Default Love these lists - but why does AO only rate 0.5 from 83 through 89?

I understand it was a relatively weak tournament between 1972 to 1982 inclusive. But from 1983 through to 1989 it had a strong field (I know there was no AO in 1986).

I certainly don't see a lot of difference from 1989 to 1990 - the latter year you give it 1.0.

Curious as to your reasoning.

Thanks
