I calculate relative strength of sections at all tournaments where I get results, and I can determine the relative strength to which the section performed, compared to all other sections in the division. At the World Cup, since the players on the sections changed so much I could calculate the relative strength of the section when that particular individual was playing.
For each combination of players on a section, I calculated how much that section scored compared to all the sections they played against. Then I calculated what each player’s performance number should be to make it as close to the way they performed as possible. I used ’0′ as the standard, so the player(s) who had the lowest performance numbers were considered 0, then all other players were rated in comparison to them. Since the men only played the men and the women only played the women, I calculated them separately. The men’s numbers have no relation to the women’s numbers and vice-versa.
Throughout all the games of the tournament, when the following players played, their sections performed as if the player’s rating was:
