How Daily Tournament % is scored:

First we calculate Match Points:

• 1. We determine a maximum score equal to the number of participants in the tournament and subtract 1.
• 2. This score is attributed to the best player, then subtract 1 point to the next player, and so on up to the last player.
• 3. In the case of a tie, players' points are added and divided by the number of ties. The figure obtained is then attributed to each player.
• 4. Now it just needs to be converted into a %, i.e. points are multiplied by 100 and divided by the maximum number of points.<\li>

Example of a tournament result with 9 players:

Results are: 1 x 650, 4 x 620, 2 x 170, 1 x 140 and 1 x 110. The points obtained are:

• 8 points for 650, which will give the following result 8 x 100 / 8 = 100%
• (7+6+5+4)/4, i.e. 5.5 points for 620, which will give the following result: 5.5 x 100 / 8 = 68.75%
• (3+2)/2, i.e. 2.5 points for 170, which will give the following result: 2.5 x 100 / 8 = 31.25%
• 1 point for 140, which will give the following result: 1 x 100 / 8 = 12.5%
• 0 point for 110, which will give the following result: 0 x 100 / 8 = 0%
