Nice Intro for the Zürich Chess Challenge:
Har Har :-)
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.
Here are the standings from the official site:
Can anyone explain the point system they use?
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.
1st round rapids complete
Anand Aronian 0-1
Caruana Nakamura 1-0
Gelfand - Carlsen 0-1
2nd round Naka-Anand 1-0, very quick win
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.
Aronian takes out Carlsen
Caruana beats Carlsen\
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....
Think they got married,they decided to use caruana for last name.
Why is it so hard to buy a properly sized chess set and board?
