Not to sound dumb, but what exactly is a Grand Finale?
If you want a precis, a Grand Finale is a special tournament at the end of a series of tournaments, rewarding the winners of the subsidiary tournaments. The series must be at least 8 tourneys long, and there is no organizer's medal or winners' medal, although there is a GA medal for the winner.
Pretty much true.
close to true.
some GF's have medals for the winner and no GA medal. some have no medal for the winner but a GA is given.
in some cases the GF is added to the database for the host so it is included in the overall tally of completed tournaments. whether a medal is awarded or not is a moot point as most hosts have already maxed out their 30.
in some cases the GF win is added to the database for the winner, for others it is not. i haven't bothered to check if that corresponds to the awarding of medals mentioned above but i think it did.
