Explanation of Charts

Each contestant's score on each puzzle was based on the number of correct words, plus a bonus if the puzzle was solved with no mistakes, plus another bonus for speedy solving.

Below is one chart for each of the 7 puzzles at the 2007 Tournament.

Each chart shows:

  1. The graph shows how many entrants got each score.
  2. The scores are along the bottom, and the number achieving the score is on the right side.
  3. The colors indicate skill division (A, B, and others). The top experts are in the "A" division.
  4. For example, on puzzle #1, the right-most bar scored the highest. Nearly all of those were in the "A" division.

Thanks to Mel Rosen for preparing these analyses!
