what do you think about levy today versus LL Scherer?

Eric68
02-17-2005, 10:31 AM
Levy should win, but then he would play Haehnel.... if Haehnel play at the same level in 1/4 than he play against tenconi, no chances for levy or scherrer....

Horatio Caine

Tut - Ascione was beatable. If he had been playing his nemesis Elseneer then i wouldn't have expected a win....but he should have been pushing there.

Horatio Caine
02-17-2005, 02:27 PM
Arv is up to 180 though - he is pretty solid here. However, he can drop out of top 250 if he doesn't do well in the next month. :eek:

Count Zero
02-17-2005, 02:39 PM
i think hes got 60 pts to defend next week so he'd better do something at cherbourg. but after that doesnt really have anything till wimby, so if he gets a decent result there and is consistent till wimby he should still do alright.
