Can anyone decode the cryptic acronyms on the NAQT website relating to tournament results? i.e. "P" "TU" "I" "PPTH" and "PP"
thanks

Welcome to the boards!

P=number of 15 point powers
TU=number 10 point tossups
I=number of -5 point interrupts (a.k.a. negs)
PPTH=Points per tossup heard
PP - if you mean P%, that is the percentage of correct answers that were powers (i.e. P/(P+TU))
PP20TH - points per 20 tossups heard (effectively points per game)
