I am looking for a word that would describe a player who is, for example, in a TOP 10 chart and is eligible for a prize. That means that if he would suddenly lose his/her position and get ranked 11 or lower, he/she could no longer be called that way, since that player is not one of the victors.

I'll give a small example of use:

My games: 41 <-- this is total amount of games the player takes part in
Games where I hold a top rank: 11 <-- this is where need help

I would like this to be explained in 1-2 words and I was wondering if such word already exists.
If at all possible I would like to use international or simple english.

  • @Josh61 more of a word or couple of words to say "games where I'm the top player". Hopefully it makes sense, English isn't my first language. Nov 19, 2014 at 8:00
  • Stars of basket, football, car racing etc.

  • @Josh61 so writing "Starts of games" would mean games where the player is one of the victors? If so, please put that as an answer. Nov 19, 2014 at 8:10
  • Prize Candidate or Award Candidate

"Top Ranked" while not one word would usually suffice.

adjective:
considered to be the best or among the best   ⇒ "the top-ranked amateur in France"

  • You know, "means that if he would suddenly lose his/her position and get ranked 11 or lower, he/she could no longer be called that way"

"Games that I'm highly ranked in" comes to mind.

  • Sorry, but that's very long. I wanted that sentence in one word :) Nov 19, 2014 at 8:26

The word "finalist" means someone who has survived earlier challenges and is now competing for the top prize. In your example, there would be ten finalists.

I think it is

"Top-ten player."

it's literally that simple.

"means that if he would suddenly lose his/her position and get ranked 11 or lower, he/she could no longer be called that way" ... so, top-ten player. It's that simple.
