OLLE BOLL CHALLENGE Sat, 01 December 2012 11:32
OLLE BOLL CHALLENGE

TTR is an excellent game in many ways.
Can be cruel sometimes, hilarious sometimes.
How well it goes depends on luck and of course skill.

I am pretty sure that you may be able to boast your ratings well if you follow some rules and strategy, no cheating of course.
I like to test those. How far can I go in four weeks?(right now 1611 rank 199) In order to make it more exciting I'm launching:

OLLE BOLL CHALLENGE

Here how it goes

Rules and Condition

1. Open to anybody
2. Competitors post the highest score they think I will have sometime during the rest of this year. Challenge continues all year out.
3. Last time for joining is Sunday 2nd of Dec 2400 CET. You are free to post from now. I will not play any games between Sunday 2nd 1500-2400
4. I will apply my strategy from Monday 3rd
5. I will do my very best to win all games.
6. The one with the closest guess of my highest score wins. If 2 are as close, the one who first posted the score wins
7. The winner will receive a specially designed OLLE BOLL CHALLENGE PRIZE

ENJOY

Re:OLLE BOLL CHALLENGE Sat, 01 December 2012 12:56
1740 is my prediction.

My own experience is that I never improved significantly my rating when I was only focused in doing it.

Anyway, I'll be happy if you prove me wrong and reach the number one Cool

I think with "Open to anybody" he meant anybody can make a prediction, not that he was going to play games open to anybody Cool

Re:OLLE BOLL CHALLENGE Fri, 14 December 2012 07:30
Well. Sometimes things don't work out the way you plan.
I had a strategy how to raise my rating but....
I think I broke most of my intentions first few days.
So here I am 12 days after the challenge started with all 150 games played.
Games that I planned to play during the whole challenge period, remaining 2012.
During this part of the challenge my best score was 1685


So we have a winner RV54
I will fix a prize for you.

However, hopefully I learned something from this.
Therefore I decided to enter phase 2.

For the remaining period I will try to play according to my plans and hopefully we will have 2 winners.
Right now, 1661. rank 94. 27109 games.

Finally, thanks for all interests and support

Re:OLLE BOLL CHALLENGE Mon, 31 December 2012 16:05
Dear friends of TTR

The Olle Boll challenge is finally over

1742, rank 19

I'm very glad that It's over and that the second and finalnwinner is

PEGASO


Big grats. I'm going to contact even you for the promised price

You wrote that you never improved significantly your rating when you were only focused in doing it. How true this has been.


My plan, or at least my first intention, was quite basic:

Don't play if you are tired, hungry or just had alcohol
Take your time, don't rush
If you start loosening stop. Don't go- just one more
Choose opponents that are high rated that you normally beat

But in this task I broke all of them. Again and again
Following rules like this is tiresome and a bit boring
So I hopefully go for LESS IS MORE in the future,

Finally, I would like to wish the community a great 2013

For me the year 2012 has been very exciting and tough in so many ways.
I have never experienced so much changes in my life since I when I was 17-23 or so (i'm 53 now)
Now i,m entering 2013 in a great and curious way. Thx community for being an important part of 2012

The community is very fascinating. Keep on writing outrageous messages but
don't hurt each other

HAPPY NEW YEAR
