Grand Prix Tables and Methodology

We give here the tables and formulas used to calculate the Grand Prix points awarded for each tournament played in.

Standard table

The table below is a sample (and may not be the current) standard Grand Prix points table. To find your Grand Prix point score in the table below, find the row for your section and the column for your score in that section.

For example, let’s say you scored 3 wins in a 4-round Reserve section. You would then get 356 Grand Prix points.

Note that, for non-negative scores, it takes 1½ extra points to double your score. For example, a score of 2 in the Primary section is worth 141 points, while a score of 3.5 is worth 283 points.

Additional notes:

-         A score of just ½ point in a 4-round event does not earn Grand Prix points.

-         There are small differences caused by rounding the results of the calculations used to produce these tables. We always use the rounded scores, as stated in the table, to compute total Grand Prix points.

Grade-based events

In addition to the standard table for each season, the season's grade championships each have their own tables:

The Grand Prix points table for the 2018 Greenwich City Championships

This table is unique to this event. it is based on the field attending, and will be published after the 2018 event.

 

The Grand Prix points table for the 2018 Westchester County Championships

This table is unique to this event. it is based on the field attending, and will be published after the 2018 event. 

 

Methodology (illustrated for 2013)

Table for 4-round sections. We start by presenting the complete 2013 table for a 4-round section, including a hypothetical 4-round over-1300 section.

We adjust this table by shifting the negative scores one column to the left, and dropping the ½ point scores in the 4-round sections.

As noted earlier, for non-negative scores, it takes 1½ extra points to double your score. Negative scores are adjusted one column (½ point) to the left, so that they earn fewer relative points. A side effect is that within the negative score columns it takes only one extra point to double your score.

As also noted, a score of just ½ point in a 4-round event does not earn Grand Prix points.

Feb 2013 Table for 3-round sections. Since the Future Masters is actually run as a 3-rounder, we use the table for a 3-round tournament. This is done by shifting all cells ½ point  to the right. Thus, the score for 3.5 points in the 4-round table becomes the score for 3 points in the 3-point table. The rationale: since you will be playing an opponent who has matched your score through 3 rounds, the likely average outcome of the 4th game is ½  point.

Grand Prix tables for other numbers of rounds, if and when needed, will be formulated using the same approach.

Combined table. We combine the first row of the 3-round table with the remaining rows of the 4-round table to produce the current standard table:
