|Oct-24-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: Why do they call it the "Superfinals"?
I suppose because when it is over, it is super over. Thus making is super final.
|Oct-24-16|| ||et1: After eight rounds 13 decisive matches in the men's tournament and 33 in the women's ! Super GMs are masters of drawing and harder to beat ?|
|Oct-24-16|| ||john barleycorn: <et1: After eight rounds 13 decisive matches in the men's tournament and 33 in the women's ! Super GMs are masters of drawing and harder to beat ?>|
Let them challenge the girls to find out.
|Oct-24-16|| ||posoo: Anyone who is injoying DIS tormament is CRAZEY.|
Just lots of TUSSIANS making DRAIGHS. Coluding like always.
|Oct-24-16|| ||plang: call me crazy then|
|Oct-25-16|| ||Imran Iskandar: <<et1: After eight rounds 13 decisive matches in the men's tournament and 33 in the women's ! Super GMs are masters of drawing and harder to beat ?>|
john barleycorn: Let them challenge the girls to find out.>
I imagine if the boys and girls merged into a 24-player Superfinal there'd be a higher decisive rate than either tournament alone.
|Oct-26-16|| ||HeMateMe: what would Tal, Korchnoi and Kasparov say about all of these draws if it were a USSR final?|
|Oct-26-16|| ||perfidious: <Imran Iskandar....I imagine if the boys and girls merged into a 24-player Superfinal there'd be a higher decisive rate than either tournament alone.>|
Which would, of course, have the bonus effect of creating the heaven-sent opportunity for some posters to kvetch due to the 2700s beating the spots off the women.
|Oct-26-16|| ||iking: Russians are well educated in chess .. the result seems good ... no run away winner yet, decider tomorrow.|
|Oct-26-16|| ||et1: one game to go and 11 in 12 contenders can still make 50 percent of points - isn't this remarkable ?|
|Oct-26-16|| ||Pedro Fernandez: I named here two GMs who like me, i.e. V. Fedoseev (21) and G. Oparin (19). About the latter, I continue thinking that this GM has a lot of future. Yes, he lost vs Grischuk and Inarkiev, but I see in Oparin an aggressive and ambitious man. About Fedoseev, certainly he is not a surprise for anyone.|
|Oct-26-16|| ||HeMateMe: if 3 people tie for first here, what do they do?|
|Oct-26-16|| ||moronovich: <HeMateMe: if 3 people tie for first here, what do they do?>|
They play bullit chess.Deer Hunter style.
|Oct-26-16|| ||HeMateMe: the loser gets shot in the head by Saigon gamblers? Doesn't seem appropriate.|
|Oct-26-16|| ||Pedro Fernandez: Hey <John>, your sense of humor never will die! Greetings my dear British friend.|
|Oct-27-16|| ||abuzic: Final:
|Oct-27-16|| ||plang: 18 decisive games out of 66 is not that low|
|Oct-27-16|| ||whiteshark: <abuzic> as the rd 9 game Koka-Inar is not included yet, you have to add +.5 point to your table for both players.|
<plang> That's 27.3% It's not high either or is it? ;)
|Oct-27-16|| ||cplyakap: Riazantsev became 2016 Russia Champion!Congratz.|
|Oct-27-16|| ||CountryGirl: Glad Riazantsev won. He's a very talented and decent player.|
|Oct-27-16|| ||Open Defence: So Grischuk's second is first and Girschuk is second...|
|Oct-27-16|| ||plang: <whiteshark:
That's 27.3% It's not high either or is it? ;)>
No, it's not high - probably a bit below average.
|Oct-28-16|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: If you visit page 1, you will see that I *incorrectly* incorrectly (!) picked Riazantsev to win. That means I deserve zero credit because I thought I was wrong!|
|Oct-28-16|| ||HeMateMe: I picked Svidler to not repeat as champ. I thought he was off form.|
|Oct-28-16|| ||Beholder: <An Englishman: If you visit page 1, you will see that I *incorrectly* incorrectly (!) picked Riazantsev to win.>|
Yeah that deserves a full quote:
<Oct-15-16 An Englishman: Good Evening: Just for fun, I shall incorrectly pick Riazantsev to win. He won't, but he does play some entertaining chess: L Draskovic vs A Riazantsev, 2015.>
