Scobol Solo 10/22

Post by Deviant Insider » Fri Sep 09, 2011 8:59 am

This is an invitation to participate in the Eleventh Annual New Trier Scobol Solo, to be held on Saturday, October 22, 2011. New Trier is located in Winnetka, just north of Chicago.

This tournament is being mirrored on October 29 at Carbondale and on November 12 at Springfield. If you are interested in registering for those tournaments, contact Sharon Lorinskas at Carbondale at srobinson_lorinskas@yahoo.com or David Adkins at Springfield at dadkins@springfield.k12.il.us.

Unlike most other tournaments, this one will feature one-on-one matches (i.e. no teams). Each match will consist of twenty tossup questions without bonuses. Each individual who enters is guaranteed seven matches, which will take place from 9:00-3:00. We will then have a Championship Match at 3:30 featuring the top nine students all playing at once.

The cost to participate is $30 per player for the first fifteen players on your team. If you can supply an experienced moderator, then the cost is only $20 per player for the first fifteen players, and it is only $10 per player if you have two moderators. I am willing to negotiate if you have more than two moderators. Lunch will be provided for everybody. Keep in mind that moderators will be unable to watch their own players' matches. Even if you don't moderate, there will be several times that some of your students play at the same time. If you wish to enter more than fifteen players, they will be entered on a standby basis. If there is room for them to play, they will play for free. I will let you know by October 15 how much room we have--we are hoping to have exactly 128 students total.

Old questions are at: http://www.quizbowlpackets.com/. The tournament is set up so that matches always feature two students with identical records.

Please return the enclosed form with a check. It can be found at
http://www.newtrier.k12.il.us/media/fil ... form11.pdf
If you want to hold some spaces for your school while your business office is cutting the check, email me at reinsted@newtrier.k12.il.us or call me at (847)784-6616. Reserve spaces by October 12.

This tournament is half full, so it's time for a bump. Also, we could use lots of moderators.

I could still use a few more moderators. You get good pizza and get paid, and it is an easy tournament to moderate for if you can tolerate me.

By the way, unless the online scoring system has problems, the Desperation Shot has been retired. The players in the Championship Match will be determined as follows:

0a. The one player who went 7-0 is in the championship match.

0b. The seven players who went 6-1 are in the championship match.

0c. One additional player is chosen from among the 5-2 players for the championship match according to the procedure outlined in #1 et seq.

1. If among the 5-2 players there is a unique player with the highest number of points scored -- excluding tiebreaker questions -- (s)he is selected.

2. If #1 does not select a player, and if among the group tied for the highest number of points scored there is a unique player with the latest round number of his/her second loss, (s)he is selected.

3. If #2 does not select a player, and if among the group tied for the highest number of points scored and latest time of second loss there is a unique player with the latest round number of his/her first loss, (s)he is selected.

4. If #3 does not select a player, and if among the group tied for all criteria so far considered there is a unique player whose opponents collectively scored the most points, (s)he is selected.

5. If #4 does not select a player, and if among the group tied for all criteria so far considered there is a unique player who at some point faced the 7-0 player, (s)he is selected.

6. If #5 does not select a player, and if among the group tied for all criteria so far considered there is a unique player who faced the most 6-1 players, (s)he is selected.

7. If #6 does not select a player, all players tied for all criteria so far considered will enter the championship match.

Everything about the actual execution of the Championship Match—notably that the player who was 7–0 in the regular rounds sits out the first 20 questions, entering with a score equal to the highest score of any player who played questions 1–20; that after 40 questions, only the 4 players with the highest scores will remain; and that after 50 questions, only the 2 players with the highest scores will remain—remains the same as in previous years.

Andrew Van Duyn is being added to the field. I don't know at this time whether or not this will destroy all the pairings Jonah posted above.

It does. I probably won't have a chance to post the new pairings at a useful time.

My prediction remains the same, except replace Dylan Minarik with Andrew Van Duyn, Abid with Dylan, me with Abid, Blake with me.

I'm very curious as to how you're coming up with such precise predictions. Are you using the schedule to do this, or are you just making educated guesses? The former seems like it'd be extremely time-consuming.

I'm using the schedule to do this, but it didn't take that much time (maybe half an hour). For example, my prediction assumed you to go W,W,W, L to Nolan Winkler, W, W against me, L to Alex Kling. There is a lot of uncertainty, though, and probably only a 20-25% chance of exactly that happening.

Wow, interesting. You're obviously much more efficient at figuring these things out than I am. Then again, I'm sure you have some sort of legitimate system, whereas I just crudely shift my eyes over the page and scroll a lot.

Oh and yeah Usman is just going to tear this field to shreds.

The Scobol Solo bracket is designed for 128 players; after last minute drops, we have 125. The Phantom system is designed to keep the tournament running without granting byes.

A player who is scheduled to play against a Phantom essentially has an automatic win in that round; to play the packet, they will play against another player (called Phantom) who is not scheduled to play that round themselves. The Phantom plays regularly, and any tossup (s)he gets is marked as dead. The other player plays regularly, any tossup (s)he gets is recorded for their stats, and they will win the game with a score of (whatever)-to-nothing.

I'll let Reinstein fix anything I screwed up in this explanation later.

Lloyd Sy beat previously unbeaten Alex Kling, who has the second most tossups in the tournament through 5 rounds,15-4 to move to 6-0. That score dropped his average score below 16 TU/game. :shock:

Since the live updates are broken now or something, Dylan Minarik secures a bid to the finals with a 12-7 win over Andrew van Duyn in my room.

Thanks for coming out, everybody, and congratulations to Lloyd and a lot of other people. Remember that these questions will be mirrored later, do do not discuss them here. If you have any comments on them, please email me and/or Jonah. The questions will be made public when it is appropriate to do so, which is in about a month.

Since the questions at this tournament don't usually lead to a lively discussion even when they aren't mirrored, I don't know if there is a need for a private forum. If anyone disagrees, Jonah and/or I can moderate it.

Also, there probably are some errors in the stats. Don't be shy about emailing me and/or Jonah about them. If looking at questions will help you figure things out, that can also be arranged.

The scoresheet from the Championship Match is available at http://www.ihssbca.org/statistics/2011_ ... inals.html. There are still a few matches missing from the stats, but it's probably as complete as it will get. (If you have data from a missing match, though, please do email it to me.)

This set has been mirrored at Springfield and sent to the archive. The set that will appear in the archive is the version used at Springfield. The changes are:
"succession" was changed to "secession" in the Sam Houston question.
The order of Round 7 was changed so Algeria and Meursault are not back-to-back.
The lead-in to the Mean Value Theorem was improved.
The economic cycles question was improved.
The giveaway to South Africa (lit) was improved.
The Australia (lit) question was changed to a Don Quixote question.

All comments are welcome and can be made in public.

I wrote most of the science and, I think, all the biology. I don't have the precise conversion stats in front of me, but I recall that at New Trier the physics, chemistry, and other science all had about 67% conversion while the biology was around 40%. I'm still trying to figure that one out and I'd like some feedback on the biology questions.

The questions are now posted. Sorry for the delay--I assumed that the person in charge of HSQB Packets was going to make some type of minimal effort to post them, and I should not have made that faulty assumption.
