      PERIKLES LEAGUE TABLE UPDATED

      Results of Game 7 of 13 July 2008:

      BenM ....B20...S15...C13....Total48...1st...5 points
      FelixK....B7....S20...C20....Total47...2nd...3 points
      StuartF...B18...S13...C15...Total46...3rd...2 points
      NeilP......B9....S21...C19...Total39…..4th...1 point

      I wasn't in the game, so can't give a fun description of how it
      went. But it was a VERY close game, with the points being 48,47,46
      and 39. First-timer at Perikles, BenM won, and rocketed to 2nd in
      the league. StuartF slipped to 4th, and NeilP to 6th, while FelixK
      improved his rating, overtook NeilP, but still is 5th, due to BenM's
      arrival above him.


      SO: the updated "fun league" looks like this:

      Player........Points...Played...Prev Rating..New Rating

      1. BobR.........16.........4..........2.750........3.200

      2. BenM……........5…….......1………........NA.........…2.500

      3. BrianO........5.........1...........NA..........2.500

      4. StuartF.......7.........2..........2.500........2.333

      5. FelixK........9..........3.........2.000........2.250

      6. NeilP........13.........5..........2.400........2.167

      7. AttilaW........4........1...........NA.........2.000
      .
      8. AllanM........5..........2..........1.000.......1.667

      9. MikaelS.......3.........1............NA.......1.500

      10. JosepA........3.........1............NA.......1.500

      11. AndrewM......4..........2.........1.333.......1.333

      12. DaveB.........4..........3.........1.000.......1.000

      13. MartialC......2..........1...........NA.......1.000

      14. RichardB.....1..........1............NA.......0.500

      15. MichaelY......1..........1............NA.......0.500

      In case you are interested, the formula is: points divided by games
      played + 1. And when it's a tie on rating, most recent
      result ranks higher, otherwise alphabetical. Points are 5,3,2,1 for
      a 4-player-game, and 6,4,3,2,1 for a 5-player-game.

      It is still volatile. E.g.if BobR were to come last in the next 4-
      player game, he would drop to 2.833; if, say, AttilaW then won the
      next 5-player game, he would go to 3.333 and probably top the
      league. …. unless BenM won again, in which case he would go to 3.667
      and easily take the top spot.
