Other players' results are displayed only when the tournament is over.
How are the deals of a tournament dealt?
The number of deals generated for a tournament is higher than the number of deals played so that all players won't play the same deals and not in the same order.
Are non-played deals included in the score displayed?
The average displayed takes into account results on deals played. Only played deals are taken into account. Any non-played deal at the end of the tournament will get a score of 0%.
How are Green Points awarded?
The number of Green Points awarded at the end of a tournament is equal to twice the number of players in the tournament.
The number of points awarded to each player is calculated based on the following formula:
A(r)=K x ((N + a) / r - a)^m (Please note that "m" is an exponent and means "to the power m") where:
- K is a multiplier set so that the sum of the points awarded is equal to the overall number of points.
- a=2, which allows to award Green Points to half of the participants.
- r is the rank reached by the player.
- Up to 50 players: the m exponent is equal to 1/1.9.
- Beyond 50 players: m=1/1.9 - L/60 with L=Napierian logarithm (N/4).
