Hivechess Tournament S10 Round 5: @sawko strikes back!

Dear chess fans,

the fifth round of S10 was a 3+3 arena. 32 players had joined with an average rating of 1879. Actually 36, but some did not have the minimum of 3 played games (just as a reminder: a game doesn´t count when the opponent didnn´t show up).

After 2 weeks of "surprise winners", yesterday @sawko won the third time in S10, with quite some lead. Behind him there was a close battle for the runner-up where at the end @eniolw managed to succeed and @franu (Tz995) ended up as third. Congratulations to All!

For me this round was s complete disaster. Somehow this timeformat didn´t suit me, I had rather long games, so too few of them to accumulate points, with nonetheless unnecessary blunders. Can´t get worse than that.

The only good thing was the game against my "eternal nemesis" @schamangerbert (the expression is from him (source) but I like it 😁). Here I (with White) had figured out that the Black pieces are so misplaced and with the King pushed to h5 it would be time for a mating net. After Qa6 I indeed was threatening mate, so Black did play g4 which now is a nice mate in 2 (which I had missed and thus it took some more moves to win) - can you spot it?

The rules you can look up in the S10 announcement post.

After having played 5 of 10 rounds, @sawko could extend his lead to comfortable 15 points, nevertheless he should make sure to not miss a single round! @cocacolaron is still second and @samostically could regain the third spot from @jaki01 who is now 4th.

What about the special prices?
The price for the highest overall tournament performance would currently go to @tungphong (blackswan21) with 2395, slightly ahead of @eniolw´s 2376 (assuming that @sawko would be the overall winner, which means in this case he can´t get the special price on top of it).

The price for the highest performance in relation to the own rating currently would go to:

RankHive nameLichess nameAv. RatingAv. PerformanceDifference
1@nftland1989CHeSsdieGOst1069,51324,3254,8
2@bOsDa_k1ng13161537,7221,7
3@mrsarriFreeman211692,51906,5214

But attention: It will only paid out, if the winner had participated at least 4 times, to allow enough data gathered for a minimum reliability of the average calculations.

See you all next week - and keep practicing!

I felt like the average rating of the players was higher this time. This was definitely my best performance with 4 wins, I'm slowly getting better.

It's a surprise to see you so low on the ranking man, hopefully you'll get back on track next week (we even finished with the same points :P)

See you all next week.

Rd.3: 1822 (34)
Rd.4: 1766 (26)
Rd.5: 1879 (32)

Average rating of all rounds: 1852.8

Too much fun to miss 😁

Of course you won! There will be more of that. You only have to play long enough with me and you will see ‘The Lighteye’s gambit’ again – sac a Queen without any compensation whatsoever 😁😁😁
