|Sep-02-15|| ||lostemperor: With strong predictions in particular on Aronian, <Penguincw> and <Robin01> both won two of the three Rankers!! <Robin01> winner of the absolute Ranker and Square Ranker, this tied with <Penguincw> winner Square and pair betting Ranker! Congrats!!|
Only one ♔ will be included into the Hall of Fame however according to the rule that only unique players will be awarded gold medals (in the Square and Pair Betting Rankers (or who otherwise would not be awarded).
<call14> receive Silver in the Absolute ranker and third in the Square. Your contest manager <lostemperor> manage squeeze himself in with a Silver in the Pair betting ranker, where <Penguincw> took first and <Robin01> third! :)
|Sep-02-15|| ||OhioChessFan: Thanks Yoda. Thanks also to <Robin01> for winning one gold or we'd have never heard the end of the historical victory yoda, yoda, yoda stuff.|
|Sep-02-15|| ||lostemperor: Of course in all these awe I forgot to mention <Wordfunph> who neatly took the Bronze (with the South-Artic bird also) in the Absolute ranker! <;)|
|Sep-02-15|| ||Robin01: Thanks for running the contest.|
|Sep-02-15|| ||Penguincw: Hehe, one medal of each kind (gold, silver, bronze). Too bad "only" the good will be inducted. I do have to wonder what happens if that rule didn't exist. Imagine the HOF. I guess I'll do a simulation until the next tournament.|
Speaking of which, is LCC by any chance the next tournament?
Anyway, thanks for hosting, and congrats to the winners, especially <Robin01>, who <also> picked up a gold, silver and bronze.
|Sep-02-15|| ||wordfunph: <lost> gracias :)
cheers to all winners!
|Sep-02-15|| ||Karposian: Thanks, <lostemperor> for another great prediction contest. Congrats to all the medal winners, even <Penguincw> :)|
My daring (insane, according to our dear host) predictions didn't turn out so well. But great fun as always. See you all next time, guys! Cheers.
|Sep-02-15|| ||WannaBe: <lostemperor> Thank you for running the contest, congratulations to all the winners!|
|Sep-02-15|| ||whiteshark: <<lostemperor> Thank you for running the contest, congratulations to all the winners!> I'll second that!|
|Sep-02-15|| ||YouRang: Thanks <lostemperor>, and good jobs by <Robin01>, <Penguincw>, <call14>, <wordfunph>, and <lostemperor>.|
A perfectly dismal performance by me, but someone has to prop up the winners.
|Sep-02-15|| ||Golden Executive: Thanks <lostemperor> for running the contest and congratulations to all of the medal winners, especially to <Penguincw> and <Robin01> for being first place in 2 Rankers!|
See you gals and guys next time.
|Sep-02-15|| ||WinKing: Thanks <lostemperor> for running & hosting this fun contest!|
Congratulations to all of the winners! Strong predictions from both <Penguincw> & <Robn01> put them atop two rankers each - kudos!
|Sep-02-15|| ||lostemperor: I am not planning to do the London Chess Classic since it is in the busy month December. I prefer to go directly to January's Tatasteel chess! |
However this forum is open to make London chess predictions if you like now and I can run the CONMAN software a few times, if only for fun, since I only have to change local player So for Adams to have the results :)

Alright, I'll participate in LCC, just for fun. :)
I just realized that <Robin> and I both won a gold to remain tied at 10th best overall (all 3 contests) with 13 gold, but <Robin> has won way more silver.
|Sep-03-15|| ||moronovich: Thanks for running the contest <lostemperor> and congratulations to all the winners !|
