Blockchain chess is unstoppable!
We played in liga 8B, with 86 players from 10 teams! There were overall less strong players compared to last time (however still a GM and a FM), but the field was competitive enough so that we could get only the third rank, at least with a comfortable gap to the 4th team - enough to promote to liga 7 (the top 3 promote)!
The final standings:
Thanks a lot to ALL participants: @jaki01 - again best in our team, @emic, @rosmarly, @dhilan04, @mundocuriosidad, @deadleaf, @agreste, @rodrook, @grafo07, @lighteye, @sammy00 and @digitalis. To the 7 top-ranked ones I sent already 1 Hive each, to @jaki01 as topscorer 2!
The next event starts tomorrow Thursday, 1st June, 18h GMT.
We will be in liga 7A (ranked up from last time). As always, the more from our team participate, the higher our chances will be to get a good result and improve in the rankings!
How far can we get?

As a small incentive, to every player who will be contributing points to the end result (i.e. the top 7 of our team) I will send 1 Hive and 2 Hive to the top ranked player! - if we promote to liga 6!
Also, 20% of the rewards of this post go the prizepool of S16!
In the meantime Norway Chess 2023 started - a super strong 10 player classical OTB round robin tournament featuring Magnus Carlsen, Alireza Firouzja, Fabiano Caruano, Anish Giri, Hikaru Nakamura and others!
In the first round surprisingly both top seeded Magnus and Alireza lost!
