The Probable Results of the 2012 USCL Season's Week 7, Night 1

Last Monday, I was a miserable Nostradamus wannabe, predicting 0/4 matches correctly and a mere 3/16 games correctly. Wednesday night marked improvements as I got 2/4 matches and 7/16 games correct. I have to admit that the 50% match prediction percentage was pretty lucky though since even though I predicted all the games of the Boston- LA match incorrectly, my 2-2 drawn match prediction held true. 

We are now beyond, or at least in, the seventh galaxy or week of the 2012 USCL season. Let's see what tomorrow night's matches shall look like! 

The Carolina Cobras Get Time Odds Against a Roughly Evenly Rated St. Louis Arch Bishops

IM Schroer- GM Finegold 1/2-1/2 

IM Kannappan- FM Korley 1-0 I saw Kannappan's interview with FM Mike Klein this afternoon; he seems pretty confident against GMs' so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt against my fellow New Yorker and non-GM. 

FM Simpson- IM Bregadze 0-1 

Larson- Jones 0-1 

and despite giving time odds, the St. Louis Arch Bishops shall win 2.5-1.5 

The Miami Sharks and the Seattle Sluggers Shall Attempt to Break Their 5.5-5.5 Tied Lifetime Record 

GM Becerra- IM Orlov 1-0 

FM Cozianu- SM Perez 1-0 

FM Rodriguez- FM Collyer 1-0 

Omori- Rosenthal 0-1 

and in a match with all decisive results, Miami Shall win 3-1

The Dallas Destiny and the Arizona Scorpions Shall Attempt to Break Their 2-2 Tied Lifetime Record 

GM Sadorra- GM Barcenilla 1-0 

IM Molner- GM Holt 1/2-1/2 My instincts told me Molner would lose.. Second thoughts told me a wild tactical melee will lead to a peaceful result. I'll go with the latter! 

Safin- FM Atoufi 1-0 

Chakraborty- Guenther 1-0 

and the Dallas Destiny (2367) pulls of a quote on quote upset against the Arizona Scorpions (2419) Dallas wins 2.5-1.5. 

A Civil War in California: The Los Angeles Vibe vs The San Francisco Mechanics 

GM Khachiyan- IM Naroditsky 1/2-1/2 

IM Zilberstein- WGM Abrahamyan 1-0 

FM Yanayt- FM Liou 1/2-12 

Wheeler- FM Casella 0-1 

and we shall see a Drawn Match 2-2 


  1. If your overall score is below 50% you should just retire and pick up a more worthy occupation, a blind monkey picking at random will probably score close to 50%( did i mention the monkey isnt a chess player?)

    1. When I see such an oblivious comment from an anonymous, I just laugh. First of all, if you're going to comment such negativity, please have the decency to give your name. Secondly, my predictions have nothing to do with my occupation. Teaching chess and interning at a start up take up my professional life. Predicting USCl results is a hobby. Thirdly, try to do some basic math. There are three possible results to a chess game, which would make a so called 'blind monkey' score around 33%, maybe %35 tops.

  2. If you suck at chess, you don't have draws...
