  Eggman: After starting off the tournament with two consecutive losses, Ljubojevic goes on to score a win and eight draws, the draws all being less than 25 moves, three of them less than 20 moves. This is something I don't miss about chess from the pre-internet era.
Oct-09-22  Chessius the Messius: Ljubo kept it precisely at 23,5454545 moves per game.
