thanks to our hosts Crist and Rosanna Miller! | Rated2 will be new
rating after this tournament | S.B. is a method of tie-breaker.
A player's Neustadtl Sonneborn–Berger score is calculated by adding the sum of
the conventional scores of the players he has defeated to half the sum of the
conventional scores of those he has drawn against. The main point is to give
more value for a win/draw against a player ranked high, than for a win/draw
against a player ranked low in the tournament.
