  sydbarrett: Um fred i erased that "Duda Day" post 7 hours ago. Are you referring to the message I posted for 20 minutes and erased, or did you come up with "Duda Day" yourself in a bit of unexpected ESP? Either way this is eerie to me

  Penguincw: This post is coming a few days late, but I'd like to congratulate <Golden Executive> for joining me as the only other user to have finished in the top 10 of a "preseason leg" 4 times.

(yes it is sad if you're like me and most of your accomplishments are on things that don't matter, but oh well)

  FSR: <syd> I posted the link to that video in response to the comments by you and <Sneaky> about Duda's victory. I had no idea that you had previously linked to the same video. Every time I see "Duda" I think of the "doo da, doo da" song, so it was inevitable I would link to the video sometime.

  sydbarrett: ok lol
It was either that or the Police song. The chesstown races song is a better fit and I guess you agree.

  morfishine: Well, the Camptown ladies sing this song Duda, Duda
Jul-16-18  DerDiemer: Hoping for at least 2 result games tomorrow. So hope Duda is one of them :-). Sees the higher the Elo average is for an tournament, the more draw games there are.
Jul-16-18  DerDiemer: Dortmund Performance ratings after 2 rounds (Player Elo in brackets)

1. Duda:2857 (2737)
2. Meier:2758 (2628)
3. Kovalev:2747 (2655)
4. Nepomniachtchi:2719 (2757)
5. Wojtaszek:2710 (2733)
6. Kramnik:2703 (2792)
7. Giri:2693 (2782)
8. Nisipeanu:2572 (2672)

Only if you win.

  sydbarrett: It was shaping up to be a bad day, but a Kovalev win (vs draw) made roughly a $1500 gain for me. Sneaky your faith in Duda is starting to impress me. Maybe he is your spirit animal.

  sydbarrett: i had 10 on that bet morf. so you had most of the rest. now i know
Jul-17-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  wallytherhino: <morfishine> my goal for this leg is to break the single season (non championship) leg CB total. That is going to require some calculated risk and some luck here and there.
Jul-18-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: <wallytherhino> Good Luck! My goal is to finish in the top-10 so I can hear the congratulatory remark "And congratulations to those of you who finished in the top-10" lol

<sydbarrett> Great username! Floyd has been my favorite band since 1976

  wallytherhino: <morfishine> another top-10 with no record is not a bad result by any stretch.

  sydbarrett: I've been a Floyd fan since I was an Embryo (buying DSOTM at age 13 as one of my first CDs I think was my first step into adulthood. Changed my outlook on life. Either that or hearing Nevermind a year before that.)

Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: <sydbarrett> I have listened to virtually every Floyd album at least once (even Atom Heart Mother!). Of course, the Moon, Wishing & the Wall reign supreme, but my favorite Floyd album is 'Animals'

When I purchased the CD off Ebay from a murky Russian vendor, it arrived as described with a few unreleased bonus tunes included that absolutely stunk (no wonder these weren't released LOL)

Jul-18-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  sydbarrett: I've made it a point to know about every obscure Floyd track since high school, so I wonder what these extra tracks you mention are? I've listened to every recorded album many times over (and bootlegs when I ran out of new studio material to mine), and never found anything less than "interesting," that's how fanatic I am. Animals is angry in a "wonderful" way--- great when you feel wronged. ;-) Also, they finally released lots of vault material the past few years, and I was surprised by how much more there was hidden all these years.

  morfishine: <sydbarrett> When I get home, I will rustle up this CD and see if there are titles attached to the additional tracks. From what I recall there were 5-6 tracks adding ~25 minutes of "music"

  sydbarrett: I found the underrated bet for today --- "W-D-B" --- and I put 100. It looks like the wheel's gonna land there.

  WinKing: On the 'Pick 4' bet for round 6 it would have helped if you would have listed the games in the description box. Love the bet though. :)

  Annie K.: <WinKing> good idea, I'm missing them too. I'll add them. :)
