Hmm... I think Gandolfini is the class of the tournament in terms of
skill. Note that he beat mwest in one of their games, and is up a
piece in the other.
Still, if he loses any more by timeout he might have a hard time
winning it. I'd be surprised if he lost any games any other way,
however, so if he avoids any more timeouts I think he'll pull it out.
Your ratings look very plausible. One quibble-- I think I'll manage
to pick up the coveted 7th spot.
With any luck (and barring
timeouts) I'll probably get 12-15 more points out of the rest of my
games, and I don't think Smuuuv will be able to match that.
This tournament has been a lot of fun! I've played some of my best
chess and my worst chess ever. I don't think I'll be joining any more
1 day TO tourneys, at least until I get internet at home, but I'm glad I
did this one.
Do you all think tournament games should be rated or unrated? I
think it might be nice if they were unrated, but I haven't thought
about it very thoroughly.
