  wallytherhino: Bangladesh Championship (2006):
[ROUND]-[OPPONENT'S RATING](rating of hosain-opponent) 1-2136(-332) 2-2147(-321) 3-2233(-235)
close ratings in round 5,7,10,12
Round five was a bit of a shocker winning a fine game against his opponent there. Most where well played games except the bloodless draw on the last round
Aug-01-06  mamun001: does anyone know why performed so poorly in the Olympiad after such spectacular performance in the national championship?
Nov-22-07  pawnofdoom: My guess is just that everyone has their lucky tournaments and their unlucky tournaments. It happens to me all the time. After a loss of maybe about 30 points in one tournament, I went to another tournament in one week and gained about 100 points (with a spectacular performance)

Another example is Ivanchuk. He was second seed in the Tal Memorial, but he ended the tournament witha minus score, and second to last. But just a few days later, he went to participate in the World Blitz Cup, and he just won it today!

Enamul Hossain beat Kjetil Lie so Bangladesh drew with big hitters Norway!!!

  wordfunph: "I flew to Round 1 of the World Cup in Khanty-Mansiysk, losing to a little-known player from a country that is little known in the chess world, Bangladesh."

- GM Pavel Eljanov (after losing to GM Enamul Hossain in 2007)
