Yes Nakamura scores the full point. Anand drew his game vs Giri.

Ray why don't you post in PGN, like most normal chess people do? (Oxymoron, I know).

He posts for those people who are too dumb to dowload the
PGN. Transferring a text from a live internet site to a dead
newsgroup - that's an important journalistic activity, since
there is no more Sloan bashing.

LOL, Phil may be nearly an IM, but he's not as smart as his close cousin Ray it seems...

Anand, again!? It will be Anand vs Carlsen round III, you watch. Carlsen will unwisely blunder a piece, maybe hang his queen, and Anand will make a lightning fast reply that fails to exploit the blunder. That's good for chess in the same way the New York Yankees playing some small town team is good for Major League Baseball, i.e., not good at all.

LOL Ray, you are nowhere near being a nearly IM - the scene at the top is very dynamic at the moment, with Caruana being #2, but Nakamura taking him out. I hope Anand doesn't get a third try.

My mate Adorjan says that if you took 128 top players and put them into a massive Swiss, ELO would not predict result.
