Jun-19-07  Timex: Congrats to Nakamura!! For a stunning 5.5/6!!!
Jun-19-07  pacelli: I think Korchnoi was the 'real' winner:-) look at his score!
Jun-19-07  THE pawn: Yeah, but look at his opponents' ratings.

  WannaBe: Especially in the last round, where Korchnoi 'played' Serper: Serper vs Korchnoi, 2007 =)
Jun-20-07  Resignation Trap: Some players were exhausted as early as round three: B Finegold vs D Sharavdorj, 2007 .
Jun-20-07  dabearsrock1010: was there some sort of no draw rule in effect, loking at the first 25 games all but 1 was decisive...
Jun-20-07  wanabe2000: With the Krush victory over Shabalov, and scoring 4 1/2-1 1/2, does this qualify as a GM norm? Does that even apply in this tournament?
Jun-20-07  whiskeyrebel: evidently it doesn't count in a tournament this short...

  WannaBe: Ms. Krush won $739.50

Which may (not) have covered her total expenses...

Jun-21-07  Ashram64: finally.. cg has posted these games!
Jun-22-07  NimzoKing: <Which may (not) have covered her total expenses...> GM's get paid to enter tournaments - all her expenses will already be paid for her, with a little bonus. The money she won is just all profit so to say
Jun-28-07  Timex: <THE pawn> You are correct, but Korchnoi drew with E Gurbanzade, who is rated 2166! If he won that game, he would have one the toruanemtn.
Jun-28-07  whiskeyrebel: Timex, technically if he had won that game he would have been paired differently. Not that I don't have confidence in Mr. Korchnoi..he simply would have faced different opponents.
