Hivechess Tournament Round 2: @sawko was the winner again!

Dear Chess fans,

the second round of Season 8 was a 4+1 Blitz arena with 20 players again! This time the average rating (1927) was even higher than last time! We could welcome a record-breaking number of 5 completely new players: @pamboy27, @agreste, @ebingo, @b0s (Da_k1ng) and Mr_Mendel (no Hive username), some came over from the "Liga CB" run by @chessbrotherspro. And @vjap55 finally showed up again! In fact he was even streaming the tournament! Please check out his stream here!
And also @samostically streamed the event here on 3speak!

@sawko could again win this round, with quite a gap to the runner up, @jaki01 who was in better form today than last time. Closely behind him, a group of 3 had the same points: @kreur, @samostically and @pamboy27. Congrats to All! @tungphong (blackswan21), the current leader of the Liga CB, ended "only" on the sixth spot.
I could gain only the 10th rank, my worst result ever in Hivechess, but we never had such a set of strong players, so I guess I have to get used to these results. And blundering a queen like in my game against @lighteye should also be avoided next time.

The rules you can look up in the announcement post.

No big changes on the top of the rankings, @sawko could extend his lead, @kreur and @jaki01 could improve their positions a little bit and @pamboy27 with his good first result jumped immediately to the 7th spot! 3 more rounds to go in this season, so all is still possible.

See you alle next week!
