Why Robert is still ranked number one

[<<] [>>] by Chris Williams
14th July 2001 (Other News)

Some of you may be wondering why Robert is still number one in the rankings when Reg has won the World and Men's Championships in the last month beating Robert in the final in both.

The record for both players this season is shown below. It may be seen that Reg's grade (which is an averaging of the index) is on the rise and if he can win most of his games at the Jersey Open next weekend then he will go back to number one.

The head to head record (also shown below) between the 2 players is very close with Robert one game ahead after 57 games between the pair since they first met in 1987.

To find out what the different numbers (index and grade) mean have a look at the articles on the Oxford University website.

IDX-C is Index after game (Base 100 - to get published figure multiply by 10 and add 1000)
GRD-C is Grade after game
IDX-O is opponent's index after game
