Tournament director Adam Johnson has posted his “wacky graph” of this year’s Round Robin.  Each competitor is a line and the placings of all sixteen are shown through the rounds of the competition thus far.  Competitors do not know what line they are, though, which leads to lots of interesting (and often incorrect) guessing.  Here is the current “wacky graph”:
