  Tabanus: Blitz, not Rapid.
Nov-12-17  waustad: In the overrall between So and LDP, So did much worse with more time and did much better the faster it got. I don't know if there was any weighting, but if not, So came back to score +1, assuming that I counted correctly and that Chessbomb has correct results.
Nov-21-17  lost in space: Wow, Caruana won against Grischuk +10-3=7.

Thought, it would end vice versa
