Some statistics about the past season …

  • Roger Loup was the only one who played all 7 rounds, followed by Ulazdimir Kokarau with 6 games.
  • Ulazdimir is ahead in another statistic: he is our top-scorer with 5.5 out of 6! As well as with the best rating step!
    He is followed by Julien Cretin with 4/5 and Daniel Muster with 3.5/5.
    Congratulations to all of them!
  • Laurent Schneider had a great result (3/4), too and crossed the 2000! It could have been even better, as he had a must-win-situation in the last round.
  • The best avarage of all opponents had Rainer Schaub with 2067 on board 1, followed by Shardul Paricharak (1987) and Jarek Bukwa (1965).
  • We had 13 members who played for Team 1 whereas 16 started for Team 2; in total 23 players started in the past SMM season.
  • There was only one forfeit in a total of 78 games.
  • The strongest oppenent was Zug 1 for Letzi 1 with an average of 1991, for Letzi 2 it was UBS 1 with 1915 … unfortunately, we lost both matches.
  • And we were not really lucky with the drawings: 8 away-, but only 5 times home-matches.
