Subject: Re: S-B wrongly calculated
Marshmud: They are both tie-breakers. The rule below in SE tournaments, and S-B in regular tourneys. In other words, Thom27 is correct in his original post.

Pedro Martínez: Yes my friend but is that not a BK rule and have nothing to do with the S-B?

Subject: Re: S-B wrongly calculated
Marshmud: This only applies to "single elimination" tournaments.

"Warning! If a normal game ends as a draw, the player with lower BKR would advance to the next round (in case of equal BKRs, the one who didn't start the game - the black player in most games). If you want to avoid such situations, create this tournament with 1 win matches instead."

Thom27 
Subject: Re: S-B wrongly calculated
Marshmud: I don't find a rule anywhere that in case of equal ponts and S-B, the rating decides. But here I found an example of a shared victory in this case. So it seems to be a bug or glitch.

Maybe fencer will find time to fix it.

Thom27: After further investigation I stand behind my original statement. In fact you should of won that tournament.

Marshmud 
Subject: Re: S-B wrongly calculated
coan.net: I thought the Sonneborn-Berger system is used to specify an order of players with the same number of points and is based on a theory that points earned with a stronger opponent are more valuable than with a weaker one. So there should be no tie unless both players have the same BKR.

Marshmud 
Subject: Re: S-B wrongly calculated
coan.net: The actual S-B total sum has been incorrect for some time but the order has been correct. I was explained in the past that if a tie the lower rated player wins. However I think it was in a prize tournament I ran and fencer paid it out that way. Your correct there is a bug .I've noticed the sum of the S-B total has been incorrect in many of the tournaments I've been in

coan.net 
Subject: Re: S-B wrongly calculated
Marshmud: Actually it does look like a bug, the S-B should be 33 for both. Ratings don't matter for the S-B.

S-B is just you add the points for each win they have.

Each players had 1 win against a player that had 9 points.(x1 = 9 points)
Each player had 2 wins against a player that had 6 points (x2 = 12 points)
Each player had 2 wins against a player that had 4 points (x2 = 8 points)
Each player had 2 wins against a player that had 0 points (x2 = 0 points)
Each player had 2 wins against a player that had 2 points (x2 = 4 points)

So each player should have ended up with a 33 S-B rating.

Subject: Re: S-B wrongly calculated
Thom27: Not necessary. If tosty had a lower bkr when this tournament started (feb 2012) and since you two split your match the player with the lower bkr wins. Both of you also won all your other matches.

Subject: S-B wrongly calculated
In this tournament table the S-B values are wrong. Me and tolsty2002 should have the same value, since we have the same match results.

Carnie: you have some contradicting asumptions here...

You talk about the end of brainking - there is no defined end, only in the mind of some fatalists. But even if brainking 'ends', then you would not 'time-out', and even if you would, it wouldn't matter anymore. So where is the problem?

Also, there is a resign button at the bottom. Keeps you from timing out, if it is so important for you.

Did you contact your opponent and ask for a draw (or offer a draw in the game)??

Finally, which part of 'Time per move: 7 days' did you not understand when you signed up for the game? It is well known that many players fully use the alloted time; and it has been discussed about a gazillion times in detail here. If you don't want to play that slow, don't sign up for such games.

Backgammon (robtoo vs. Carnie)

I know I'm being annoying, but would an administrator please delete this game or call it a draw? I picked it off waiting games not knowing I could be stuck in it without getting to play before the end of Brainking. I'm trying to whittle my games down to 0. I don't want to risk timing out when I leave. It started in November and is still in 1st match.

BYW Father Day in the UK is 18th June too.

crosseyed: I prefer Mothersday because I do nothing this day. I've a present and I choose what I want to eat and my children and their father make the meal. I remember that a few years ago, I chose something easy to cook, but now they have experience in cooking, so the meal is better ! It's funny. It makes good memories.

In France, Fathersday is the Sunday 2 or 3 weeks after Mothersday, this year the 18 on June. Is it the same in your country ? Is there a Fathersday in your country ?

Subject: 0-0 is a ilegal move?
Hi. 0-0 is a ilegal move? I have a game against Student89 sarted 17 April 2017. My colour is white, the movings are: 1. e4 c5, 2. Nf3 Nc6, 3. Bb5 d6, 4. h3 Kf6, 5. e5 dxe5, 6. Nxe5 Qd5, 7. Bxc6+ bxc6 8.- Nf3 De6+, 9. Qe2 Qxe2+ 10. Kxe2 Ba6+, 11. Ke1 Nd5, 12. d3 c4 and I want to move 13.- 0-0 But Brainking doesn´t allows me to do this. There is no check over my King neihter checkin his way. So, why not is allowed 0-0 in this position. There is a mistake of programation in this site.
