and Hall of famers <Golden Executive> and <WannaBe> (7th Gold!) who won the Gold with yours truly <lostemperor> in the Absolute Ranker! The first two HOFers also won the second place in the SQUARE RANKER!|
Congratulations to <Aurora> won Gold in the PAIR BETTING RANKER! Followed by <lostemperor> and <WannaBe>.
<OhioChessFan> is still waiting for Gold but won again a Silver (in the SQUARE RANKER)!
|Sep-07-14|| ||OhioChessFan: A silver is much better than normal for me. Thanks for running the show Yoda.|
|Sep-07-14|| ||lostemperor: For completion here the full results (virtual):
(Only one medal, the highest, will come in the Hall of Fame :)
|Sep-07-14|| ||Penguincw: I believe you forgot to mention that I won the triple crown... that is the <losing> triple crown, to go along with a <losing> double crown, but of course, only one medal counts (j/k). ;)|
Jokes aside, special congratz to <juan31> who is having a career year. He has just achieved HOF status in <chessmoron>'s contest, then <YouRang>'s contest and now <here>. Congratz to the other medalists, and thank you <lostemperor> for hosting.
BTW: Are you hosting Bilbao? I know it's only 4 players (Aronian, Anand, Ponomariov and Vallejo) and 6 rounds (Sep14-Sep20), but if you wish, please let the world know soon, as it's in a week.
|Sep-07-14|| ||WannaBe: Congrats to all the winners, and thank you <lostemperor> for hosting the contest!!|
|Sep-07-14|| ||Golden Executive: Thanks <lostemperor> for running the contest.Congratulations to all the medal winners, specially to my good friend <juan31> who reached the Hall of Fame with a double crown in his very first time here. Impressive!!|
See you guys next time.
|Sep-07-14|| ||juan31: Thank you <lostemperor> for the contest, thank you all for you congratulations, the best for you.|
|Sep-07-14|| ||Karposian: Thanks for hosting, <lostemperor>. Big congrats to all the winners.|
|Sep-07-14|| ||moronovich: Thanks for hosting <lostemperor> and fun as always !|
All the best.
|Sep-08-14|| ||wordfunph: grats to all winners, gracias <lostemperor>!|
|Sep-08-14|| ||lostemperor: <Penguincw> the next tournament will likely be Tata Steel Chess 2015. There are other top tournaments, like in London, but the chess agenda is busy eg. with the World title match in November in Sochi. Four in Bilbao is just too few players.|
|Sep-09-14|| ||Penguincw: Sorry for being persistent, but would Tal Memorial be possible?|
|Sep-23-14|| ||Penguincw: Nevermind, I found out Tal Memorial was cancelled. :(|
|Nov-03-14|| ||OhioChessFan: ** World Chess Championship Moves Prediction Contest **|
Conducted by the Legendary <chessmoron> and hosted at Graceland, home of Elvis. Click on Elvis for details.
|Dec-04-14|| ||WannaBe: You doing Tata?
Information on starting Date/Time:
Masters group (Or Group A)
There is also a Challengers group:
But you (always) only do the Masters section (Or what was Group A).
|Dec-07-14|| ||lostemperor: Yes I always do the GM group A (or is it now called master sectcion) since thats hard enough as it is <;)|
I, not purposely, had a kibitz break. A lot has happened this season in chess, not in the least the title match between Carlsen and Anand which Carlsen won. Anand put up a strong resistance (even) more so than the last time.
The traditional <TATA STEEL CHESS 2015> is coming up (and we are ready to predict the outcome after a much needed rest)!
13. Van Wely
I don not know it this is the full list since 13 is not an even number? In the interview after winning Qatar, Yu Yangyi said he will be playing in Holland?!
|Dec-08-14|| ||lostemperor: Although it is not likely Yu will be playing at Tata A group next year. He will play at Gibraltar open right after. Most logical would be Grischuk who had a very fine year or no Russians are invited for the A group 2015 edition.|
|Dec-08-14|| ||WannaBe: New List:
1. GM Carlsen, Magnus
2. GM Caruana, Fabiano
3. GM Aronian, Levon
4. GM Giri, Anish
5. GM So, Wesley
6. GM Vachier-Lagrave, Maxime
7. GM Wojtaszek, Radoslaw
8. GM Radjabov, Teimour
9. GM Jobava, Baadur
10. GM Ding, Liren
11. GM Ivanchuk, Vasil
12. GM Saric, Ivan
13. GM Hou, Yifan
14. GM Van Wely, Loek
|Dec-09-14|| ||lostemperor: Okay <WannaBe> that settles it then. Santa is in time with his (naughty) Tata list and hereby the prediction contest is open!|
14. Van Wely
Good luck and happy holidays all!
