Tournament points are accumulated by competing in Chess.com tournaments. There are four factors we look at that affect how many points a player gets in a tournament.
The Formula: 10 * (P * (1.5R) * G * (S/1000))
How to calculate "P"
|PLACE FINISH||"P" VALUE|
|4||.1 * ((((T / 2) -2) - (p - 3)) / ((T / 2) - 2))|
T= Total Players
p= Place Finish (p must be less than or equal to 1/2 of T to earn points)
"R" is calculated as (G/A)^X = T, solve for X.
A = number of players who advance per group.
