Explanation & Comments

Eric van Balkum: As I am not familiar with this Round Robin-structure... Am I correct in supposing this is the final ranking? And these players did not make the two final hanchans (which were only open for the best 32)?
Vitaly Novikov: Please, explain, why the places starting from 5th to the end are divided?
Senechal Duhaut: Obvious answerMonday, 21 July 2014 10:11
Ranks 5-32 are all paired on equal footing because everyone kept playing to the semi-final. So from the top, while the top 2 from the SF tables moved on, the bottom two did not. Third places are considered equivalent, fourth places as well. The next brackets have their firsts (9+10, 17+18, 25+26) and others placed as well, as ex aequo. There may be a way to break these ties, but it is irrelevant and there is no merit in doing so.
Jesper Nøhr: The reason is that positions 5-16, 17-24 and 25-32 was played over two games against the same opponents and you got overall 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th at the table. As all brackets included two tables it resulted in joint placements, as the score+uma was ignored. In my situation I finished joint 19, so I see myself finishing in Top 20 :)
