Re: *** Chess Low Content Thread ***

As for the coin toss pick (which they were wrong about since no one got to pick anything) She did say that due to Annie doing so well with White and struggling with Black, would Annie maybe pick White. Which I think adds some potential suspense to the coin toss. But, yeah, I have noticed that she sometimes has to reel others in when certain claims are way too "Skip Bayless" or whatever.

I think Jenn made it clear Black was the obvious objective pick. However, it very well could be +EV for someone like Annie who seems to be just going with whatever to choose White. If it gives any real psychological boost to her that maybe worth more than the X% she is objectively giving up.
