  Penguincw: < Mr. Curmudgeonly One: How's the tiebreak ? >

According to the official site, the tiebreakers are:

1) Head to head (only applies if they played each other)

2) Buchholz tiebreaker

3) Some other buchholz tiebreaker

4) More games with black

5) More wins

Oct-18-14  jphamlore: http://www.worldjuniorchess2014.com...

Wei Yi White vs Duda Black from what I can tell for the final round 13.

It comes down to a simple decision after Wei Yi opens 1. e4: if Duda replies 1. .. e5 he will have a chance to win the event, if Duda instead replies 1. .. c5, Wei Yi will probably win the game and have a good chance to win the event.

As young players holding all the advantages of Internet chess databases should know much about their opponents, I have no doubt Duda, who has played the Ruy Lopez as Black in the past and has played 1. .. e5 in this event, will choose 1. .. c5 because young players today have the worst training of any generation since the early days of the Soviet Union. They just don't have the discipline to win events. That is why the likes of Magnus Carlsen and Fabiano Caruana are going to dominate them for the next decade plus.

  PhilFeeley: Once again Jorge Cori is low on CG.com's list, while on the official site, he is the first on tie-break of those with 8.
Oct-19-14  jphamlore: Okay I may have been wrong about Duda's chances if he replied 1. .. e5, but little could I know he would choose to play a very tricky variation of the Two Knights; instead of defending with a Giuoco Piano which I believe Wei Yi has never defeated as White.

Duda will I think have to play at the level of a 2800 to save what appears from computer analysis to be an even position.

Oct-19-14  siggemannen: <PhilFeeley> Chessgames doesn't support tie breaks in their tourney tables. At least yesterday they had the games even before chess-results posted the results :)
Oct-19-14  NightKnight: Duda has to win also, thatīs why he went for the objectively worse 5...Nd4. Only winner will realistically win the tournament. Quite interesting two knights defense, not a frequent sight for sure.
Oct-19-14  jphamlore: Looks very promising for Lu Shanglei to win this event.
Oct-19-14  jphamlore: <NightKnight: Duda has to win also, thatīs why he went for the objectively worse 5...Nd4. Only winner will realistically win the tournament. Quite interesting two knights defense, not a frequent sight for sure.>

Wei Yi just declined a chance for a 3 move repetition draw, so there's apparently more game left.

Oct-19-14  jphamlore: What a summer / fall for Lu Shanglei. He's about to win the event. China is starting to have so many high quality players that they could field two equal strength teams in the Olympiad and have chances at putting both in the top 3.

  soldal: 1. Lu 10
2-4. Wei, Fedoseev, Duda 9.5
5-8. Dragun, Vidit, Karthikeyan, Narayanan 9

If there's a winner in the game Bai-Ghosh, he too will end on 9 points.

Karthikeyan and Ghosh are missing in cg.com's list above, due to a missing game (round 2) and a wrong result (round 12) respectively.

  PhilFeeley: Imagine being the last guy: Uapingene Uatiavi Jossy from Namibia. Lost every game. The fact that he played every game (except one - a 1-point bye in round 3) is amazing.

Sad when an African country can send a player, but only 2 came from the Americas (Corie & Fisher), few from Europe and none from Canada.

Then again, maybe Uapingene was sponsored by FIDE. Who knows.

  alexmagnus: <Imagine being the last guy: Uapingene Uatiavi Jossy from Namibia. >

When I read this, my first thought was... what, not the 1070-rated Mallela? Looked up, indeed Mallela won against Uapingene (and drew one more game btw).

OK, I thought, I'll look up the game...

Upapingene (White) to move and is clearly winning with 48. Qxe3, being three pawns up. What happened? 48. Kxe3? Qe1+ 49. Kf3 Qg3+ 50. Ke4?? Qd3+, and mate a couple of moves later.

But credits to Mallela (who is, as I already said, rated 1070 and is 8 years young) for seeing the mating net in a hopeless position. I wonder when exactly he saw it.

  kevinatcausa: I believe Lu would have won on tiebreaks even with a draw in his last game. He was +1 against the 9.5 pointers.

  HeMateMe: Robson went where the money is, vegas. No money at the junior championships.
Oct-21-14  zakkzheng: I don't blame him for that. :)
Aug-10-15  fisayo123: This is sort of late, but if Wei Yi had won, would he have been the youngest winner of this illustrious event ever?
