Predict a Result- British Championship top four boards

Post by Andrew Martin » Mon Jul 25, 2016 1:24 pm

We are running our usual Predict-a-Result competition at the British for the commentary audience and for the first time open it out to members of the English Chess Forum

There will be two book prizes each day for the lucky winners.

All you have to do is correctly predict the result of the top four boards each day by a simple post on this thread. Spectators in the audience at Bournemouth will also be participating locally. You must make your guess by 3pm.

If you are right you will go into a daily prize draw, which will be made by Jack Rudd at noon each day. if there are no winners a rollover will take place.

Results will be posted as soon after noon as possible and I will contact winners by means of a PM. Your book prize will then be posted to you. There will be various choices.

Man vs Machine is unavailable this year, for the first time on record.

We start today. I hope you can take part.


Top 4

1) Peter Shaw-Michael Adams
2) David Howell-Koby Kalavannan
3) Philip Crocker-Gawain Jones
4) Nick Pert-Carl Bicknell

I think I'd go for that too. The best chance for an upset might be board 2 if we see a massive time scramble.

I thought about deviating on board 2 but Howell seems to have a time scramble every game and usually seems to come through them with a victory.

I'll go with this too. Saves typing. And thinking.
