Hivechess Tournament Season 14 Round 6: A big surprise for the quarter finals!
Dear chess fans,
in the sixth round of S14 we had a 6+1 arena tournament with 17 players again. 2 more players (emprendemesta, @johannfrare) did not register in time and weren´t counted!
In a weaker field (players like @sawko, @eniolw, @vjap55 or @samostically were missing) @maestroask (Odnoobraz_bcm) had as expected a perfect score against his opponents who had an average rating score of 1831 (so 775 rating points difference!) and could gain an easy win. @rosmarly was runner-up (I think her best result in Hivechess so far! Well done!), closely followed by @lucianosky (Pavarotty), ex aequo in points. Behind them were @fcastro177 as fourth and @emic as fivth. Congratulations!

According to the rules, after this round it is decided who will be the Top8 proceeding to the knockout stage! For this I had to substract the worst result from each player ("strike" at the right border of the table) and - big surprise - the following 8 players are the ones:
@lighteye as 7th and @stranger27 as 8th could last minute overtake the much more favored @sawko, thanks to the lower point reduction and due to more participations. Congratulations to both! The race for place 2 was extremly close, with @rosmarly catching up in this round due to her excellent 2nd place, but just the slightly lower average performance prevented her from overtaking me.
Just as a reminder, those are the pairings in the upcoming quarterfinals, as described in the announcement post of S14:
For all others, these are the standings (with the strike results added back, they will count only after round 9 again). Just as a reminder, the winner (ranked 9 in the table) will get a seat in the quarterfinals of the next season!
