this will be the first time these two meet in a tournament.
KARAISKAKIS vs. KingTubby
Next game will be a match that has been played twice during tournaments (according to the archives), with KARAISKAKIS being the victor twice. Can KingTubby turn the tides? KingTubby has played 3 German players in a row, followed by two consecutvie games against Greek players, this will be the 3rd consecutive game against a Greek player.
Aris1970 vs. Malcom.jansen
Last we have Aris1970 against Malcom.jansen who is playing his first WCO (and tournament?) ever. Looking at the most recent clean ranking
we see that Malcom.jansen has quickly climbed the ranking. Three out of four Aris victories were against his fellow countrymen, while his only lost game was against a Dutch player. Malcom had a rather diverse mix of opponents, 1x US, 1x GR, 1x NL and 2x BE
