Nov-25-17  SueursFroides: IM Praggnanandhaa was close to win the world junior championship and the GM title, I think he will remember his draw against Lomasov in a winning position. But first GM norm for him.

  LucB: Something is puzzling me about this tournament..

It was an 11-round Swiss from what I can gather, and so my question is: why 11 rounds? Why not an even number of rounds?

Nov-26-17  stst: <...11-round Swiss...>

11, odd and prime, pure and elegant, not too large, not too small, reducing chances of draws etc. etc.

I thought this was the official results, and e-mailed Chess-Results about the missing games from round 11 (they have all games from rounds 1-10). I got this reply: "sorry, but I am not involved in the World Junior Championship. Please contact the organiser".

And so I did. I just wrote to the organizer, using the form at

<Dear organizer, for PGNs and results, your official page on the event refers to "Chess-Results" (only), but they are missing the games from round 11 (they have all games from rounds 1-10). Also I got the message from Chess-Results that "sorry, but I am not involved in the World Junior Championship. Please contact the organiser".

I don't understand this. Where exactly to find the official results? And the games? I sincerely thought it was Chess-Results who had it.>

I'll keep you updated on the answer (if any). It's also very possible I've missed a point or three here.


Regarding the World Junior Championship (2016), the claim-to-be "official page" at has no results or games (AFAICS). Then has the results, but no games. Perhaps they were not involved there either?

Perhaps a solution for CG could be to call it World Juniors Open (2016) and strip Xiong of his title.

  Tabanus: Congrats Prince Aryan. Well done.

The "official site" has not proclaimed you the winner yet though. Except via Chess-Results, who says they have nothing to do with it.
