MSO Pentamind Tournaments
Categories: Multievent Games
The Pentamind is the most prestigious event in the Mind Sports Olympiad. It was a mutli-discipline event created specifically for the MSO. Unlike the Decamentathlon which has 10 fixed events the 5 events of the Pentamind can be any five different events from one year. The Pentamind World Champion can be thought of as the Winner of the MSO and hence probably the best games player in the world.
The Pentamind scoring system is used to calculate the Amateur Olympiad and Amateur World Titles. Even for the Junior Pentamind all competitors are counted for the score.
Pentamind points are calculated by :
The number of players in the event – your position
The number of players in the event – 1
This is then multiplied by 100.
Positions for the Pentamind do not use tie-breaks but positions are split so that the average (mean) position is used!
