There are several results worthy of special comment:
1. Frank Schrader not only had the highest score, but actually got 100% of the quizzes right, the only player to do so. Very impressive, Frank! But even more impressive is that Frank won first place in the Q1 and Q3 2011 playoffs as well. In other words, Frank has placed 1st in 3 of 4 quarterly championships this year.
2. Valentin Nikotin pursued an interesting strategy. He completed the entire competition in just over 7 minutes, less than half that of almost all players. His % correct was "only" 86.2% (as compared to, say, that of Siim Kask with 96.6%, who placed just after him at 4th), which was enough to propel him to third place.
3. Vincent Malgrat participated in his first playoff, and broke into the top ten. Nice work, Vincent!
We have upgraded the Winners page to show you not only the rankings and results of all playoff participants (click on the All Playoff Prizes and Rankings button), but also make it easy for you to compare the players' performance in the playoff with that of the quarter.
Congratulations to everyone who played in the playoff. I hope you found it entertaining, challenging and educational.
