    Time for a run through the groups -
    who is likely advancing to the next round?
    are there any major upsets?
    who is the tournament favourite at this point?

    Group 1
    Rating favourite MikeBruce has a flawless record so far and looks to be advancing to the next round

    Group 2
    Rating favourite Jimmy Cake is very close to being through to next round, but could possibly be overtaken by dean8, who still have 13 games in progress (including an important one against Jimmy Cake)

    Group 3
    Currently lead by Egmen, but could still be won by highest rated cristi71000

    Group 4
    mozart1234(1698) is through - won 16 of 16 games so far

    Group 5
    Hammer4ever has played out all games - 45 points
    billwesthoff is still having 1 game in progress and also has 45 points!

    Group 6
    deeply satisfied is through losing only 1 game on the way

    Group 7
    jayvi is almost through, but could theoretically be caught by KINGSI

    Group 8
    Although Bubbag1 is leading the group with 41 points (no games left)
    it seems that Mark Lynch has a good chance of progressing having won all games so far and still 9 in progress and only 14 points to reach Bubbag1

    Group 9
    fischerov(1637) is through having won all games!

    Group 10
    Blanca(1801) is through. Only 1 game remaining - have won all 17 so far!

    Tournament favourite must be Blanca, rated 1801.
    But we could await stiff competition from fischerov(1637) and mozart1234 (1698)
    Good luck to everyone!

    All games in the final group has finished. It was very close with only 1 single point separating the winner, fischerov (49), and second spot, Blanca (48).
    Both players won their white game against the other, so the decisive games were Blancas loss to deeply satisfied, whereas fischerov only gave away a draw to 2nd highest rated player, mozart1234.

    Congratulations to the winner who will hopefully receive
    the prize, a t-shirt, soon...! And thanks a lot to all 100 players for participating in this event.
