Canterbury Open 2020

Canterbury Open 2020 has finished. You can find the results here.

Also, I’ve calculated the improvement score for each player. Please see the previous post to become familiar with it. The results are in the table below. You can find a more detailed report in Comments.

1Ullah,Sami0.26u1600 =2nd
2Allison,Brian C0.24u1800 1st
3Ng,Clive0.19Open 2nd
4Monir,Arman0.12
5Gergis,Steven0.11
6Dragalchuk,Vladislav0.09Open 3rd
7Dib,Michel0.06u1600 1st
8Fernandez,Daniel Howard0.02Open 1st
9Flatow,A (Fred)-0.01
10Drastik,Penelope-0.02
11Huynh,Arthur-0.10
12Allison,Graham-0.10u1800 2nd
13Tefanis,Frank-0.12
14Plaza-Quinteros,Francisco-0.12
15Brown,Ted-0.26u1600 =2nd
Ineligible players
(not enough rated games):
16Ahmed,Zafar0.00
17Merhi,Alexandre-0.11u1800 3rd
18Issa,Mostafa-0.39
19Zirdum,Ivan-0.43

The last column is the standard official rating category prize the player has won. It’s not based on the improvement score.

I think this shows how the standard rating category prize distribution fails: in the cases 12, 15, 17 the players performed pretty badly given their current ratings but still won u1800 or u1600 prizes.
Also, Sami Ullah had an impressive performance but got only the equal 2nd prize under 1600.
