The Internet discerns Jacob’s taste…

These algorithms online really know me. A guitar tool, a great chess book and how to play Black Sabbath…

    I hope you’re not being “Paranoid” 🙂

    Jacob Aagaard and Tony Iommi are also the joint worst Scrabble hands you can get…

    Praggnanandhaa and Nepomniatchchi must be the most valuable ones!?

    I would imagine some of the Chinese players would score highly, what with Zs,Qs and Js…

    Just spent a few minutes on the Scrabble thing – amongst Grandmasters, Dzindzichashvili comes out on top with 47 points, alongside Gonzalez-Quevedo (assuming you count both parts of his surname). Wojtkiewicz shares the bronze with Zlochevskij on 39 (though there might be a stewards’ enquiry on including the j).

    Praggnanandhaa and Nepomniatchchi both have long names, but moderate scores – I make it 22 and 28 respectively.

    Wooden spoon goes to Wesley So, with just two one-point letters. Mikhail Tal is amongst those scoring 3.

    You’re even sadder than me, Matt. Well done.

    @Johnnyboy
    I’m assuming that’s a compliment…?
