average of all his average performances up to the last 1,000 deals played and is expressed as a percentage.
Therefore his IMP average performance is converted into a percentage as follows:
Player's average performance as a percentage = 50 + (player's IMP average performance * 7)

Example #1:
The player has an IMP average performance of +2.
His average performance converted into a percentage = 50 + (2 * 7) = 64%.

Example #2:
The player has an IMP average performance of 0.
His average performance converted into a percentage = 50 + (0 * 7) = 50%.

It is important to note that the deals taken into account in the calculation of the player's (IMP and MP) average performance are the last 1,000 deals played.

Example:
The player has a MP average performance of 60% for the last 900 deals played (among the last 1,000 deals played).
The player has an IMP average performance of -5 for the last 100 deals played (among the last 1,000 deals played).
To calculate the player's overall average performance, his IMP average performance is converted into a percentage: 50 + (-5 * 7) = 15%.
Then we calculate the average of his two types of average performance weighted by how the last 1,000 deals played are split:
((60 * 900) + (15 * 100)) / 1,000 = 55.5%.

#### Is my average performance impacted in case I withdraw?

The calculation of the average performance is not impacted in case you withdraw from a deal with no determined contract. In other words, if you withdraw from a deal after choosing your contract, it will be taken into account in the calculation.

#### My average performance is not changing. Is this normal?

The average performance is not updated until the end of a tournament.
We remind you that series tournaments are closed at the end of each period, i.e. 1st-15th and 16th-end of each month.

Moreover, below 100 deals played, we don't consider the average performance as representative and your values remain 50%/0 IMPs.
