  amadeus: --- Candidates Minimatches ---

I have done a small combinatory effort this morning, and the results for the 1st round were

40-43% best rated player
29-31% draw
27-29% worst rated player

PS: I have used the live rating, this table http://www.chessbase.com/images2/20... (which is more conservative than Elo's score prediction*), and I estimated the draw % as around 60% -- actually, 0.64 - |rat.diff|/800, if rat.diff<35, then 35 [nothing special, it's just a rough estimate]

(*) had I used Elo, and a few assumptions, the results for the 1st round would be:

46-52% best rated player
28-30% draw
20-24% worst rated player

Dec-31-10  Everett: <amadeus> you seem to be missing some white losses for Kasparov in your game collection.

  Honza Cervenka: Call for Aneta’s voters! Vote early, vote often!

Dear chess friends! Great final poll of regional daily KLADENSKY DENIK for the most sympathetic baby of year 2010 has started and my little girl needs your support again. The poll is running since January 22, 12.00 CET, till February 5, 12.00 CET. The rules are the same as the last time, i.e. it is possible to send one vote after every 60 minutes from one IP address. If you want to support Aneta, just click on http://kladensky.denik.cz/miminka/m..., flag the name <Aneta Červenková> in the grey box on the right side of the screen and hit the <hlasovat> button below. If you see a notification “Děkujeme za váš hlas” (Thank you for your vote) after that, then you have voted successfully. And if you see a notification “Došlo k opakovanému hlasování” (Repeated voting has occurred), then you should try to vote a bit later again....:-D

See my chessforum for more informations and thanks for your support!

Another great work with article "Match Ponomariov!"! But there is one mistake. In 2001 in Lasanne Pono loses his first match against Volokitin 0.5-1.5, not won.

In 1925 he won both games against Otto Brech from Aachen. In 1927 he had +1, =1 against Ripke. And in 1928 he had +1, -1 with Alfred Van Nuess.
