Results of the 2019 National Memory Championship – Detailed scoreboard

The vast majority of what is worth knowing about those results is already told on this page. Here we reproduce exactly the same scoreboard, but we also add the numbers of Championship Points that each participant has earned for each event. Although calculating who won a particular discipline is a simple endeavor, assigning a numerical value to the combined results of 6 very different disciplines is much more complex.

About this scoreboard:

  • The images and names events are the same for everyone. For everything else, the scoring rules and/or conditions are harsher for competitors in the Advanced section.
  • The first number in each box shows the raw official result. The second number after a slash sometimes shows the attempted score. With words, for example, a result of 62/64 means that 64 words were written down and 62 of those were corrects. The attempted score has no effect on the final ranking and we only note this to satisfy our curiosity. In this case, we mistakenly didn’t note it for many competitors in the Regular section. In the advanced section, penalties for errors can sometimes be severe, especially for numbers and words. Therefore, do not assume that a score of 200/300 necessarily means that the participant made 100 mistakes.
  • The numbers in brackets show the number of championship points (CP) obtained for each event. The CPs are added in the last column to calculate the final ranking of each participant. In the advanced section, only the 5 best results out of 6 are taken into consideration. In the regular section, the numbers and cards challenges are completely optional and only the 4 best results are taken into account. If there is no number in brackets in a box, it means that the results obtained for this test were not high enough to count among the participant’s top 4 or 5.
  • When you see +25 or +50 or more next to a score, it means that the participants were awarded some bonus points. That can be done either by obtaining a top 3 result among your peers in a particular discipline; by memorizing at least 60, 100 or 150 digits; 20, 40 or 52 cards; or by braking a national record.
  • The participants are listed in first name alphabetical order.
