Re: 2013 Individial Championship Tournament

Rankings are based on a fairly complicated formula that values best wins vs worse losses. The formula really gives a lot of clout to big wins. Cunha went undefeated in the dual season until losing to Novikov but stayed down at 9 because he did not have the amount of wins that others did. Like Bogaerts had several losses, like 5 or 6 but got higher than Cunha based on wins. I actually think the system is flawed in that way.

Rola is only that low because he did not play the fall events because he played futures. So he started the dual season in January unranked while other players had already accumulated a lot of points.
