Hivechess Tournament Season 6 last round: @burnoutawesome was the new winner, plus final ranking

Dear chess fans,

yesterday the final competition of the Hivechess Tournament season 6 was played. 16 players (again the magic number!) had joined the 8 round 5+1 Swiss tournament.
We had a surprise winner: @burnoutawesome could leave the whole field behind him and won with a full point lead, second was @eniolw and "only" third was our alltime-winner @sawko. Congratulations to all 3 players!


The games of this round can be found here, in case you want to replay some of them.

As expected, @sawko is again the deserved winner - with an impressive lead, @jaki01 is the runner-up. This time @eniolw was third despite having played 2 rounds less - also a remarkable performance.

Congratulations to all players!


Season stats

The average tournament rating of this season 5 was 1877, again the highest so far! Seems the tournament is attracting more stronger players than weaker ones. Also participation-wise this season marked a new record with 15,4 players on average per round (old record from S5 was 13,9). So it is going in the right direction.

In total 22 players participated - less than in the last season, but it went only over 7 rounds! They took part on average in 4,9 out of 7 rounds which is quite high.
4 players this time had shown up less then 3 times and according to the rules therefore are not considered for the prices!

Thank you all for your participation & engagement (and the upvotes)!

Here you can see all results of the 7 rounds of season 6:

As always, I will do the exact calculation of the prices after the payout of this post.

In the next 2 weeks or so there will be a break and somewhere in July the next season will start. Watch out for the announcement post!

See you soon in Season 7!
