Thanks, corrected.

Very cool, this should be a fun competition for the rest of the summer! I'm definitely worried about Jose starting to make his move. Also can't wait to see MC's puzzle on Monday!

Just curious, though, either I don't really understand the scoring system or there was a mistake somewhere...

The way I understood it since this was puzzle #9, these standings should include puzzles #3 through #9 and we would have lost the points from puzzle #2 this week.

Since Mr. C won puzzle 2 (100 pts) and I was in the bottom half for puzzle 2 (50 pts), I expected my points to increase this week for being in the top half (#6/14) and his to go down since he didn't win (#3/14), thus widening the gap from last week instead of shrinking it. So what am I missing?

Happy Manny Day everyone!!!

ubragg,

I think you're right, assuming I understand what's going on behind the PCS rankings. I usually just assume I miscalculated.

I've got my work cut out for me, but if can just manage to stay one slot above the yellow jersey, the rest will work itself out.

Hey guys, I'll double-check the scoring tomorrow-

Josh S. said...

I have the modest goal of cracking the top ten.

Eric Karros said...

Ok, I think I corrected the scores. Sorry about that -

Steve Sax said...

Ubragg jumps out to a huge lead...will the Mr. Customer be right again as always?

Ubragg said...

Thanks EK, looks right to me!

I've definitely got my work cut out to hold on to the top spot -- the next two puzzles to drop off the back end were big scorers for me. In fact, given that MC's score is set for next week, it looks like it is mathematically impossible to gain any more ground. Even if I finish first, he'll gain on me by a point!

Mr. Customer said...

Sax,

So far, the problem hasn't been whether I'm right, it's how soon.

The next few puzzles will help me out (as noted above), but the nice thing about the rolling total is that you only have to finish one spot above the leader, and you've gained ground in the long run.

Um...who's that "neebs" guy?
