Re: Gautam De wins AICCF #1513

This was one of the most hard-fought, closest AICCF championship of recent memory. Congrats to all the top-3 title winners:Gautam De,Srinivas Sastry & Om Prakash. It was interesting to see De losing to Sastry, who lost to Om, who in turn lost to De- a triangular contest.

De was perhaps lucky to win versus Das on time in an equal position, whereas Om was very unlucky to lose on time versus Sailesh after having been offered a draw which he declined. Om benefited versus Aayush due to the "mirroring" controversy because he got 1 full point whereas De had previously drawn versus Aayush. I had suggested to AICCF Management that the results versus Aayush should be disregarded for the top-3 positions. Such a special tie-breaker was not required because De needed just a draw versus Chauhan to win him the tournament since he had already beaten Om in their individual game. In the end, De managed to beat Chauhan in style to clinch the title.

Perhaps Kalapi Trivedi was most unlucky to be not among title contenders despite having not lost a single game in the tmt!

Re: Gautam De wins AICCF #1513

A very cryptic message posted by De!

I'm reminded of a similar cryptic "sher"(couplet) from Mirza Ghalib:

Humko maloom hai zannat ki haqiqat lekin,
Dil ke khush rakhne ko Ghalib, yeh khayal achcha hai!

(I know the truth about the reality of Heaven, to keep my heart happy, this thought is nice!)
