Eindhoven World Cup 2011 Men’s Qualification Results

The men’s qualification round was made up of two problem sets–A and B–with five problems to each set.  It quickly became clear that men’s set A was a bit more doable than set B, as Daniel Woods was the first place qualifier from set B with 5 tops in 6 tries and the top 3 qualifiers in set A all flashed all their problems (5 tops in 5 tries) and the next 3 competitors tied Daniel’s 5 tops/6 tries.  Luckily the way they combine results from both sets allows for one set to be more difficult without unfairly punishing the climbers in that set.  The way it works is that, regardless of their scores, the top 10 competitors from each set make semis.  This means that if, for example, the 11th place guy in the easier set A gets 5 tops in 9 tries, and the 4th place guy in the more difficult set B also gets 5 tops in 9 tries, the set B guy will make semis and the set A guy will not.  SO, even though Daniel got 5/6 and the top 3 competitors from set A got 5/5, Daniel will go into semis ranked in a tie for first with those 3 1st place set A qualifiers.  Confused?  Here are the top 20 male qualifiers in order with their set #s:

1. Francois Kaiser (FRA) A
