Congrats to <Switch> and all the other medalists, thanks to <lostemperor> for hosting, and see you soon. (perhaps Norway in June)
|Jan-29-17|| ||lostemperor: Congratulations to all who finished above me (who is everybody)! I took a gamble especially on Nepomniatchi (by putting him second) but it did not work out! :o |
Fortunately for me <tuttifrutty> took very much risks although it almost paid off for him with several potential JACKPOTS, last of which after 11 rounds when WEI YI was above CARLSEN ;)
|Jan-29-17|| ||lostemperor: I forgot to post the "<missed prediction's chances>" list in this exciting, fighting and upsetting tournament in the positive sense of the word in the standings!|
