Nakamura seems to live at ICC. One drawn bullet game could mean more time Naka needs to spend getting his rating up. So that could in fact = loss of sleep.

|Aug-08-08|| ||VinnyRoo2002: I love the way this kid plays. I have no idea how good he'll become (I know he's pretty damn good already), but there's something really beautiful and original about the way he plays chess. I get a feeling he will climb up the rankings pretty rapidly.|
