Klaus Wlotzka is working on Excel statistics to the still running FCP Tourney-2020.
 Much more interesting stats will be follow after the tourney.

 NEW Ranking tool available!
 You dislike Houdini or Fire, Equinox or Rybka ... others in the still running FCP Tourney-2020?
 The way for yourself to calculate ratings without engines you dislike.

 Example 1 for Wasp 4.00:
 Please click on the grafics (higher resolution)!

 Grafik-1: For each of the 41 engines you can see very easy the feared opponents (here for Wasp 4.00).


 Grafik-2: After round 40 of 50 the Wasp 4.00 rating is 2994,18 Elo.


 Grafik 3: Without 6 of the feared opponents the Wasp 4.00 ranking goes higher to 3002,73 Elo.


 With your own fantasy you can generate a lot of other combinations.
 Fore many of possible questions around ratings you will find interesting answers.

 Example 2:
 If you delete the last 5 places you can see that the ranking for the strongest engines goes around 5 Elo higher!!

 Example 3:
 If you add the 10 engines in the middle of the Elo list only ...
 Wasp, Pedone, Chrion, Fritz 16, Vajolet2, Nirvanachess, Winter, Equinox, Igel & Critter
 Wasp 4.00 goes 2 places higher and is on place 1/10, Fritz 16 (Rybka) lost and is on place 4/10 only.

 For people, don't have Microsoft Excel ...
 121 Excel tables can be found as *.pdf files here:
  pdf (*.pdf, Microsoft Excel files, convert to the *.pdf format).

 The current version of Excel statistics by Klaus can be download under:
  xlsx (*.zip, Microsoft Excel files)
