Relative Scores for the Open Class Contenders

"Contenders" are those contestants for whom a win in 2017 would result in a rating of 90 or higher, which is basically required for consideration; that is they are "mathematically" in the running.


These are the relative scores ( contestant's score divided by the winning score ) that a contestant would have to achieve in order to tie one of the other contenders in 2017.
