  thegoodanarchist: Batista has no decisive games after 6 rounds.

I guess no one was Cruizin' for a Bruzon...

May-21-17  stst: This is like breeders cup... a very slight hope any of these will be "brought" up to the WC calibre

sorry, can ignore this one

May-22-17  morfishine: <stst: This is like breeders cup... a very slight hope any of these will be "brought" up to the WC calibre sorry, can ignore this one> Sorry, I can't ignore this one, not when there are players with names like 'Baryshpolets'

  PhilFeeley: Wow. A decisive rate of 50%! Unheard of in tournament play, usually.

  HeMateMe: All the games at the local YMCA championship were decisive. And, we were fighting for prestige, not mere dollars!

  HeMateMe: Wow, that's a blast from the past! I've worked out at the McBurney Y. 23rd st. sure has changed in the last 20 years.

the indian chief was my favorite. Him, and Baby Spice.

  MissScarlett: It's possible that the American chess scene has become the front for a sophisticated immigration scam.
May-25-17  nok: Lucena and Columbus were contemporaries, that's what I call damning evidence.

It is nothing like a "breeder's cup". Most, except for Jeffery Xiong perhaps, are at an age where if they were going to be WC candidates they would have already done so. The field is made of "Regular" GM's, Baryshpolets, Ipatov etc, to a relatively "Strong" GM, Akobian.

Regardless, it was a good show of fighting chess with many interesting games.
