Candidates Predictions Update Rd 1
I'm going to try to keep a log of how well my predictions do from December. In round 1 I predicted there would be some bloodshed with 3 decisive results out of 4. I scored 50% in round 1, correctly predicting Anand winning and the draw between Giri and Aronian. Nakamura was pressing for a win around move 20, but Karjakin didn't appear to get anything out of the opening.

Comparison of the actual and projected standings:

I predicted round 2 will see draws in Aronian-Anand, Caruana-Giri, and Karjakin-Nakamura. Svidler is projected to beat Topalov knowking him down to -2!
