So a 52 would be rated at 979.5627 (rounded to 980). So your field B would be vastly more likely to average ~55 than 52. (actually 54.89301424356).
Can you explain the 2 tournaments played 2 weeks apart, same exact layout and conditions, basically. Am vs pro

Azalea Am
R1-R4 Score of 60
Average player rating 895, average propigator rating 904
977 980 974 982 (average for a 60, 978)

Azalea Open
R1-R4 Score of 60
Average player rating 963, average propigator rating 963
989 988 994 993 (average for a 60, 991) (13 pts higher)

How is this not mostly because of the higher rated players in the open tournament padding the ratings of the rounds.
