  PhilFeeley: Why not all the games? Even the tournament site doesn't have them.
Jun-14-05  cade: Nice score for Naka.
Jun-14-05  refutor: <why not all the games? even the tournament site doesn't have them>

call me crazy, but don't you think the two things go hand in hand?

Jun-14-05  Knight13: Hey! There's only 5 games played by Nakamura recorded here. Why not 9?

Were there people who were rated under 2200?

Jun-14-05  DP12: Theoretically it doesn't matter as long as Naka participates. However organizers have time limitations so only games that are easily readable, fairly short, or very important get included.
Jun-14-05  SnoopDogg: <Why not all the games? Even the tournament site doesn't have them.>

Its because they really didn't happen like

Jun-14-05  roni.chessman: Why does chessgames register Nakamura's rating at 2752!??! Is this blitz or rapid or something?
Jun-14-05  iron maiden: It's his national USCF rating, not FIDE. It should probably be fixed.
Jun-14-05  roni.chessman: Kasparov should live in the US and get one too! :D then he'll probably hit 3200 USCF
Jun-15-05  yoozum: Any idea how many points Naka picked up here?
Jun-15-05  iron maiden: 7/8 (plus a bye) against this kind of opposition is probably worth 15 or 20 FIDE points. But apparently he won't be getting them for the July list.
Jun-15-05  MrSifter: <roni.chessman> Kasparov would probably be around 3050. (no joke)
Jun-15-05  zabbura2002: I don't see any Qh5 in any Nakamura's games!
Jun-15-05  iron maiden: This tournament was played back in March, before his infamous Qh5 against Sasikiran.
Jun-17-05  VishyFan: This tournament was indeed played in March, but I wonder if this is a rapid (or something of that sort) tournament coz this tournament doesn't figure in the rating lists!
Jun-17-05  Dick Brain: <VishyFan> It's a rated tournament, I'm sure. He'll get those points eventually.
