# How are the votes on curling shots determined?

During curling matches it is easy to check the percentage for each shot of for each player, but how are those values determined?

Each shots can be classified with the following values: 0% - 25% - 50% - 75% - 100%

Sometimes it is easy to determine the real value, but how in this case (see the picture):

• stone #15 the tem green would like to draw a point (closer than the yellow one). If the green stone is closer to the yellow it takes 100%, if it was farther it takes 0% (I believe so).

How is it possible to classificate this shot considering that is not possible to take a measure before the shot of #16?

• If something it is not clear you can write what part is not clear to edit the question. In my mind is so clear

• It appears you have given a rule (100% for shot rock, 0% for not shot rock). Are you asking if the rule is correct? Dec 11, 2017 at 6:49
• If you can't tell between 0 and 100, and there's no difference otherwise, you'd go with 50, surely.

• After the shot #16 you can ask for the measurment to check what stones is the closest to the center

• I didn't ask this question, but I'm very confused about what is being asked, and the answer. How do 3 or 4 points relate to 0%, 100% etc? Is the question about which stone is closer to the center? It says "closer to the yellow", but I think the stones are supposed to be close to the center, not each other? Jun 10, 2018 at 23:01
