Welcome to Round Two of A Game of Four Categories. After collecting 300 entries, I have broken the total down into 15 qualifying rounds, each having 20 works. For each round, the 4 works having the highest scores will advance to the Semi-Finals.

Rules of the Road:

1. You may vote once daily.

2. When you vote, you will have 10 points to distribute as you wish except that no work may receive more than 6 points.

3. The Half-Time Adjustment is in play. With the first work to garner 50 points, the 8 with the lowest scores will be eliminated from the game; this number could rise if there are ties toward the bottom of the board.

4. Qualifying Round Two ends with the first work to reach 100 points.

Do people just assume that Beethoven can take care of himself (essentially championing the underdog) or is there genuine lack of affection for the compositions? This is not the first time Beethoven has languished, sometimes badly, in a game.
Could be that there are no hard-core Beethoven fans who are regular game players. There are at least 2 regulars who are hard-core for Brahms.

Ummmm "For each round, the 4 works having the highest scores will advance to the Semi-Finals." I don't know if something's changed, but I count 5 works advancing to semis
Two works were tied for 4th place. I don't do tie-breakers, so 5 advance to Semi-Finals. I've been doing it this way for years, but I guess you never noticed.
