What a close finish! The chess might have not been too exciting today but our Prediction Competition came down to a nailbiting finish! Angus French had a 14 point lead going into the final round but had a relatively poor round, scoring only 52 points. This allowed the rest to close the gap. Jenny Thompson was top scorer in Round 11 with 68 points, but this put her just 2 points behind Angus in the overall standings. Meanwhile Ian Lamb could only score 62 points so finished just 2 points behind Jenny to finish in 3rd place. The winner of Week 1, Andrew Mayhew finished in forth place overall. Well done to Angus who just about did enough in the earlier rounds to allow himself to take a hit but still win!

The Week 2 finish was even tighter! Andrew Adair and Michael Fernandez have occupied the top two positions for the last few rounds but in the end Andrew just pipped Michael by a nose with Ian Lamb joining the party to finish in joint 2nd place.

The best overall round was decided in Round 1 where the Swiss system threw up the pairings with the largest difference in ratings between the players throughout the draw. Apart from Round 1, breaking the 70 point barrier proved to be a tough task – only achieved four times in the final ten rounds. Andrew Mayhew and Bob Clark tied for first place with 78 points, but Bob Clark wins the free e2e4 entry as Andrew had already won the Week 1 Prize.

Some tidbits about Round 11: No unanimous picks but 50/53 of you thought that Howell-Jones would end in a draw. This turned out to be correct but the game lasted a lot longer than many of you probably anticipated! You seemed to expect some more fighting chess and the high number of draws seemed to catch you out, especially between boards 6-11. A lot of you nailed the upsets that occurred, all four of them attracted a double-digit number of selections and there wasn’t a result that none of you predicted!

As well as the normal results tables you can also see the rankings for the total number of correct picks made and the total number of correctly picked upsets people made, so you can see which players got the balance right between going for the underdog and going for the safer bet.

Thanks to everyone that participated and thanks to Chess & Bridge and e2e4 Chess for kindly supplying the prizes – we hope you enjoyed the Competition!
