  DIO: Wow! When did this come up?

  HeMateMe: Sunday am.
Aug-07-11  dotsamoht: Third! GO NAKA!
Aug-07-11  dotsamoht: Looks like Naka versus Alex Lenderman in the last round. If either wins, he wins the US Open. Zapata has a last round draw, so he ties for first if they tie.
Aug-07-11  dotsamoht: I cannot find the pairings for the final round anywhere. My friend Jim Dean is in the top 24 with 6 points after 8 rounds. GO JIM!
Aug-07-11  dotsamoht: Jim Dean drew GM Lars Bo Hansen in Round 7 to get to 6 points. Wow!
Aug-07-11  hellopolgar: The final is today, so I guess we will soon find out the result through twitter. https://twitter.com/#!/GMHikaru
Aug-07-11  laskersteinitz: The games are broadcast on MonRoi.

Does anybody know what the time control for the last few games is? I can find close to no information online about this tournament!!

Also, when does today's last round start?

  Kinghunt: <dotsamoht> You can find pairings and results here: http://www.alchess.com/chess/11/uso...

Your friend Jim Dean is up against an acquaintance of mine, IM Marc Esserman.

Aug-07-11  hellopolgar: Does anyone know what -H- means in the pairing table?
Aug-07-11  laskersteinitz: It means half-point bye.
Aug-07-11  laskersteinitz: I think Nakamura is going to take it all today!
Aug-07-11  hellopolgar: so why do some players get one half-point bye?
Aug-07-11  hellopolgar: nvm, wikipedia rocks

<In a Swiss-system tournament with an odd number of players, one will get a bye each round, but not all players will get a bye.>

Aug-07-11  dangerhump: Naka position isn't so great through 13 moves, imo

I think most large Swiss tournaments will allow players to request one bye during the tournament. Some players use them so they can leave early or get a little extra rest. Also, if there is an odd number of players someone gets a bye.

Aug-07-11  laskersteinitz: A half-point bye occurs when the player specifically says he or she doesn't want to play in that round. You typically have to request it in advance though.

When there are an odd number of players, generally the lowest-rated player from the lowest score group will get a FULL-point bye.

Aug-07-11  hellopolgar: <dangerhump> according to Rybka, the position after 14. Qb3 is equal.(-0.09 at d18)
Aug-07-11  dangerhump: <hellopolgar> I just ran it through Stockfish deeper than that and it came up with +0.48 depth 27

Although, now after 20. Bg3 it has it at +0.28 at depth 22...so all in all nothing great for Naka unfortunately as I am rooting for him.

Aug-07-11  dangerhump: Whoops, now he either blundered or is sacrificing a pawn with 20...e5

+1.13 at 24 depth

Aug-07-11  dangerhump: Also I mean moves 18 not 20
Aug-07-11  dangerhump: Nevermind all the above...ICC got the moves relayed incorrectly
Aug-07-11  dangerhump: Soooo...after the correct position is displayed after 23...Na4 I have an eval of -0.48 at depth 24
Aug-07-11  hellopolgar: +1.13 at 24 depth means nothing, that's one pawn worth of advantage after 24 perfect moves...in fact as i am typing this, the game went on and now the evaluation is 0.0 after black's 23. ... Na4
Aug-07-11  dx9293: Apparently, Lenderman-Nakamura ends in a draw.
Aug-07-11  dangerhump: <hellopolgar> I agree, the eval means nothing; the players still have to find the moves!
