|Apr-29-16|| ||OhioChessFan: ** Final Recap **
An exciting final round capped off a great tournament. All the Rankers were won by current Hall of Fame members. <Karposian> staggered across the finish line to hold on to the Gold in Moves Ranker, after his amazing 3 perfects/30 point round. <WinKing> made a late surge to pass <lostemperor> for the Bonus Ranker gold, and took home the Moves+Bonus Ranker gold as well. <Penguincw> took home the #1 Ranker gold. <Karposian> added a bronze to his gold. <WinKing> had a bronze to go with his 2 golds. <Penguincw> had a silver to go with his gold. Other medalists were <Switch> with three silvers after a furious last round rally, <lostemperor> with a silver and bronze, and <OhioChessFan> with a bronze.
Many thanks to <chessmoron> for running the show, <GE> for stepping in with scoring, <Switch> for watching the starting line, and <WinKing> for keeping an eye on scoring issues. There are a number of strong tournaments coming up, so I hope we can prevail upon <cm> to run some/all of them. Thanks for playing!

|Apr-29-16|| ||WinKing: Thanks <chessmoron> for another heart pounding contest! Thanks <OCF> for hosting & providing commentary!|
Congratulations to all of the medal winners! Special grats to <Karposian> & <Penguincw> on each grabbing a gold. Not sure who won the other two...some schmuck. ;)
What I'd really like to know is how did <Karposian> get ahead of <Penguincw> in the ♔ <WINNER'S CORNER> ♔? Oops...did I say that?

Well, that schmuck is pretty good :) Congrats on your two golds, <WinKing>. You scored 117 pts in total, a great result.
<What I'd really like to know is how did <Karposian> get ahead of <Penguincw> in the ♔ <WINNER'S CORNER> ♔? Oops...did I say that?>
Heh, heh. I'm sure that <Penguincw> will have noticed it!
Thanks <OCF> (brilliant recaps as usual) and <chessmoron> for another great contest. My only regret is that once again I failed to surpass my no.1 "frenemy", <the Pengster>, in the HOF.
Next time...next time...
|Apr-29-16|| ||WinKing: I just want to give <GE> a 'SHOUT OUT' thanks for filling in for <chessmoron>. :)|
|Apr-29-16|| ||Penguincw: Thank you <chessmoron> for running this contest. Thanks to <OhioChessFan> for allowing your forum to be the host for this contest, and for the colour commentary. Also thanks to <Golden Executive> for helping out despite having to run another contest.|
Congrats to <WinKing> for winning his 4th double crown (only <cm>, 5, has more). However, no one has more than his <7> multi-crowns. Also congrats to <Penguincw> (that would be me) and <Karposian> for both winning a gold medal, both using 2 different methods to victory: one had a <huge> round, the other put on their rally cap.
Congrats to the other medalists too.
<chessmoron>, is the Gashimov Memorial next?
|Apr-29-16|| ||Karposian: <Penguincw: Also congrats to <Penguincw> (that would be me)>|
He's always such a humble guy, isn't he?
|Apr-29-16|| ||juan31: Thank you <chessmoron, OhioChessFan and Golden Executive>|
|Apr-30-16|| ||wordfunph: Thank you <chessmoron, OhioChessFan and Golden Executive>.|
gratz to all victors!

|Apr-30-16|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: Thanks to <chessmoron>, <OhioChessFan> and <Golden Executive>, and congratulations to the winners and medalists!|
I've won too many silver medals lately... <WinKing> isn't leaving much gold for the rest of us.
|Apr-30-16|| ||lostemperor: Thanks contest manager <chessmoron> sponsor <OhioChessFan> and all assists. Congratulations all medal winners, <Karposian> <WinKing> and <Penguincw> for winning Gold. <Win-King> beating <lost-emperor> by one point in the Bonus Ranker. It has been a very competitive contest again!|
|Apr-30-16|| ||Golden Executive: Thanks <chessmoron> for running this pretty exciting contest and <OCF> for hosting and commenting with such creativity!.|
Congratulations to all the medal winners, especially to <WinKing> on his 2nd consecutive double crown!.
|May-01-16|| ||whiteshark: Thanks, like all previous speakers said.|
|May-01-16|| ||OhioChessFan: I hope <The Last Straw> brings back his ELO Prediction Contest.|
|May-02-16|| ||Big Pawn: <optimal play> shared this link in my forum: http://spectator.org/articles/35455...|
Really good reading there. The author talks about the historicity of Muhammad and how it's being scrutinized by modern scholars, even bringing into question whether Muhammad really existed.
In my opinion, a great article. Perhaps you can check it out when you have the chance. It's a long article so you'll need to have a bit of time.

|May-17-16|| ||Big Pawn: Hello <ohio>, I posted this in my forum where <optimal play> and I are having our regular religious discussions, but you haven't dropped back by so I thought I'd share it here as well.|
This is a terrific lecture (1 hour 43 minutes) from one of my favorite Christian apologists, John Lennox (PhD - math & science at Oxford - renown speaker) entitled "Has Science Buried God".
I think you'll not only enjoy his style, but you'll also enjoy the content. My hope is that you'll like it so much that you'll seek out his other lectures and debates (he mopped up Dawkins when Dawkins refused to debate Craig) and listen to every single one of them as I have.
|May-19-16|| ||OhioChessFan: When I get some time I'll have a look. Dawkins is a buffoon and I am always surprised that the people on his side are so impressed with him.|
|May-20-16|| ||Big Pawn: <ohio>, although Lennox did mop the floor with Dawkins, this is not that debate. This is a lecture that Lennox gave. Yes, you'll need time because it's long, but in my opinion it's very interesting and worthwhile. |
Let me know what you think when you finally get the chance.
|May-21-16|| ||chessmoron: <OhioChessFan> Prepare the forum for Gashimov 2016, starting at May 26th.|
|May-21-16|| ||Penguincw: Alright, good to hear <chessmoron>.|
BTW: Nice avatar. I see you're a Premium Member now. The contest will still be hosted here though, right? :)
