Six players participated in the Vesalius challenge at the 7th Leuven Open, for a total of 6 x 6 = 36 matches, at €2 stake per match, so €72. For each match a performance rating (PR) was computed using eXtremeGammon. To each PR, a score between 0 and 2 was calculated:
- PR > 6 : score = 0
- PR < 4 : score = 2
- 4 < PR < 6 : score = 6 – PR
The pay-off for each player is proportional to the total score obtained by that player.
The highest scores were for Paul van Dijke, Michel Lamote, and Guy Van Middelem. No coincidence perhaps that these gentlemen also constitute the Brugge team, winner of the 4 Cubes 2015?
Remark: in his match with Zsolt Tasnadi, Michel Lamote lost on time. Since losing on time costs tons of equity, this has been taken into account as a “resignation error”.
Thanks to all participants for having joined this fun an instructive experiment.
