      Old bonuses - (-1620 / 8-2019)
      Minimum 8th result (+563)

      Game Results 8/2019:

      (+1170) , (+720)

      7663-1620-563+1170+720=7370
      The minimum 8th result (563) is replaced by a higher (720)

      I'm a fan of Kanak, but why is he ranked 22? His results aren't nearly good enough for him to be ranked this high.

      The whole ranking system is kind of a scam. If you play in a weak region, you get a huge boost in your world ranking. Kanak places well in two Pan Am events and then gets a world cup invite because of this. If you calculate those points, Kanak is already ranked 43 in the world or so with 5 more events to score points in. He then gets a lot of points for playing in the world championships putting him close to the top 30 when the USA team really didn't do that well. In the remaining 4 events he doesn't score a lot of points.

      http://results.ittf.link/index.php?o..._category=Open

      The above isn't Kanak's fault. It is just the way the system is set up. He is playing by the rules to get his #22 ranking. I think the ITTF wants to prop up players from each region and people who dominate their region alone can score enough points to be in the top 60-70 when in reality they would probably be ranked lower. Dominate your region, score lots of points in regional events, get an invite to the world cup get more points and then get even more points at the world championships. Maybe their logic is that if each region has a hero, more people from that region will be inspired to play.

      This month he has almost 1000 points more then previous but he only scored 180 points in Czech open.
      I really do not get the idea of this ranking.

      The Pan Am Games technically started in July, but table tennis at the Games started in August.

      I don't understand. Why is it a surprise he moved from #13 to #10? He just won the 2019 Czech World Tour.

      I did not think the points were enough to move 3 ranks up initially.
