  nasmichael: Does Black stand better here?

I have not yet looked at the games, but the "good"ness of the tournament includes his enjoyment and what he learned from the games that he played. Even at this level, if he Enjoyed Himself, and learned a lot, then the tournament was "Good" for him. Remember, if he wants it for himself, he can have a long and fruitful career in the game he loves. This may have been a positive turning point.

May-28-05  Robyn Hode: I doubt if someone went, say, -4 in a tournament that he would enjoy himself and even if he learned something he would most likely not consider it good.
Jun-15-05  chessdrummer: Nakamura won this game and told me in an interview it was his best. He also was +4 which isn't bad in a strong field.
Jun-15-05  iron maiden: He was +4 but got most of those wins in the 45-minute games. In the slower games he scored just 2/4 against much lower opposition, so I agree with those who say he had a bad tournament.
Jun-16-05  MrSifter: Has anyone calculated Nakamura's rating at this point? I know he'll be 2660/2661 on the next list, but there is still Foxwoods/HB to consider. My guess is 2667-2671.
Jun-16-05  aw1988: 2851.
