<Format>:

[player]-[player] [result] [# of MOVES]

==4 Different Scoring Methods==

Standard Moves Ranker (1st place-Over[3pts], 1st place-Under [7pts], Exact [10pts])

Bonus Ranker (3rd place-Over[1pts],2nd place-Over[2pts],3rd place-Under [5pts], 2nd place-Under [6pts]

Standard Moves/Bonus Ranker [Add all to together]

1st place Ranker [how many 1st place you have in Standard Moves Ranker]

For example:

<Note: Participants 3, 4, and 5 are predicated on nobody scoring an exact as Participant 2 did. If someone hits an exact, the closest score under and over will score the points for second place.>

Actual Game: [player]-[player] 0-1 45

Participant 1: [player]-[player] 1/2 45
Participant 2: [player]-[player] 0-1 45
Participant 3: [player]-[player] 0-1 44
Participant 4: [player]-[player] 0-1 43
Participant 5: [player]-[player] 0-1 46

Participant 1: No points even though 45 is correct. Results must be correct. If Result is wrong and moves # is correct...you get no points whatsoever

Participant 2: 10 pts rewarded for correct Result/moves #

Participant 3: 7 pts rewarded for closest under (1st-Under) to 45 moves

Participant 4: 6 pts rewarded for the 2nd closest under (2nd-Under) to 45 moves.

Participant 5: 3 pts rewarded closest OVER(1st-OVER) to 45 moves.

Again, the description of Participant 3, 4, and 5 are based on there being no exact prediction as made by Participant 2.

<IF> there is an exact or an under closest, the highest scoring over participant will be 2nd over. The second closest over will be 3rd over. The <ONLY> time there will be a first over is if there is no exact or under winner.

  OhioChessFan: ** Round 7 Recap **

The contest got much more exciting as we currently have 4 different people leading the 4 Rankers. <GE> and <juan> continue to lead a Ranker each, and <chessmoron> moved into the lead in one. <Ali Firouzja> proved he can predict chess better than he can play it, as he moved into sole lead in Moves Ranker and a tied lead in #1 Ranker.

In other news, <Messiah> apparently received a temporary ban for spamming, because he's repeatedly posted the kibitz, "Games have started". Site admins declined comment when <OCF> challenged them. <Messiah> learned his lesson as he decided not to make that post for the current round. <amw> was embarrassed as he overslept and missed the round. Word on the street was that he imbibed a little too much of the potent potable in his user name. <OCF> continues to beg <cm> to not count the first round and <cm> continues to laugh in his face.

Will <Messiah> be banned again? Will <amw> sober up and get back to full strength? Will anyone claim a conflict of interest with <Ali Firouzja> playing in both the Candidates and this contest? Stay tuned for the answers to these and many other interesting questions.

I'll respond here.

And a great move spotted by the kid. The queen sacrifice reminds me of the game Carlsen vs Topalov, 2010.

Also in this game, Topalov resigned at that point, but in this game, white also ignored the Nxd3 threat, and instead played dxe6, intending to follow up with exf7+ and then taking on e8.

And since you said the kid was 11, he may have not even been born when this game was played! He should definitely check out this game - he plays like Carlsen!

I think 1.dxe6 is best.

After something like: 1.dxe6 Nxd3 2.exf7+ Kh7 3.fxe8Q Rxe8 4.cxd3 a6


click for larger view

White has a rook and 2 knights for the queen.

If white had a c2 pawn, it would really be game over. Black will get some play against white's weak pawns, but it doesn't compensate the lost material.

I also don't like the way black looks on the f-file, the g6 and f5 squares.

White had a fine position, and would be slightly better after the normal: 1.Qe2 cxd5 2.exd5 Bd7 3.b4 Na6 4.b5 Nc5

but Id rather have the material.
