  dakgootje: 246th place?

By the time they've worked out all discrepancies, you'll make top-10! :)

Speaking of which guys:

Don't want to rush you, but the 20th the Gashimov memorial starts with a line-up of <Carlsen, Caruana, Nakamura, Karjakin, Mamedyarov, Radjabov>. So it'd be nice to start the new leg with that tournament if possible.

  technical draw: Next game I'm going for that double rook.
Apr-21-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  dakgootje: I'd settle for a single rook ;)

But I'll probably go all or nothing next leg - so I'll probably go broke, and perhaps win the leg, with little in between :P

By the way, the Gashimov is underway - second round was today, so perhaps it's time to start the new leg :)

When does the next round of fake betting begin? I thought it would start with the Gashimov Memorial (2014).

Thanks

  offramp: Can I once again put in a recommendation that the word chessbucks be changed to tals?

I think it's a short word that <looks> like it might be a currency. I think Tal was a bit if a gambler; also the word <dollar> comes from the word <thal>/<thaler>.

Apr-23-14  SugarDom: What's wrong with chess bucks?
