Here are men´s results. This time 90 points could be won because all 6 entries were scored.
Many participants expected Zhang in 3rd and Chen in 4th and had everything else correct, which led to many silver medals. Only one person had everything right:
The winner with the perfect score of 90 points is Roo87 :bow::hb:

Silver with 80 points is shared by Alex65, apgold, Chris Cooper, CrazyKittenLady, GarthAqua, GoneWithTheWind, Gourlie, Hyena, Dreamer57, invisiblespiral, Jeanie19, ladyjane, Pandicorn, purplecat, Shakuhachi, SnowWhite, TheMightyBidoof, yqs100, YuBluByMe

Bronze with 75 points goes to Sherlock Marple, who sadly submitted only 5 entries, otherwise it would have been gold

Congrats to all medallists!

You know, there is something fitting about this. After being one of only two players to not get the Gold in Pairs, @Roo87 becomes the only player to get the Gold in Men.

Now all we need is for @yqs100 to become the only player to get the Gold in one of the remaining categories...

Hello everyone,

Ice Dance results are now put into the spreadsheet - A LOT of perfect scores, few 65 pts (due to switching 3rd place with 4th) and one score of 30 pts. Please let me know here or via PM If there's an error :):):)

My strategy of random selection worked great. Two gold medals! Two non-podiums, but OK.

That is MILES better than I've ever done when I tried to make intelligent choices with a few reasonable long shots thrown in.

Can someone explain why I only got 65 points in men? I only had 3/4 switched so shouldn't I get 80 points and a silver medal?

You´re right. I made a mistake in copying your predictions :palmf:. Sorry and congrats to your medal! I will correct it.

I want to agree with you. This is strange. And funny). I don't know much about North American skaters and I must honestly admit I know absolutely nothing about Chinese. :scratch2:(Well, maybe except for two names.) Nevertheless, it made me the leader at the moment. Amazing. :biggrin: However, I do not hope for success in the Rostelecom Cup, because my preferences will be on the side of my favorites, and this is a direct path to fiasco.:biggrin:

Just letting everybody know that I have put the podium positions tables for the Cup Of China up in the Hall Of Fame Thread:

https://www.goldenskate.com/forum/posts/2650066/

Just wondering - now that we have the ability to tag members in posts, would you prefer the names in the tables to be tags rather than just text?

When I was posting the Pairs results, I initially posted the names as text, but then edited it so that the names would be tags. However, I don't know if retro-editing tags in means that you get notified that you have been tagged.

So, could somebody let me know if they got a notification after I edited the Pairs results post?

The reason I ask is that, because I posted the Hall Of Fame tables at the start of the Game and am now editing the names in, there is not really much point making the names in the table into tags if you don't get notified.

While I'm happy that you don't just give yourself platinum medals, I must point out that it's a real lost opportunity!

:ROFLMAO: I thought exactly the same. I know the top 2-3 North Americans in each discipline (more in men, less in dance) and next to nothing about most of the Chinese skaters and still I ended up in second place overall :scratch2: But now the pressure is really on for Rostelecom and I am in a conundrum whether to predict a win for my faves or for skaters with a realistic chance of actually winning (the two do not necessarily overlap).
