|Jul-05-09|| ||laskersteinitz: Official website: http://www.worldopen.com/|
|Jul-05-09|| ||laskersteinitz: Nakamura is off to Spain: http://www.donostiachess.com/en/|
|Jul-05-09|| ||whiskeyrebel: Wow, 7/9 at the World open by playing 5 G-45's, just 2 classic games and claiming 2 half point byes for the last 2 rounds in advance planning on having the points to climb on a jet to Spain and let them mail him his money. He created his own "2 day" schedule. "Ladies and gentlemen, Hikaru has left the building".|

Nakamura's 2(!)-day World Open Schedule: I love it!
|Jul-05-09|| ||ganso: I wonder how the other GM participants feel about Naka's departure... Like leaving the table as soon as you've finished eating.|
|Jul-05-09|| ||timhortons: naka could end up winning the 3rd or 4th position...He then win few thousand of dollars here:)|
Naka play for the money:)
|Jul-05-09|| ||MaxxLange: looks like Naka will get at worst a share of 2nd, actually. There's only one other player with 6 points going into the last 2 rounds, GM Victor Mikhalevski. He takes first with 1.5 from the last 2 games. The guys with 5 points can tie for 2nd by winning out.|
|Jul-05-09|| ||ganso: Mikhalevski looks to be losing in Rd 8, which means that Naka will do no worse than tie for 1st.|
|Jul-05-09|| ||dx9293: Mikhalevski has lost to Smirin.|
|Jul-05-09|| ||unsound: Nakamura even had a realistic shot at clear first, needing draws on the top 3 boards in the last round (or 2 draws and Stocket beating Mikhalevski). But right now it looks like Najer, at least, is beating Ehlvest with the black pieces. Pretty impressive if Najer repeats as champion.|
|Jul-07-09|| ||frogbert: ok, nakamura only played two rated games, but does anyone know how many "classical" games (to be rated) kamsky played?|
i'm not too impressed with the info provided by the organizer regarding the top players and which schedules they played...
|Jul-08-09|| ||Don Cossacks: Slavic domination again?!|
|Jul-08-09|| ||kurtrichards: Najer won his final game against Ehlvest and tied Nakamura for first place. OK. But what is the final result? What is the final standing?|
|Jul-08-09|| ||MaxxLange: Najer was declared the World Open winner, because Naka was not there for a playoff. He gets the title and bonus money, but splits the main prize money (1st + 2nd/2)|
|Jul-08-09|| ||dx9293: <frogbert> Kamsky played the 5-Day Schedule, so all of his games should be rated.|
7-Day Schedule: all games 40/2, SD/1.
5-Day Schedule: all games 40/2, SD/1.
4-Day Schedule: 2 games G/75, 5 games 40/2, SD/1.
3-Day Schedule: 5 games G/45, 4 games 40/2, SD/1.
|Jul-08-09|| ||dx9293: [EDIT] 4-Day Schedule: 2 games G/75, 7 games 40/2, SD/1.|
|Jul-08-09|| ||kurtrichards: Thanks a lot <MaxxLange> but am interested in the final standing of 1st to 15th place.|
|Jul-08-09|| ||MaxxLange: <kurtrichards> oh, I misunderstood. the official site at www.worldopen.com has a link to the results on the front page. I can't seem to link directly to the results page.|
|Jul-08-09|| ||kurtrichards: I found it now <MaxxLange>. Thanks for the link. There are thousands of cg subscribers here but you alone bothered to respond to my question. Thanks again and may your tribe increase.|
|Jul-08-09|| ||zanshin: Under 2200 division, User: fusilli tied 3rd-8th (7.0/9.0) (source: http://www.worldopen.com/)|
|Jul-08-09|| ||MaxxLange: <kurtrichards> no problem!|
this World Open talk page has not been getting much attention from members, for some reason, even when the tourney was going on. I'm sure someone eventually would have answered you today if I hadn't, though
congratulations to <fusilli>! 7 out of 9 is very hard to score at the World Open, in any section.
I thought about going, but I am in a "save your money, you fool" place in my life right now, and I'm choosing to play in regional tournaments this summer instead. Next year, I'm there, it has been too long.
|Jul-12-09|| ||Manic: <laskersteinitz: Nakamura is done. He requested 2 half-point byes for rounds 8 and 9.>|
<timhortons: naka could end up winning the 3rd or 4th position...He then win few thousand of dollars here:)
Naka play for the money:)>
In a tournament I played in, I was not allowed to have a half point bye in the 6th round of a 7 round tourney because of the possibility I may win prize money. I think it should be the same here and Naka should have to forfeit these two games. It is unfair that he forgoes the risk of losing two games while still having the chance to win the money.
In my case it was only a few hundred dollars but in this case it is in the thousands!
|Jul-12-09|| ||zoren: it is fair complaint|
|Jul-15-09|| ||CanteurX: Let's not panic.
Evidently Nakamura requested the two bies before the tournament began.
He needed to arrive in San Sebastian, Spain in time
for the Donostia Chess Festival.
|Jul-16-09|| ||Manic: That still doesn't mean he should get those byes. It is likely there would be a lot of people willing to take two draws so they don't have to play those games and are able to get a guaranteed point. Nakamura doesn't even have to EARN those two half-points by drawing to two GMs he just gets the points. He should at least be declared ineligle for prize money.|
