|Jun-04-16|| ||lostemperor: Great performance of Mamedyarov in Shamkir winning the tournament with two wins vs the then leaders Caruana and Giri! Then winning the tie-breaker against Caruana!|
<Suenteus po 147> is back in the predicition contest! Winning all three rankers! Another good result for <Golden Executive> and <WinKing> winning Silver, as does <YouRang> in the Pair Bettings with his first medal this year (if I remember correctly). A neat Bronze for <Penguincw> here also!
|Jun-04-16|| ||lostemperor: I will update the Hall of Fame and the annual standings next week. Next projected tournament is Sinquefield Cup August 5 https://saintlouischessclub.org/civ.... I hope to be here and not on holidays. If the latter, you can post your predictions though I might be late with the results.|
|Jun-04-16|| ||YouRang: Thanks <lostemperor>!|
Congrats to <Suenteus po 147>. Geez, three jackpot predictions!
|Jun-04-16|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: Congratulations to <suenteus po 147>, and thanks to <lostemperor> for managing the contest!|
|Jun-04-16|| ||Penguincw: Wow, last update I was last in Betting Ranker, and here I won a last round jackpot to steal the bronze. I'll take it!|
Congrats to <suenteus po 147> for winning the triple crown. I believe he becomes the 9th user to do so, after <positionalgenius>, <Where is my mind>, <chessmoron>, <SloVice>, <cromat>, <Penguincw>, <WannaBe> and <OhioChessFan>. Congrats to all the other miedalists as well.
Weird to see Sinquefield so early this year, and also can't believe Dortmund and Bilbao cross over, but thanks for hosting <lostemperor>, see you then.
|Jun-04-16|| ||WannaBe: Well, there you have it, <suenteus po 147> got the Triple Crown!! Big congratulations.|
And I ended up with pie and seltzer water in my face and the Triple Clown!!
Thank you <lostemperor> for doing this tournament.
|Jun-04-16|| ||Golden Executive: Thank you <lostemperor> for hosting and running the contest! Norway and now Gashimov Memorial have been pretty exciting.|
Congratulations to <WinKing>, <YouRang>, <Penguincw> and especially to <suenteus po 147> on winning the coveted Triple-Crown!
See you guys next time.
|Jun-04-16|| ||WinKing: Thanks <lostemperor> for running & hosting a great contest with a great finish!|
Congratulations to all of the medal winners! A fine performance turned in by
<suenteus po 147> winning the coveted 'Triple Crown'. Way to go!
|Jun-05-16|| ||OhioChessFan: I don't know if I'm happy or sad that <Wannabe> participated. He stole a Triple Clown from me.|
Anyway, thanks Yoda.
|Jun-05-16|| ||WannaBe: <OhioChessFan>
Looking back at my "predictions":
<<WannaBe: 1. Karjakin
It wasn't like I intentionally strived for the TC award. Maybe I should have... =)
Terribly disappointment performance by Radjabov and Hou, who I thought would really do better than +0 -4 =5. She is the world defending champ, for crissakes.
Should have anticipated that Karjakin wouldn't show too much, lest Carlsen gets a whiff of his home brews.
Anyway... Next tournament. I'm gonna buy a new Ouija board. Obviously the one I have is broken.
|Jun-06-16|| ||lostemperor: Thanks all! Next tournament projected is Sinquefield Cup August 4, now open. Get your Ouija boards and Chrystal balls ready :p|
|Jun-06-16|| ||WannaBe: Wooooo, Topa <AND> Kramnik. =))|
|Jun-06-16|| ||WinKing: You never added <Keyser Soze> to your Hall of Fame from the last contest(Norway 2016).|
|Jun-07-16|| ||WinKing: Did you add any of the gold medals from Norway <lostemperor>? I have a different count than what you show.|
|Jun-10-16|| ||lostemperor: Yes <WinKing> I have not updated Norway yet as the Gashimov memorial. I have now however! Rest me to make the 2016 standings..|
|Jun-11-16|| ||WinKing: Thanks <lostemperor>.|
|Jun-20-16|| ||lostemperor: Meanwhile many of the players of August Sinquefield Cup are struggling it out in two rapids and blitz tournaments in France and Belgium! The France combined tournament was won by Nakamura and the Belgium part is ip to its last day today with Carlsen leading by (just) 1 point...|
