St. Louis ASL Tournament Player Rankings

Starting with the results from the year 2000 tournament,
the results of each game played at St. Louis ASL
tournaments have been entered into a ladder type point
scoring system. The results from 1998 and 1999 were not
used because results from games played those years were
not kept.
Each time a player wins, that player will gain points. Each
time a player loses, that player will lose points. The
number of points you gain or lose is based on you and your
opponent's relative rank. That is, you gain more points for
beating an opponent with a higher rank than you and fewer
points for beating an opponent with a lower rank than you.
Similarly, you lose fewer points if you lose to a higher
ranking opponent and lose more points if you lose to a
lower ranked opponent.
Player Rankings After Each Tournament Year























2000




Point System Each player starts with 1000 points. You gain/lose points based on the differential between you and your opponent's point score at the time you play. The number of points you gain or lose is based on the following two criteria.

1. Base Points Lost or Gained These are points that are gained or lost depending on who wins and loses the game. If the lower rated person wins a game, then the lower rated person gains the points listed in the "Lower Wins" column below while the higher rated person loses that many points. If the higher rated player wins, then use the points listed in the "Higher Wins" column below.





Point Differential 050 51100 101250 251500 >500

Lower Wins 25 30 35 40 45

Higher Wins 25 20 15 10 5

2. Bonus Points Lost or Gained These points are in addition to the points awarded from the Base Points Table above. To find the bonus points lost or gained use the following equation:

Bonus Points = (1000  (PwinPlose)) x 0.01 FRD
where Pwin = point ranking of winning player and Plose = point ranking of losing player
(Bonus Points will never be less than 2 points)
