Tim Wall at 2162 looks like a clear case of rating deflation (albeit one of many for those below the 2500 mark), doesn't it?

Anyway, we can only do a silly contest for the first round. Try to nominate games where the higher rated player will NOT win - with a maximum of five attempts.

Ok - boards 15, 25, 31, 32 and, the tie of the round, board 28.

25, 29, 30, 33; hard to see any upsets against the 2300+ players, but there are bound to be one or two, so board 5, for double points please.

The Ashtead match on 31 is my banker.
