    I'd love to play but I think as a selector I should stay out of it.

    But the selections have already been made...? I don't think it could hurt.

    If you're still having reservations though, perhaps a sojourn to the Lounge?

    why?

    could someone explain to me why anyone would object to people making predictions on game outcomes?

    I don't think that there will many upsets, if any in the first round. But seeing I guess going for all wins for the higher rated player is really brave I will predict a couple of upsets.

    1 FM Guthrie, Aaron 1:0 Ftacnik, Lubomir
    2 GM Rogers, Ian 1:0 FM Levi, Eddy
    3 Smirnov, Vladimir 0:1 Schmaltz, Roland
    4 GM Chandler, Murray 1:0 FM Dougherty, Michael
    5 WIM Caoili, Arianne 1/2:1/2 Johansen, Darryl
    6 IM Zhao, Zong-Yuan 1:0 Lakner, Jay
    7 Booth, Stewart 0:1 IM Lane, Gary
    8 IM Wohl, Alex 1:0 Ly, Moulthun
    9 Bird, Andrew 0:1 IM Smerdon, David
    10 IM Solomon, Stephen 1:0 Pyke, Malcolm
    11 Wallis, Christopher 0:1 FM Bjelobrk, Igor
    12 FM Canfell, Greg 1:0 WIM Moylan, Laura
    13 Song, Raymond 0:1 FM Xie, George
    14 FM Goldenberg, Igor 1:0 Obst, James
    15 Frame, Nigel 0:1 FM Humphrey, Jonathan

    PS Kevin, I don't think there is anything wrong with you putting selections in, it is only a bit of fun.

    No this is silly, the whole premise is silly and very badly written. I'm the senior officer here and I've not had a funny line yet so I'm stopping it.

    I notice that the pairings have had the colours reversed on the offical website, so we may have all made our selections with the wrong colours.
