    Nakamura rarely tweets after a horrible loss. You're likely to not see him tweet until either he wins again or after the tournament is over.

    Nakamura actually did tweet this time around, though in Italian.

    Can anyone explain the point system they use?

  • 6 months ago · Quote · #86

    Zinsch

    Classical games: 2 points/win, 1 point/draw

    Rapid games (4th February): 1 point/win, 0.5 points/draw

    Points from classical and rapid games get combined to determine the final rankings.

    2 for win 1 for draw in standard, 1 for win 0.5 for draw rapid.

    I think they should stick to 3-1-0

    Makes it more fair to the players not named Magnus, who actually lose games on occasion.

    Yeah, Anand blundered with Ne8 and it was very quickly lost. Still though, I love watching Nakamura play 1.b3 since it's my favorite blitz opening.

    Naka wins a very exciting game against Aronian

    Carlsen Anand draw in final round, by repeating one of th WC games. They each used about 2 minutes. I think that's disgusting, they get paid to play chess, they could at least go through the motions. Yeah, I know, Carlsen needed only .5 to win the tourney, but he should at least earn the draw....
