    BTW I don't want to derail this thread.
    Nakamura has said that money is quite tight for the organisers and players do not get paid a huge amount of money to play anyway. They play because of the reputation of the tournament not because of the money they receive.

    Erigaisi Arjun continues to tear apart the Challengers on 7/8. According to the tournament website this equates to TPR of 2898!
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    He is already too strong for the B Group. Also the B tournament this year is considerably weaker than the last one.
