|Aug-15-16|| ||lostemperor: I decide to rightfully award <Golden Executive> with a Gold medal from the Norway Chess predictions earlier this year. He would have won the gold in the pair betting ranker if not <offramp> unfortunate had the same predictions copied. As contest manager I see is as my duty to correct that in all fairness and award <Golden Executive> what he deserves particulary since he made a unofficial complaint already since this was second tournament it happened.|

Congrats to all the other medalists, hope to see you next time (LCC?).
Oh, and congrats to <Golden Executive> for winning a gold medal. When I saw that announcement by <lostemperor>, I was confused at what he meant by that, but I looked in the archives and figured out what happened. You made the right call IMHO. :)
|Sep-27-16|| ||WinKing: I am not sure which contest you are doing next <lostemperor> but here are the pairings for the London Chess Classic 2016 coming up in December. It is nice when you don't have to wait till the day of the tournament to get the pairings. Very strong line-up of players as usual. |
