Nov-26-03  PinkPanther: On the scoresheet of this game is Nakamura's rating correct? Was he really rated that low so recently? If so, I guess that should give us all hope that we can all gain 400 points in 2 years.

  PizzatheHut: This is Asuka Nakamura, Hikaru's brother. I know, I didn't think there would be more than one Nakamura to get confused with. Not exactly the most common of names :)

Oh, thanks. I didn't even notice the first initial not being H.
