  MissScarlett: He and Pragg should have swapped places. I thought it was obvious from last year's Goldmoney Asian Rapid (2021) that he's the better player.
Jan-27-22  paavoh: L'Ami and Ganguly doing worse than I expected, 5/10.

  An Englishman: Good Afternoon: Erigaisi look rather frighteningly good, doesn't he?

Indeed, he does! He was clearly superior to his competition in this tournament. I'm looking forward to seeing how he does in the masters section next year.
