It’s the final day of games, and we are currently at game 28 of 32. The standings are as follows:
Lewis Mackay from England is a game and a half ahead of the field in first place. Wellington Jighere from Nigeria is a game and a half ahead of third place. It looks like they might be our most likely contenders for the playoffs on Sunday. However, you can’t count out Komol Panyasoponlert from Thailand and Dave Wiegand from Portland, Oregon who are in third and fourth, respectively. Komol got second at the 2013 world championship in Prague and is a fantastic player. We discussed Dave in our last Worlds update.
Nigel Richards is currently in 9th but with 5 games to go he is still mathematically in it – he will just need to win all of them and have some luck break his way.
