Chronicles of players on the playok platform for the week beginning 9th November 2020 9th edition


Last week’s campaign of games and matches was exciting as ever but a little subdued compared to previous weeks. It seems players have got into a more sustainable rhythm of playing and picking their games carefully. The number of players competing consistently stayed the same. Marathon matches were in short supply, the longest being the late Sunday evening 24-game match between zingman and new-comer to the top 50 tps491g and just a month on the platform. Late Sunday evening also saw a one-sided match between leprophete and motembapembe.


Highlight of the week: As already alluded to in the introduction, last week’s highlights came in the late hours of Sunday in matches between leprophete multiple practice tournament winner and ranked fourth on the platform and the newcomer from several weeks into the top 50 motembapembe. They played a twelve-game match which resulted in a conclusive 10 – draw – 1 victory for leprophete. motembapembe also featured in an acrimonious match with wkc1342 where psychological tactics through heckling was deployed by wkc1342, in an attempt, to put motembapembe of his / her game. in the end they drew 3 – draw – 3.

Practice Tournament: The weekly practice tournaments are becoming increasingly intense and competitive as the range of participating players level of play becomes increasingly narrows. This week’s tournament featured players from the yellow and green band rankings, with a few blue ranked players. The beauty about this tournament is that players of all abilities get to play each other, something that does not happen as often as it should in the ashanti room, giving rise to the potential for upsets and demonstrated in this weeks tournament. phlorix50 a blue ranked player did particularly well, taking games of monkftw and chronica to place fourth. At the end of the seven rounds legagnat reigned supreme winning all his matches to gain seven points, rubber up was monkftw with five points, and in third position was ddi also with five points.
