In the third round there were a few games so far that showed that not everyone has a lot of (online or real live) tournament experience.

 

Just a kind reminder to everyone that if there is something you are not sure of or disagree with something that happens in a game, we have arbitrage by the WCO team. For this to work succesfully, just post screenshots/video in the game thread used to arrange the game and we will have a look at it.

 

Examples of these are:

1 games with little progression (one player does move pieces but does not attack).

2 One player has higher piece plus some lower pieces and other player has one piece of lower rank that cannot be captured and is trying to shuffle and slowly hit enemy back line

Things are getting tense as the second WCO nears its end. A close look at the top 8 and defending champion:
 
Gkaros gr.jpg
After leading the tournament for several rounds, Gkaros's impressive run, including victories against the likes of hielco and playa1, came to and end by losing against dutch junior prodigy, hello124
 
Hello124 nl.jpg
Having beat players like dutchkillers, napoleon 1er, texaspete, playa1 and gkaros, hello124 is now leading the WCO. Is this his edition to win? next round will not be easy for him by any means, playing against -Wogomite- . Fun fact: Hello124 lost his first round match against dalee and has made an excellent comeback so far
 
Playa1 nl.jpg
Having a good start with 4 wins in a row, his streak was stopped by gkaros in the 5th round. One round round later, another difficult task was at hand for playa1 by being paired up against Sohal which turned out to be a victory for playa1, only to lose against the current #1 of the leaderboard, hello124 one round later. Honorable mention: Beat the defending champion (Morx).
 
Hielco nl.jpg
Having a good start by winning his first 3 games of the tournament, his streak, like playa1's, was stopped by gkaros in the 4th round. After losing vs gkaros, hielco was paired up against nortrom whom  beat hielco in the 5th round. Consecutive victories against astros, hondjekapitein, and sohal put hielco back in the top places.
 
Wogomite us.jpg
Having a difficult task at hand, being paired up against hello124, Wogomite has shocked the WCO by defeating defending champion Morx in the first round. Having beat players like Lonello, losermaker and hondjekapitein on his way to the top, he also found his winning streak being put to an end by no one else other than gkaros. An excellent recovery by beating napoleon 1er, puts him on the #1 board of this round, giving him a shot at shaking up things.
 
Spion... nl.jpg
Beating defending champion morx in the second round, losing against spyros77 in the 3rd round, striking back with a victory against theoptician, only to lose the round after against josephwhite. Spion then started an impressive winning streak by defeating Leppie, mrbrainiac, and nortrom, putting him in a top spot at the beginning of the 9th round. A bumpy but rather impressive performance
 
Nortrom nl.jpg
Runner up of WCO 2015. Having an excellent start by winning 3 consecutive games, a draw against sohal put an end to the winning streak. In the 5th round, a victory over hielco put him into a good position for the tournament title. Another draw against gkaros in the 6th round proved to be costly, putting gkaros ahead. A close victory against losermaker, followed up by a defeat against spion... in the 8th round, giving him his first WCO loss ever, put him in the #7th spot, hoping that other top competitors will make a mistake.
 
Sohal fr.jpg
A rather weird start for sohal, winning the first round due to a no show of the opponent, sohal then beat thee_assassin, leppie (who beat sohal last year), a draw against nortrom, followed up by a victory over mrbrainiac in the 5th round, faced playa1 in the 6th round which turned out to be a disaster, sohal losing the game. In the 7th round, sohal also got revenge on spyros77 who beat him last year. Unfortunately for sohal, the round after, he faced hielco which turned out to be too much of a challenge that game. Playing texaspete09 in the 9th round, we wish him the best of luck in this difficult challenge.
 
Morx nl.jpg
Defending champion of WCO 2015, had a difficult start, losing against wogomite in the first round, suffering another painful defeat afterwards against spion... in the second round, found his form from last year back by taking the points off Bizevr, kambia, the prof, josephwhite, texaspete09, winning 5 games in a row to make an impressive comeback. Only to be stopped by playa1 in the 8th round. In the 9th round, he will face nortrom

Hello124 beats Wogomite, maintaining his lead in the WCO standings. 

 

 

Hielco plays a draw against playa1

 

 

After these results the world champion will be this  player who will reach at least the level of 50 points.

This means that only 2 players can be the online world champion 2016-207 and these are :  hello124 , and the winner of the game gkaros vs spion...

In case of a draw in this game , hello124 will  celebrate the title before the last round

But gkaros and hello124 can not play with each other right, because they already did in Round 8?

Thank you, I missed those small letters. Apparentally I was checking the forums needlessly all night for the results.

Almost equally exciting is did the results come in for the US champion? Is it going to be you, Pete or Prof? Same for the best Swiss... is it going to be astros or Napoleon? Yangus or Leppie for Belgium? I hope Leppie because last but not least who's going to be the Best of the Rest of the Dutch? Is it going to be me or dutchkillers playing Leppie? Since I beat Mastermind, hondje and Yellowhat all I strive for is my Dutch replacementspot I won against dutchkillers last time ;).
