I see that the World Amateur is starting this weekend.
The player list is here : https://www.nihonkiin.or.jp/event/amaki ... pants.html I spotted at least one active forum member.
Youngest player is 13, whilst the oldest is 62.
Pal Balogh is absolutely rocking the hippy look, somewhere between Mike Oldfield on the cover of Ommadawn and John Lennon or George Harrison in their long hair phases. Hard to imagine that anyone will be able to challenge him for first place.

First round pairings are up, but no results yet...

https://www.nihonkiin.or.jp/event/amaki ... dcast.html has link to the live games. edit: One you click the link, there's a tab to the right below the player's faces that takes you to all the games.

There's an odd number of countries this year, so they've created a dummy account, who is currently matched with the Italian player.

- Does getting matched with the dummy get you a win or a bye?

- Does the tournament pairing system have some way of guaranteeing no one in the top ten gets paired against the dummy account. I hope so.

A small gift for the community: https://openuserjs.org/install/quantumf ... er.user.js

If you have Greasemonkey or Tampermonkey, this will enrich the results columns in the table with the country of the opponents rather than the number.

Reminder that results are here https://www.nihonkiin.or.jp/event/amaki ... esult.html

I'll improve it a bit over the next while, e.g. I'll use three letter country codes because by the end it will become unreadable. Any other requests welcome. Let me know if you encounter any bugs.

When I was there they seeded by your country's result last year and then the top 4 each went into their own quarter of the draw for the first round. It was possible for one of those top 4 to play a weak player in the first round which could hurt their SOS in case of tiebreak at the end (e.g. South Korea played a 5k from Ireland). I wonder if dummy is a bye or some local low dan as a ghost.

This year the dummy is a bye.

Is this normal at the WAGC?

Why would it be abnormal for people to wear glasses at the WAGC? :scratch: :mrgreen:

Interesting results. China won with an 8-0 record, Korea was second with 7 wins, neither one of which was surprising. But it was a little surprising that the six win countries were: Hong Kong, USA, Hungary, Canada and Ukraine. Japan and Taiwan both only had 5 wins. I don't know players for all the European countries, but maybe also a little surprising that Timur Sankin and Jonas Welticke left with 4 wins.
