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
