Note 1: Looking at the results below, you may wonder how two players can achieve the same % correct and yet the player with the slower time is ranked ahead of a person with a faster time. This can happen due to the fact that the % correct is cumulative across all quizzes in the competition, but you receive a higher score for correct answers on advanced quizzes, compared to intermediate and beginner quizzes.

Note 2:  Below the table of results for this playoff, you will find another list showing the playoff history of each of these players.
