March Madness G.O.A.T. (Sweet 16)

  • 4,500 Reads



March Madness is here for the chess fans!  Instead of predicting which NCAA Hoops teams will advance to the final four you can help determine the Greatest Chess Player Of All Time.  There will be a bit of a luck component to deciding who advances.  If 80% of fans pick player 1 and 20% of fans pick player 2, player 1 will have an 80% chance of advancing using a random number generator.

To vote simply pick one player from each match-up in a comment.  Votes will tally at approximately 12:00AM 3/24 PDT.

Example: 1a, 3a, 1b, 2b, etc.

Feel free to also leave comments or persuasive arguments in the comments section.
