Tipping Competition

    Yes folks, the event that we have all been waiting for :The Irish Championship Tipping Competition and this year there is a new twist to the scoring. Tipsters can choose as many games as they like each day scoring 1pt for a win for the higher rated player, 3 for a draw and 5 if you predict a win by a lower rated player BUT (and here is the new twist) if even one of your predictions is wrong you score nothing for that day. I was hoping that the ICU would facilitate every entrant paying 5 euro online so that there would be prizes for the winners but I don't know if this will happen. Best of luck everyone

    When is the draw going up for the first round? It takes time and a lot of analysis before predictions can be made.

    Looks like the list of players is still in flux. Two dropouts this week, the second of which was yesterday. Another wildcard has been added to the panel.

    Well that's you picking up 0 anyway! This new scoring system may make things a bit easier; we shall see.


    There's usually an upset or two in the first round, but it's usually not worth the risk of trying to pick it I think, so I'll play safe with Murphy x 2, Kanyamarala x 2, T O'Gorman, Fitzsimons and Heidenfeld.

    I’ll leave it up to sodacat whether he’ll permit this one as we’re passed 3 - but I haven’t had a chance to look at games yet as I was trying to get games working on c24, and finish the 100.000 word preview..

    I would take seeds for a point on top 5 boards. 12 and 14 for 1 point too.



  • Registered Users Posts: 210 ✭✭ zeitnot


    For overall result (lots of people seem to be offering predictions on this; maybe it's a tie-break?):

    1. Conor O'Donnell
    2. Conor Murphy
    3. Alexander Baburin.

    (Late entry--the first round is almost over as I type this.)

    I will allow it in return for a nomination to play in the European Senior event in Sardinia!!



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,180 ✭✭✭ sodacat11


    I hope someone is keeping score. I harvested 8 points from my two brave predictions today!!!



  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 6,444 Mod ✭✭✭✭ cdeb


    We have a draw for round 2 - fire ahead with tips while I work out the scores for round 1. Note - I am quite wrecked after today's game, so do check your scores!!



  • Registered Users Posts: 31 FutureCM


    Round 2

    Wins for

    FM Murphy, Conor E

    FM O'Donnell, Conor

    Moran, Darragh (Underdog)

    Draw in

    Fox, Anthony - CM Harding, Tim D



  • Registered Users Posts: 10 CremeDeLaHarvey


    Sadly The Dazzler cost me all the marbles during Round 1. He now knows he is under huge pressure to deliver the goods tomorrow, or I won't back him again.

    Round 2:

    Wins for CremeDeLaODonnell, C.Murphy, T.O'Gorman and D.Fitzsimons. Draws in Daly-Baburin, Kanyamarala-Kanyamarala and Fox vs Harding. And a win for The Dazzler, vs K.Burke.



  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 6,444 Mod ✭✭✭✭ cdeb


    OK - the new scoring system has certainly taken its toll! And indeed I'm to blame for some of that (sorry not sorry 😁)

    Sodacat may regret being so conservative with just two tips, but they were good, and he is in sole second behind Alice, who was the only person to call Tony Fox to draw. Did none of us watch last year?! Reigning champion WilliamKenny is lurking on 7.

    Shout out too to EnPassant for tipping Leon to win against the seed, but Gerry O'Connell let him down.

    This is how I see it. Any errors, let me know!




  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 6,444 Mod ✭✭✭✭ cdeb


    And I think round 2 is a time for a couple of "gimmes", such as there are in this comp, and maybe a tip into an upset.

    So Conor x 2, Tom, David Fitz, Lara and Adam for me, with Tony Fox to draw.



  • Registered Users Posts: 265 ✭✭ EnPassant


    For round 2:-

    Wins for Conor Murphy, Tom O'Gorman, Conor O'Donnell, David Fizsimons, Peter Cafolla and Darragh Moran (lower-rated)



  • Registered Users Posts: 31 FutureCM


    Apologies to the scorer for the confusion but could I add a draw in WIM Kanyamarala Trisha - FM Kanyamarala Tarun
