The Manhattan Applesauce and the Baltimore Kingfishers are the only Eastern teams who were able to beat Sandy to get to the USCL tonight! Both teams have solid 4.5-3.5 scores and are trying to rise to secure playoff spots. Therefore, I’ll give you a video of Warren Haynes’ “River’s Gonna Rise.” Its the second track of his Grammy nominated Man In Motion album that I reviewed back in May: Man in Motion Review.
I’m not sure if the term “The T Series” actually exists, but I am going to borrow it from the “Subway Series.” During last night’s horrific hurricane, I got a mediocre 2/4 of game and dismal 6/16 of match predictions correct.
I’m not gonna waste time predicting the other matches for now as their lineups will likely change at least a little bit. Those will come soon, as quickly as needed! For a battle to see who reigns supreme in Boston, I shall share with you a 1976 live rendition of Boston’s “More Than a Feeling.”
Anyway onwards to the predictions!:
IM Zierk- FM Riordan 1/2-/2 Zierk is a favorite but he hasn’t been playing much recently, now that he started MIT, and Riordan is a pretty solid player!
IM Yedidia- SM Shmelov 0-1 As shown in his recent GOTW draw with GM Holt, Shmelov is good at mixing things up!
FM Gulamali- FM Bournival 1-0 Gulamali has been a tear this season with a 3/4 record and 2611 performance rating- enough said!
FM Chase- Miller 1-0 These are two players who I have played against several times before. Chase shall steer the game away from complications with a KIA and be victorious.
and Shmelov and Gulamali will keep Boston’s playoff hopes alive; Boston wins 2.5-1.5!
I’ve been on a tear with match predictions; the last three consecutive nights I got 3/4 correct. I did have a little bit of luck last Wednesday however, as only got 7/16 or 43.75% of game predictions correct.
In honor of the great Hurricane Sandy, I shall share with you a live version of “Hurricane” from one of my favorite Israeli-American bands Soulfarm for my Youtube video of the night!
The Carolina Cobras give Rating and Time Odds to the Dallas Destiny
IM Schroer- GM Sadorra 0-1 We all know Schroer has the capability of playing solid chess, but Sadorra is also good at mixing stuff up!
GM Holt- FM Korley 1-0
Guenther- Mu 0-1
and wins from the GMS shall lead the Destiny to victory, Dallas wins 2.5-1.5
The Miami Sharks and the Los Angeles Vibe Shall Attempt to Break Their 1-1 Tied Lifetime Record
GM Becerra- IM Amanov 1-0
IM Kiewra- SM Perez 1-0
FM Rodriguez- FM Kavutskiy 1/2-1/2
Korba- Rosenthal 0-1 a toss-up between two of the league’s underrated youngsters… I’ll go with Rosenthal as he has more league experience under his belt.
and Miami shall earn a plus lifetime score against LA, Miami wins 2.5-1.5
The St. Louis Arch Bishops shall Attempt to Maintain a Positive Lifetime Record against the Arizona Scorpions (score currently 1.5-.5)
GM Diamant- IM Molner 1-0
IM Altounian- IM Kannappan 1/2-1/2
IM Bregadze- IM Mohandesi 1-0
Chakraborty- Hendrickson 0-1 a toss up, but I’m gonna go with Hendrickson after seeing his stellar performance at the recent SPICE cup, where he gained almost 60 rating points!
and with a margin of error in mind, ST. Louis Shall win 3-1
Two of the Western Division Veteran Heavy-Hitters Duke it Out: The Seattle Sluggers vs the San Francisco Mechanics
GM Akobian- GM Bhat 1-0
GM Kraai- IM Orlov 1-0
Sinanan- FM Lee 1-0
Wheeler- Feng 1/2-1/2
and Seattle Shall Make San Francisco’s playoff prospects minimal; Seattle Wins 2.5-1.5
Last night, reached a personal best! I got 75% of both game and match predictions correct ( 3/4 and 12/16 respectively). Let’s see if I can keep up my Nostradamus skills for tomorrow night’s matches:)
