...on any given Wednesday

Jeff Sonas I'm not; but if ratings do have predictive value then one can statistically derive the "expected" score for each player in the tournament. Using this table I found at, I did just that based on 8/04 published USCF ratings. It will be interesting to compare these calculations to the final results:

5.0 Mac Intyre
4.8 Chase
4.6 Riordan
4.2 Cherniack
3.9 Martirosov
2.3 Williams
2.2 Slive
1.3 Glickman
