14 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Hopefully you're as nervous as I am
14 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: To be honest I played so much 1v1 in this tournament and experienced so much lucky guesses that I don't really care any more if I win or lose, sorry to say it. My moves are a bit random in both games right now...
14 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: But I'm curious ofcourse, not really nervous
14 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: For me it feels like when both players are equally strong it comes down to some 50/50 guesses in the end, so it feels like luck plays a bigger part than strategy, which makes me sad

14 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Well, some of it's luck. But some of it is skill. I was pretty sure that you would go to Berlin. But I judged the small risk that you wouldn't too great. Every other one of your moves went about as I thought they would
14 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: It's just more about judgement calls, in this case. Is Belgium more important than Kiel? Is opening Piedmont worth having you in Tyrolia?
14 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: I have to admit, I was very tempted by the prospect of sitting in both Burgundy and Piedmont at the end of the season
15 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: In my experience when both players have equal skill it becomes a 50/50 in a lot of cases where there are 2 possibilities to order. You can better roll a dice instead of trying to predict I think.
