I dont know if I can explain it to your satisfaction but, I do know that the tournament screen tends to run slow. I dont know if its just my computer, or if this is happening to everyone, but the tourney screen freezes up a lot. And the more people who play the tournament, the wider the distribution of the prizes.

So my guess is that it showed you won 12 diamonds, and then a bunch more players entered the tourney and scored higher than you. So that bumped you down to 10.

Sometime between the time you looked at it, and the time the tournament ended, the screen probably froze, and had to catch up and you missed it.

Am I making any sense? The tourney has a certain number of diamonds to give away. Then based on your score, you get a percentage of that total number.

Someone else who's better at Statistics than I could probably explain it better.

That makes sense to me April. Does it to you bigflipper (love the name!).

I just looked at 104th place and on my game it does say 10 diamonds awarded.

It's happened to me too, I think it is as April says, by the time all the prizes are calculated it can decrease or increase your diamonds by one or two, I've also had one or two more than it said I should.
