Tournament Prediction Game 2017 (PPP) 🡺 "4th FIDE GP - Palma de Mallorca"

  • #701

    It's all to do with a protest against Agon's claim to exclusivity rights; after all if people don't know about the product, how can they make money from it?

    Looks like Agon have accidentally revealed the venue of the World Championship match... not that I am complaining about the venue wink.png

    Black magic.

    Just kidding, I copy the usernames from the standings and also from the newest event into an Excel document, use the Remove Duplicates function, and then copy the first time players into the Standings sheet.

    In Speed Chess Championship (we will only predict the finale), today there was a match Carlsen vs So.

    And... well, So got trashed? Carlsen played brilliantly? Not sure these two words describe it correctly. We would need Maurice to serve us some spicy comparison tongue.png

    For those who don't follow it, normally the difference is about 5-10 points. Today: 27.5-9.5
