Rabin predicts the 2011 USCL Season Week 7 Round 2

Tuesday night's prediction's weren't too shabby. I predicted 2/4 matches and 11/16 game points correctly. Furthermore, I predicted NY-NJ and LA-Miami(despite their last min changes) perfectly.

The Slightly Above Par Manhattan Apple Sauce vs the Comeback kids: The NE Nor'easters
IM Milman- IM Hungaski 1-0 in the battle of two GM strength IMs, I think the one with a better season so far is gonna win!
IM Vigorito-IM Vovsha 1-0 Vigorito is going to win with a long grind after a theoretical Gruenfeld duel!
FM Mandizha- Cherniack 1-0 Farai is just a beast!
Fikiet-Black  1-0

and 4 decsive results will lead to a Drawn Match 2-2. The last time, I predicted a drawn match with all decsive wins, Manhattan drew NY with all draws, so let's see what will happen:)

The Baltimore Kingfishers and Carolina Cobras Fight to See Who Can Go Back to an Even Score

GM Kaufman-IM Schroer 1-0 These players drew in 2007, when Larry was "mere" IM, This time they'll repeat their 2010 result: Mr. Rybka wins!
FM Korley-IM Enkhbhat 1/2-1/2 Enhkbhat will equalize relatively easy but nothing more
Defibaugh-Simpson 0-1
Jones-Zimmer 1-0
and Carolina pullls off a slight upset with a 2.5-1.5 margin, equalizing its score

The Absolutely Dominant Chicago Blaze vs the San Francisco Mechanics
I said it a few weeks ago- I'll say it again. The Blaze is hand's down the strongest team in the league now.
GM Shulman-GM Bhat 1-0
GM Kraai-GM Amanov 1/2-1/2
IM Young-IM Naroditsky 1/2-1/2
Byambaa- Schmackel 0-1
With a moe in mind, Chicago wins 2.5-1.5 to obtain an astonishing 7-0 score and assured playoff spot

The Slightly Behind the Game Arizona Scoprions vs the Slightly Ahead of the game Dallas Destiny
IM Molner-IM Bercys 1-0:two strong IMS who both used live in the NY area: Mac is currently on a tare.
IM Holt-FM Banawa 1-0
FM Adamson-FM Kiewra  1/2-1/2 pretty much a toss-up but they had two decisive games in the past leading to an even score- why not draw this time?!
Xiong-Adelberg 0-1
and both teams will be tied in the middle of the pack as Arizona shall win 2.5-1.5

  1. NE-MAN was almost an all decisive match and would have been if not for a board 4 blunder... with all the results you did NOT guess!
