A nice win for Wesley So . .


These quadrangular tournaments are odd in that only 12 games are played. This one had only 2 wins, one each for So & Giri. The 3-1-0 London scoring system had no effect here, but it might have done had there been a few more wins. It wasn't much of a tournament, really.


Why do you call it "London Scoring", racist? Wasn't this scoring system first used in the Spanish town of Linares?

I guess you refer to the "French opening" as the "English opening" too, just to spite the frogs, eh?

Ah, yes, very convenient. But it's very difficult to prove...
