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!!
