|May-12-13|| ||waustad: They are going to rapid tiebreak tomorrow!|
|May-12-13|| ||Petrosianic: Rapid Tiebreak? No Most Losses, Sonnenborn, or One Potato Two Potato like in a Candidates Tournament?|
|May-12-13|| ||schweigzwang: Imagine.|
|May-12-13|| ||dx9293: <Petrosianic> :-))|
|May-12-13|| ||Everett: < Petrosianic: Rapid Tiebreak? No Most Losses, Sonnenborn, or One Potato Two Potato like in a Candidates Tournament?>|
Perhaps they should choose by deciding who makes the most bitter and sarcastic posts.
|May-12-13|| ||Marmot PFL: With a national title at stake there has to be a playoff.|
|May-12-13|| ||parmetd: Well and look at Ramirez's easy schedule... he didn't even have to play Gareev.|
|May-12-13|| ||RookFile: Whatever. Kamsky wins the tiebreak. No worries.|
|May-12-13|| ||dx9293: 2614 TPR for Troff in the US Championship. That should equal a GM norm (no federation requirements for National Championships or National Team Championships).|
|May-13-13|| ||Ezzy: Top 6 get a World Cup place.|
|May-13-13|| ||schweigzwang: Whoa, look at that huge tie for 6th place!|
|May-13-13|| ||Strongest Force: Looks like 1 blitz game will decide after both rapid games were drawn.|
|May-13-13|| ||Edeltalent: <StrongestForce> From what I understood, it won't be a Blitz game. White gets 45min and has to win, so both players will (secretly) bid how few time they are willing to accept to get Black and draw odds.|
|May-13-13|| ||Edeltalent: In fact Ramirez "won" the bid and got Black, offering 19:40min (Kamsky bid 20min). There's an increment of 5sec per move.|
|May-13-13|| ||Strongest Force: That's better than blitz. Thx Edeltalent.|
|May-13-13|| ||jamesmaskell: Kamsky wins the Armageddon game. Cant knock Ramirez. He played his socks off. Well done to him.|
|May-13-13|| ||Marmot PFL: So Kamsky won as expected, as he would also have won on the tiebreaks.|
|May-13-13|| ||Eyal: Both Christiansen & Shabalov finished without a single drawn game.|
Was it announced who qualified to the world cup among those who finished with 5 points? (I gather there are 5 qualifying spots open for players other than Kamsky, who already qualified based on his rating).
|May-13-13|| ||Just Another Master: Thg top 5 made it even Holt who really deserved it. Terrific final games today, great excitement, congrats to both players for putting on a great show!|
|May-13-13|| ||Eyal: Ok, according to the report on chess.com (http://www.chess.com/news/krush-cro...) the 5th championship qualifier is Christiansen (in addition to Ramirez, Onischuk, Gareev & Holt); with Kamsky (and Nakamura, of course) qualifying by rating, and Shabalov & Kaidanov qualified already from the 2012 Continental Championship.|
|May-13-13|| ||schweigzwang: Yes, at the tournament site it show that among those at 5/9 with five games with black, Christiansen had the highest S-B score.|
|May-13-13|| ||waustad: Congratulations to Ramirez for the best result of his career.|
|May-13-13|| ||The Last Straw: Congrats to Kamsky for becoming US Champion!!|
|May-13-13|| ||chessgames.com: We have the US Chess Championship (Playoff) (2013) games now. Congratulations to User: DarkNolan!|
|Aug-24-13|| ||JointheArmy: <Larry Christiansen +5 -4 = 0> |
Gotta love LarryC.
