Did Meckwell really play 287 boards? That's not a multiple of 16!
Second Thoughts about U31 Junior Event
Total masterpoints is not a rating system: it measures lifetime achievement rather than current playing strength.

What other sport or mind game competition allows bad players to become champions by hiring good players ?
