|Jan-29-17|| ||WannaBe: Wow, 2 golds for <Penguincw>. Good job!!|
|Jan-29-17|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: Thanks to <lostemperor> for hosting, and congratulations to the other medalists, especially <Penguincw>!|
|Jan-29-17|| ||lostemperor: After an exciting finish HOFer <Penguincw> came out on top twice in the ABSOLUTE anD PAIR BETTINGS (and a Bronze in the square ranker)!!|
<SwitchingQuylthulg>, who becomes a house-hold name in first Prizes took the Gold in the SQUARE RANKER and also took the second place in the prestigeous PAIR BETTINGS (and a Bronze)! He is approaching <WannaBe> in the Hall of Fame's Bests' list!
<scout118> took the Silver in the ABSOLUTE- and SQUARE RANKER!
Bronze in the ABSOLUTE RANKER goes to <Golden Executive>, who shows great form again with another HOFer <Keyser Soze> (and <SwitchingQuylthulg>)!
<wtwz> neatly took the Bronze in the PAIR BETTINGS!
|Jan-29-17|| ||Penguincw: Wow, double crown (but of course only 1 gold medal). Yay! Up to 4th now in the HOF, and 7th straight year I've won at least a gold medal somewhere. I think I should stick to this new strategy, whatever it is.|
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!|
