  thegoodanarchist: Why do they call it the "Superfinals"?

I suppose because when it is over, it is super over. Thus making is super final.

Oct-24-16  et1: After eight rounds 13 decisive matches in the men's tournament and 33 in the women's ! Super GMs are masters of drawing and harder to beat ?

I imagine if the boys and girls merged into a 24-player Superfinal there'd be a higher decisive rate than either tournament alone.

  HeMateMe: what would Tal, Korchnoi and Kasparov say about all of these draws if it were a USSR final?

Which would, of course, have the bonus effect of creating the heaven-sent opportunity for some posters to kvetch due to the 2700s beating the spots off the women.

  iking: Russians are well educated in chess .. the result seems good ... no run away winner yet, decider tomorrow.
Oct-26-16  et1: one game to go and 11 in 12 contenders can still make 50 percent of points - isn't this remarkable ?

  Pedro Fernandez: I named here two GMs who like me, i.e. V. Fedoseev (21) and G. Oparin (19). About the latter, I continue thinking that this GM has a lot of future. Yes, he lost vs Grischuk and Inarkiev, but I see in Oparin an aggressive and ambitious man. About Fedoseev, certainly he is not a surprise for anyone.

  whiteshark: <abuzic> as the rd 9 game Koka-Inar is not included yet, you have to add +.5 point to your table for both players.

<plang> That's 27.3% It's not high either or is it? ;)

Oct-27-16  cplyakap: Riazantsev became 2016 Russia Champion!Congratz.
Oct-27-16  CountryGirl: Glad Riazantsev won. He's a very talented and decent player.

No, it's not high - probably a bit below average.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: If you visit page 1, you will see that I *incorrectly* incorrectly (!) picked Riazantsev to win. That means I deserve zero credit because I thought I was wrong!

  HeMateMe: I picked Svidler to not repeat as champ. I thought he was off form.
Oct-28-16  Beholder: <An Englishman: If you visit page 1, you will see that I *incorrectly* incorrectly (!) picked Riazantsev to win.>

Yeah that deserves a full quote:

<Oct-15-16 An Englishman: Good Evening: Just for fun, I shall incorrectly pick Riazantsev to win. He won't, but he does play some entertaining chess: L Draskovic vs A Riazantsev, 2015.>
